On Saturday the 2nd April at 3:00pm, Gippsland Power Boys take on the Murray Bushrangers at La Trobe University, Bundoora.
The Power boast five players in the 2022 Vic Country talent hub; defender Jonti Schuback, ruck Harvey Howe, small forward Jacob Konstanty, bottom-aged key forward Archer Reid and bottom-aged utility Zane Duursma, who is also in the National Academy.
Whilst the Power have a few 19-year-olds returning to the club, talent operations lead Scott McDougal is not yet sure how much they will feature at NAB League level, with a few performing well at VFL clubs over the summer.
“Mitchell Moschetti has been playing at Carlton, and Hawthorn is really happy with Max Walton and his output in a few practice matches. We’re hoping we’ll see them early in the year, but if they’re playing VFL footy that’ll be great for them too. “
“Lachlan Rathjen is an elite athlete, I think he won the sprint last year and was right up there in the agility. He was playing some pretty good football for us at the end of last year after overcoming a few injuries, so if he gets a good run at it there might be some interest in him.”
Midfielder Bailey Humphrey was another prospect named by McDougal as a possible breakout contender after missing out on the Vic Country hub selection, having also trialled for the Under 17 squad last year.
