With its first pick in the 2019 AFL Draft, Collingwood has chosen Jay Rantall from South Warrnambool.
Rantall is a medium midfielder who continued to develop and progress throughout the year.
Switching back to AFL after representing Australia in basketball at last year’s World Cup in Argentina, his work rate, clean hands and creativity with the ball were all features of his game.
In 12 NAB League games for the GWV Rebels he averaged 24.9 disposals and played for Vic Country in the 2019 NAB AFL Under-18 Championships, averaged 18.8 disposals and 3.5 tackles.
