The 2018 NAB AFL Draft Combine was completed on Friday with the 2km time trial.
In a change from previous years, players were handicapped according to their Yo Yo test results, rather than normal position groupings (small defenders etc).
Three Geelong Falcons featured in the top 10, with Sam Walsh beating the record time of 6m 09 set by Dylan Moore in 2017, but finished third to South Australia’s Jacob Kennerley who set the new Combine record of 6m 04.
