SKILLS and fitness were put to the test for more than 100 young footballers during the third day of the AFL Draft Combine in Melbourne.
Seven North Ballarat Rebels and Rooster Dean Towers took part in the handball and clean hands test, kicking and goalkicking assessments and the shuttle run yesterday at Etihad Stadium.
Rebel Jake Neade finished in the top five in the goalkicking test, while teammates Dominic Barry and Louis Herbert performed amongst the best in the country at the kicking assessment.
Barry was also the best-performed Rebel in the shuttle run (beep test), where he recorded a level 14.3.
“The boys performed well. It was very hard conditions, very hot inside Etihad Stadium and the floor was quite slippery as well,” North Ballarat Rebels regional manager Phil Partington said.
Towers was the North Ballarat star on Wednesday, finishing sixth in the 20m sprints and third in the repeat sprints drill.
The AFL Draft Combine concludes today.
