Izak Rankine Named in AFL U18 All-Australian Team
Published on: Jul 06 2018 | Author: westadelaidefc |
Congratulations to WAFC’s own Izak Rankine on being one of six McDonald’s SA Under-18 players to have been selected in the AFL All-Australian team, after South Australia claimed the 2018 crown with an undefeated run at this year’s National Championships.
Izak was not surprisingly named in attack, after booting 5.2 in the title-decider against Victoria Metro on Wednesday.
It is Izak’s second All-Australian jumper after he earned selection last year as a 17-year-old.
AFL Talent Ambassador Kevin Sheehan headed the selection panel which included:
Luke Power NAB AFL Academy Head Coach
Marcus Ashcroft AFL Talent Competitions and Operations
Dom Milesi Recruiting Manager, Collingwood Football Club
Troy Selwood Recruiting Manager, Geelong Football Club
Luke Williams Recruiting Officer, Richmond Football Club
Chris Liberatore Recruiting Manager, St Kilda Football Club
