Pick by pick: WA bonanza on draft’s second day

2021-11-25 17:00:00

Day two of the 2021 AFL Draft had a distinctly homegrown feel for Fremantle and West Coast, as almost a dozen young West Australians found a home on an AFL list.

The Dockers further bolstered their midfield stocks by taking a day one slider with the first pick of the day, before adding to it with one of their academy talents later.

Meanwhile West Coast followed their lead and used their two second rounders on a pair of WA boys, before drafting a further two local products in the later rounds – including a mature age recruit with one of the night’s final picks.

All up, 11 sandgropers’ dreams came true on day two, in addition to the four who were drafted yesterday, and with a handful of father-son selections thrown in for good measure, this is how the second day of the draft unfolded.
