Peel Thunder midfielder Hayden Ballantyne has been added to the WA State squad that will take on Victoria on Saturday, May 26.
Ballantyne kicked three goals in his team's loss to Subiaco last Saturday. The 19-year-old from Baldivis who made his WAFL debut in 2005 and has played 26 senior games, has kicked 11 goals in five games so far this season, including four goals against East Perth in Round 4. The training squad now stands at 34 with the omissions of Mathew Seal, Tallan Ames, Justin Sprigg and Blake Broadhurst. Broadhurst injured a shoulder in the Lions win over Perth in Round 5 and was always going to be in a race against time to be fit for the game against the VFL at TEAC Oval in Victoria.
WA State coach Ashley Prescott said the inclusion of Ballantyne was proof that if players continued to show good form there was still room for inclusion in the State squad.
"He is just a genuinely quick player who could be used to burst through the middle and he is also capable of kicking a few goals," Prescott said.
