Cal Twomey's Phantom Draft Prediction: 24

Medium midfielder who can also use his line-breaking pace and long kicking to provide drive from defence. An All-Australian at Under-16s level in 2019, we only saw thin slices of his undoubted flare and athleticism in three NAB League games due to injury, averaging 18.3 disposals (14 uncontested) at 76 per cent efficiency. A state-ranked underage sprinter, he was appointed joint captain of Victoria Country Under-19s this year, underlying his leadership potential. Confirmed his overall athleticism with a 6 minute 20 second time for the 2km in Draft Combine Strava testing.

Weight: 81kg

Date of Birth: 17/10/03

Tall defender/forward who has been a swingman this year at school and club level after winning All-Australian U16 honours in 2019 as a defender. Strong in defence for the Australian Under-18s Academy team against Geelong (VFL) in the annual AFL Challenge match, he then starred for Western Australia in the championships match against South Australia with 10 marks and 18 disposals to be one of the best afield across half-back. Played eight matches at under-18s level for Swan Districts and was a key player in defence in their premiership win this season. His father Steve played over 250 games in the WAFL, including some representative state football to help shape his son’s early career. A state representative in cricket at under-age level, football is now his focus with his contested and intercept marking - as well as his spoiling and ball use - his major weapons.
