Following Friday's contest at Punt Road Oval between the top players in this year's crop, next year's draft hopefuls will take to the same field in the under-17s clash.
The ability to trade future draft picks means recruiters must keep a closer eye than ever on the next batch of prospects, with the 2017 draft already highly touted.

Charlie Spargo, the son of former North Melbourne player Paul, will be playing for the Chris Judd side, alongside skillful half-back Hunter Clark, dashing midfielder Lochie O'Brien and talented tall Jarrod Brander.
Busy midfielder Jack Higgins is one of a number of players in the Michael O'Loughlin squad to have already showed their skill ahead of next year's draft, with Joel Garner and tall pair Connor Ballenden and Sam Hayes winning attention for their development this year.
Father-son prospects Patrick Naish (the son of former Tiger Chris) and Jackson Edwards (son of former Crow Tyson) will be playing in the game.
Highly rated Eastern Ranges forward Jaidyn Stephenson will miss the game with a broken hand he suffered at training last week in preparation for the All Stars match.
At the conclusion of each match, one player will receive a NAB best-on-ground award.
