56 TAC Cup players invited to Draft Combine

The TAC Cup has provided 56 of the 83 invitees (67 per cent) to October’s NAB AFL Draft Combine announced today.

29 of the TAC Cup invitees are from metro clubs and 27 are from country clubs, with the Eastern Ranges providing 10 invitees – the most from any of the 12 TAC Cup clubs.

Behind the Ranges, the Bendigo Pioneers provide seven invitees, the Geelong Falcons and Sandringham Dragons provide six each, the Dandenong Stingrays and Oakleigh Chargers five, the Murray Bushrangers and Northern Knights four, the GWV Rebels three, and the Calder Cannons, Gippsland Power and Western Jets two.

The Draft Combine will take place at Etihad Stadium from October 3-6, with invitees participating in a range of physical and psychological tests in front of AFL club recruiting staff.

Invitees to the Combine required nominations from at least four AFL clubs, with a further group of TAC Cup players expected to be invited to the Victorian State Combine in coming weeks.
