    Great, Tallulah is in the academy, the other girls I listed were in publicity at the launch back in 2017 so none of them may actually be in it (yet).

    I look forward to Eddie explaining to us why that is unfair.

    Think your right Blood Fever. Found this VFL Zoning Metro map which seems to validate all these 3 zones on top of our country Riverina zone:
    Old Melbourne Metro VFL Zones : AFL

    Also found this interesting Age article from 2015 which has a retrospective look at the old VFL zones:

    Billy Lloyd Jake's older brother is playing at Port Melbourne this year.
    I haven't had a chance to see him play yet but from all reports he is a good player.
    Don't you always here when there is brothers playing watch out for the young brother he is best.

    Scott Selwood, Shaun McKernan, Shane Harvey say "not always".

    Great research Keep South! John Heriot may have been from there. Could be wrong.

    I grew up and played in the Upper Murray FL which was predominantly a Victorian league and we were in South's zone. It included Tumbarumba and Tumut in those days as well from NSW. As a result growing up we received a couple of visits from Mark Browning and other players taking clinics at school. The only player from our league that played at senior level was Dennis Carroll in my time. He only had one year at Tumbarumba as he was working in the bank there.

    I have an old country zone map but can't work out how to paste it on here. If anyone knows how PM me and I'll send it to you.
    I FEEL THE NEED FOR SPEED!!!!!

    Not wrong! Also the late Fred Goldsmith. I often saw the two of them sitting together at Swans games in Melbourne. Looked like great mates. Heriot the Swans fullback of the century. Goldsmith the only fullback to win a Brownlow, but on the bench in the team of the century.

    By coincidence Dennis Carroll features on the Swans web site having made his senior debut on this day 37 years ago:
