LISTEN: Vic Metro swingman, son of Saint, looms as leading tall in 2019 draft

FISCHER McAsey has developed into the leading tall in this year's NAB AFL Draft, but the question remains as to whether he's best suited to the backline or attack. 

The Sandringham Dragons prospect joins this week's episode of Road to the Draft and discusses his preferred spot.

The potential top-10 pick reflects on his under-18 championships for Vic Metro, when he was named his side's most valuable player, and discusses some of the strange questions he's received while being interviewed by clubs this season.
