PLAYERS TO WATCH

Clayton Gay

DOB: 23/03/2002
Height: 183cm
Weight: 77kg
Position: Medium Utility

A natural footballer who can play just about anywhere on the field, Dandenong’s Clayton Gay comes into 2020 as the AFL Draft crop’s Mr Fix It. He can play in defence, in attack or in stints through the midfield – though by his own self admittance he needs to build his endurance before those stints become longer. He seems most settled in the defensive half of the ground, using his terrific foot skills and footy IQ to advantage, and is one who can often mop up in defence when needed. Playing every game for the Stingrays in the 2019 season, Gay was one of just two Dandenong players to make the 2020 AFL Academy Vic Country hub, and looms as arguably the Stingrays’ top prospect.

Tyanna Smith

DOB: 29/10/2002
Height: 170cm
Position: Balanced Midfielder

Smith is arguably the most well-balanced AFL Women’s Draft prospect in the 2020 draft crop. She has a perfect mix of offensive and defensive traits, with high ball-winning and tackling abilities, as well as the capability to hit the scoreboard or set up her teammates for scoring opportunities. Often starting at centre bounces, Smith can play off flanks up either end, or on the wings, but her break-neck acceleration away from opposition would-be tacklers make her the most damaging on the inside. Once she gains an inch, she will take a mile, and she is a pure match winner at her best, hardly playing a bad game and is a key piece in Vic Country’s side for the AFL Women’s Under-18 Championships.
