Victoria (41) led the way from South Australia with 12 invites, followed by Western Australia and NSW/ACT both with seven, Queensland five and Tasmania and Northern Territory with two.

Dandenong Stingrays boasted the most Combine invitees with eight - headlined by defensive duo Jacob Weitering and Kieran Collins - while Oakleigh Chargers have six potential draftees invited to take part in the October 8-11 Combine.
