THE 2024 Marsh AFL Under-18 Boys National Championships continue on Sunday with a double-header at Ikon Park when Vic Metro takes on the Allies from 10.05am AEST, followed by Vic Country's clash with South Australia from 12.30pm AEST. 

Sunday marks the first game for both the Victorian teams in this year's U18s tournament, with a host of top prospects playing their first game of the championships, and looms as one of the most important days in shaping this year's draft crop.

Players to watch in Vic Metro's clash with the Allies include Josh Smillie, Jagga Smith, Levi Ashcroft and Christian Moraes, who will face off against gun Gold Coast Academy prospect Leo Lombard as well as his Suns Academy teammate Zeke Uwland, brother of Bodhi. 

After Metro and the Allies do battle, a Vic Country squad featuring tall twin brothers Jack and Matt Whitlock, lively small forward Joe Berry and bottom-age prospect Willem Duursma, brother of AFL/W players Xavier, Zane and Yasmin, will line up against an SA side featuring Sid Draper, and father-son prospects Lucas and Ben Camporeale (Carlton) and Tyler Welsh (Adelaide).

Top Vic Country midfield talents Finn O'Sullivan and Sam Lalor will miss Sunday's game through injury.
