    All rookie listed players are overlooked in the draft.

    Not strictly correct. Under some circumstances players can be put directly onto a rookie list without ever being available through the rookie draft. International and NSW scholarship players (soon to be defunct) are the main categories. Indeed, the only ones I can think of.

    Also players who have not been registered as a player at any Aussie Rules club for 3 years can be directly rookie listed.....don't Collingwood have a Queensland basketballer that they did that with?

    Almost certain there was a thread about Perris being a scholarship holder and eligible for the Swans but ONLY if we took him in the ND.....Swans, GWS, Lions and GC can all do this with ONE player per year.....possibly subject to bidding system like father-son.

    Actually amazing what google can do

    "Not many eighteen year olds have the resume that St George?s Lloyd Perris does. Perris is an AIS/AFL Academy member, winner of the Cameron Ling and Ben Mitchell medals, an All Australian team member and NSW/ACT MVP. There is a reason why he is being touted as the steal of the draft, as the Sydney Swans can pick him up with their last draft pick as he is a Swans scholarship holder. He has all of the qualities you want from a midfielder and the Swans can take him at the end of the draft. That sounds like a steal to me."

    As a scholarship player, the club could put Perris straight onto the rookie list but he has to agree to this. I think it is likely they will put him straight onto the senior list, as they did with Bird all those years ago.

    Yes, he'll probably be playing on Tippett tomorrow.
