U16 Rams squad announced ahead of Champs

The 25-man AFL NSW/ACT U16 Rams team has been announced ahead of the NAB AFL U16 National Championships starting in June.

Sydney Swans Academy  members are prominent in the squad with 16 selections following their recent Academy Series two-one win-loss record, while nine players feature from the GWS GIANTS Academy.

The AFL NSW/ACT U16 Rams will play three matches with the first against Tasmania at Blacktown International Sportspark on 12 June 2017.

A month later they will travel to the Gold Coast to take on the Northern Territory on 10 July 2017.

Finally, they will round out the Championships with a game against Queensland on 15 July 2017.

Nicholas Brewer was a standout for the Swans in the recent Academy Series, working hard in midfield and getting a lot of the ball.

Joshua Rayner and Jackson Barling were also impressive up front for the red and the white, kicking a number of goals, and making them players to watch during the upcoming Championships.

Liam Delahunty was rewarded for his good form after the GIANTS’ Round 3 win during the Academy Series, with the GIANTS forward kicking four goals for the match.

The whole squad will go into camp on 2 June 2017 in Albury.
