    Brandon Jack: Brother of Kieren

    Anyone have any news on Kieren Jack's younger brother who (if I remember correctly) was reported as having a leaning towards AFL over League and was showing plenty of promise?

    Brant Jack, playing for Pennant Hills. That's all I know, you might want to head over to the NSW/ACT forum to find out more.

    Sure that's Jack's brother? There is a Brant Jack playing for Pennant Hill who, at the end of last season, had played 100 senior games. That's pretty good going for a kid who is 16 or so years old!

    Edit: Jaclk's brother is called Brandon. Earlier article about him wanting to be a Swan too is here:

    Oops, Brant-Brandon, sounds so similar.

    Sorry.

    Thanks for the article Liz, and thanks to you too Ugg (even though Brant Jack's google statistics jumped significantly after reading your comments! )

    Pretty good of their dad to be supportive of whatever code they choose to do. That's great that he falls within our zone if he continues to develop. Fingers crossed and good luck to him.

    New article in the DT re: Brandon Jack signing up with the Swans Academy

    Will be a different type of player in comparison to KJ, he's taller and slightly built.

    This is my favourite part:

    If anyone wants to have a look at Brandon, he produced an outstanding performance in his second senior match for Pennant Hills against Campbelltown at Blacktown Olympic Park last Sunday, kicking three goals and showing a ton of pace.
    The match will be screened on Main Event Channel 518 tonight, Thursday, at 6.30pm, immediately before the AFL clash between Brisbane Lions St Kilda, and again afterwards at 11.30pm.
    The kid has talent.

    Thanks for the heads up BMR. If he is already playing at senior grade in the SFL, hopefully he might get some games with the Swans reserves team at some point this season.

    Thank you I don't suppose Victorian viewers would be able to see it anywhere would they?

    Only if you have Foxtel or a friend has Foxtel. I'm currently in Melbourne and I'm recording it for later consumption.

    I do have Foxtel but I was of the understanding that AFL coverage on Main Event was only available to NSWelshman and Queenslanders, and Victorians were unable to view it.

    Just checked and the Queensland match of the round on now is unavailable in my area, I doubt it would be different for the NSW game.
