2017 Draft Guns: Charlie Constable

4304669 2017-draft-guns-charlie-constable

2017 Draft Guns: Charlie Constable The tall midfielder has similar attributes to Carlton's Patrick Cripps.

Charlie Constable didn't play in Vic Metro's first game of the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships, instead watching along from home as his side toppled Western Australia in Perth.

But he didn't have to wait much longer to show his wares. The next week Constable came into the team and collected a game-high 31 disposals, plus six marks and six inside-50s, as Metro crunched Vic Country at Punt Road Oval.

It was the start of a productive carnival for Constable, who averaged 26 disposals in three games, pushed forward at times, distributed the ball nicely and won All Australian honours.

Constable was also a key player for the Sandringham Dragons on their passage to the TAC Cup Grand Final, overcoming a groin injury in the finals to return for the premiership decider and gather 21...

2017 Draft Guns: Luke Davies-Uniacke

2017 Draft Guns: Luke Davies-Uniacke The Dandenong Stingrays' product is one of the best midfielders in the draft pool

A shoulder reconstruction late last year meant that Luke Davies-Uniacke started this season a little behind the eight-ball, but he quickly made inroads to show his wares. 

Davies-Uniacke announced himself as one of the leading players in the pool with an excellent showing for the NAB AFL Academy against the Northern Blues VFL side, when he picked up a team-high 22 disposals and six clearances. 

His season had its up and down moments, but the highs regularly showed his potential, including a blistering start to the NAB AFL Under-18 Championships, when he picked up 34 disposals in a best-on-ground game for Vic Country. 

Davies-Uniacke is at his best when he's ripping the ball out of a scrimmage, bolting away and then hitting a teammate with a neat pass. There's not...

Eagles return to training

Simpson press conference 20.11.17 West Coast Eagles coach Adam Simpson speaks to the media as the Eagles 1-4 year players returned to the track for pre-season training

West Coast will focus on honing its fundamental skills in the four weeks leading up to Christmas break, according to senior coach Adam Simpson.

Nine players hit the training track for the Eagles’ first official session of the 2018 pre-season at Lathlain Park this morning.

Two senior players, star ruckman Nic Naitanui and midfielder Chris Masten, got their preparations for the upcoming campaign underway alongside Malcolm Karpany, Daniel Venables, Josh Rotham, Willie Rioli, Jake Waterman, Francis Watson and Tarir Bayok.

Simpson said the club’s fledglings should be looking to impress from day one given there was several spots up for grabs after the club made 13 list changes during the off-season.

Draft bargains: Picks 105 and 87

GrantDraft landscape.jpg

Footscray used its 150th selection in the 1998 draft to secure Chris Grant

West Coast will enter Friday’s 2017 NAB AFL Draft with eight picks up its sleeve courtesy of some crafty work during October’s Trade Period. The Eagles currently own picks 13, 21, 26, 32, 37, 69, 87 and 105.

Let’s take a look at how the club and its rivals have used the aforementioned selections in previous drafts to snap up some of the game’s most revered stars and serviceable athletes.

Pick No. 105 and 87

Although the West Coast Eagles have never had picks 105 and 87 at their disposal, other clubs have used the late round selections to secure some quality footballers.

In 1988, Footscray used its 150th selection in the draft to secure the services of young Daylesford product Chris Grant, who turned out to be one of the best late pick-ups in draft. Grant, who debuted in 1990, carved out an enviable career at...

2017 Draft Guns: Andrew Brayshaw

2017 Draft Guns: Andrew Brayshaw The prolific midfielder has come into pick one contention after a big season.

Andrew Brayshaw started this season with a good appreciation of the challenges of getting drafted by an AFL club.

In 2014, he saw older brother Angus picked up by Melbourne at selection No.3 after a terrific season where nearly everything went right. But last year, he witnessed the other side of the draft, with another older brother, Hamish, overlooked.

Brayshaw has made sure that won't happen to him this season. Since coming back from a minor injury mid-season, the Sandringham Dragon has wasted no time to prove he is among the best midfielders in this year's draft crop.

It was his end to the season which truly cemented him among the top rung of players, as he powered the Dragons to the TAC Cup Grand Final and then backed it up with an outstanding week at the NAB AFL...

2017 Draft Phantom form guide: November edition

After all those games, all that athletic testing and all of the club interviews, we are finally a week away from the NAB AFL Draft.

It is crunch time for recruiters to finalise their lists of prospects, and the same applies to us at AFL.com.au as we reveal our final Phantom Form Guide for 2017. 

This is our rating of the best 30 players in this year's pool. It is not a mock draft or necessarily an indication of where the players will get selected or where bids may come for father-son or academy players.

1 Cameron Rayner

POS: Half-forward/midfielder, Ht 187cm, Wt 88kg, DOB 21/10/1999
From Western Jets/Vic Metro
October ranking: 1

Rayner is the most exciting, game-changing prospect in the pool and for that reason is the No.1 player in the Phantom Form Guide. It was rare for Rayner to play a game this year without showing at least a couple of his tricks – whether it be an explosive burst from a stoppage,...

Drew Petrie poses for a photo with some of the camp's talented female footballers

More than 50 budding football talents made their way to Karratha last week to participate in the inaugural West Coast Eagles Naitanui Academy Pilbara Region football camp.

Children aged between 11-16 ventured from Port Hedland, Newman, Onslow and Yandeyarra to attend the three-day camp, which was supported by AFL legend and new West Coast Eagles game development head coach Drew Petrie.

The 332-game veteran was ably assisted by West Coast community game development general manager Richard O’Connell, Eagles game development coordinator Kim Hannah and several enthusiastic staff from V Swans.

Petrie, who only retired from the AFL in September, said it was great to hit the ground running in his new role.

“I think it was my third day of work with the club and it was a great induction,” he said.

The West Coast Eagles last embarked on a community service tour of Cambodia in 2015

A group of nine West Coast Eagles players will head to Cambodia on Thursday, embarking on a five-day community service tour to an underprivileged village in the Kampong Speu Province.

Thanks to Airbnb, the official partner of Cambodia 2017, Elliot Yeo, Tom Barrass, Liam Duggan, Dom Sheed, Kurt Mutimer, Matthew Allen, Tom Cole, Luke Partington and Jackson Nelson, along with West Coast chairman Russell Gibbs and a group of coaches and staff, will build houses for a remote village situated over an hour outside the country’s capital of Phnom Penh.

The travelling party will also take in a cultural history tour to learn more about Cambodia’s tragic past, get a first-hand account of the atrocities committed by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge regime and to see how a nation of people have built the resilience to...

Yeo eager to give back

The West Coast Eagles set flight for Cambodia this morning

West Coast Eagles club champion Elliot Yeo says he cannot wait to join teammates and staff on this morning’s flight to Cambodia to participate in the club’s biennial community service tour of the Asian nation.

Yeo was booked to go on the club’s last tour of Cambodia in 2015 but post-season surgery robbed him of the chance to attend. His mum, Wendy, took his place in the expedition two years ago.

“My mum went up two years ago. I was supposed to go up as well last time, but I came out of surgery and wasn’t 100 per cent, so I missed out,” Yeo told ABC Perth Breakfast.

“Mum came back and it was a pretty big experience for her.”

The West Coast Eagles, partnered by Airbnb and the Tabitha Foundation, are en route to Cambodia for a fourth time to build 20 houses for a remote village situated an hour outside the country’s capital of...

2017 Draft Guns: Jack Petruccelle

2017 Draft Guns: Jack Petruccelle The Vic Metro speedster is one of the most dynamic prospects in the draft pool

Jack Petruccelle broke free from the stoppage and swooped on the bouncing ball. Within three or four quick steps, he had cleared himself from the pack of players, before straightening to kick a goal from the pocket.

It was one of five majors Petruccelle booted for the Northern Knights that afternoon against the Gippsland Power earlier this year, in a performance that announced him as one of the most eye-catching efforts of the season.

It was Petruccelle's best game of the season, but he also finished his campaign with an encouraging showing in the NAB AFL All Stars clash on Grand Final morning, when he kicked a goal and gave recruiters another glimpse of his talents.

WhyTheyShouldPickHimv2.jpg

He's the quickest player in the draft, for a start. Petruccelle ran 2.82 seconds for the 20-metre...

Naughton stakes his draft claim

Naught landscape.jpg

Aaron Naughton was a standout at the NAB AFL Draft Combine

Aaron Naughton's end to the season at senior level in the WAFL has seen him become the hottest property among clubs looking to add a tall prospect to their list at this month's NAB AFL Draft.

The 17-year-old has been strongly linked to Fremantle (pick No.5) and Collingwood (No.6) with their top-10 picks, while he's also set to come under consideration from St Kilda with its pair of early selections (No.7 and 8).

Naughton played for the Dockers' WAFL affiliate Peel Thunder in the second half of the year and impressed with his athleticism and tight-checking approach.

Fremantle's pair of early picks means the club could look to bolster its midfield with pick two – Luke Davies-Uniacke, Andrew Brayshaw and Paddy Dow will all be considered – and then go for the local Naughton at pick five.

The Pies are also in the mix to grab...

2017 Draft Guns: Paddy Dow

2017 Draft Guns: Paddy Dow It's not hard to see why the rugged playmaker is a likely top-three pick

If you want a measure of Paddy Dow's consistency, his record in three seasons at Geelong Grammar is worth a mention. 

Since moving from Swan Hill in country Victoria to the prestigious boarding school, Dow has won its best and fairest three years running – from year 10 through to year 12 in 2017. If nothing else it shows what most recruiters know about Dow: he turns up to play every week. 

That was certainly the case this season at every level for Dow, who swiftly rose into early pick contention on the back of some very good showings for the Bendigo Pioneers and at national level for Vic Country. 

The midfielder won All Australian honours for his efforts during the under-18 carnival, and was in terrific form late in the year before a shoulder injury, and subsequent surgery, ruled...
