The list of state Combine names includes 10 players that were part of the NAB AFL U18 Championships for Vic Country and Vic Metro this year, with the likes of Billy Evans (Bendigo Pioneers), Aaron Wilson (Dandenong Stingrays), Joe Maishman (Geelong Falcons), Sam Switkowski (Northern Knights), Ben Allan (Calder Cannons) and Rory Sheridan Ferrie (Eastern Ranges) all invited.
Also among the names are Western Bulldogs father/son prospect Jayden Foster (Calder Cannons) and Dylan Hodge (Geelong Falcons), brother of Hawthorn captain Luke.
Geelong Falcons and Oakleigh Chargers topped the list of state Combine invitees with six each, followed by Calder Cannons, Northern Knights and Sandringham Dragons with four each.
All TAC Cup regions will have players at the Combine, with Sandringham leading the way with 12 players invited to the various combines, followed by Oakleigh Chargers with 11, and Calder and Geelong with 10.
Each AFL club provided a list of 25 players who they wanted to attend the state-based combine, with players that had two or more nominations receiving an invitation.
The state Draft Combine will see all the testing take place on Saturday October 4 in Melbourne, measuring a combination of athleticism and football skills as well as assessing each player’s personality and character – all essential elements clubs need to consider in the drafting process.
