Falcons manager urges clubs to consider younger guns
[u][url]http://www.geelongadvertiser.com.au/article/2008/11/19/32175_geelong_spo... [quote]TWO 17-year-old Geelong Falcons players loom as hidden treasures in next week's AFL national draft. Falcons regional manager Michael Turner is encouraging clubs to select dashing midfielder Luke Rounds and key position prospect Luke Thompson, or risk the prospect missing out on the pair in a year's time. The pair - who are born two days apart - are still eligible to play in the TAC Cup next year, but Turner believes if they stay and play with the Falcons, both have the potential to develop into top-20 picks in next year's draft. "If they get into the top 20 next year, with the draft concessions for the new Gold Coast team, they (clubs) are not going to get them," Turner said.[/quote]
