DAY two of the AFL’s national draft combine saw North Ballarat Rebels players Louis Herbert, Sam Bennett, Matt Crouch and Dallas Willsmore put through the last of their medical tests and begin the ever-important physical examinations.
The quartet gave any potential AFL suitors one last chance to examine their physiques to check for impacts of previous injuries yesterday morning, before they went through several drills to measure their speed and agility levels.
“The boys are definitely a lot more comfortable now than what they were on the first day, and they know what the routine is and what’s expected of them,” North Ballarat Rebels talent manager Phil Partington said.
“They all have different attributes, whether it be speed, endurance, agility or footy smarts and I think we’ll see a range of good performances over the next few days.”
The quartet went through the 20-metre sprint drill, 30-metre repeat sprints and agility test yesterday and will undertake the beep test and a range of crucial skills tests including the Matthew Lloyd clean hands test and the Nathan Buckley kicking test today.
