Potential No.1 pick impresses at NAB League testing day

By Callum Twomey

TALENTED Oakleigh Chargers midfielder and likely early draft pick George Wardlaw impressed at the recent NAB League testing, showing his power to add to his ball-winning prowess.

Wardlaw will play for the Chargers on Sunday in the opening round of the NAB League competition against the Sandringham Dragons and starts the campaign as a leading contender for the No.1 pick.

He enhanced his reputation during the pre-season testing day in March, coming in second in the running vertical jump (101cm) and standing vertical jump (83cm) tests.

Wardlaw impressed last season in Vic Metro's under-17s side and also in his appearances for the Chargers as a bottom-ager.

Calder Cannons prospect Rye Penny was a standout across the athletic testing, running a scintillating 2.83-second 20-metre sprint and also winning the standing and vertical jumps tests.

Potential top-10 picks Oliver Hollands and Harry Sheezel were amongst the best performers in the Yo-Yo endurance test, while another possible first-round selection Brayden George was inside the top-10 in the running vertical jump.

Max Dow, the younger brother of Carlton's Paddy and Richmond's Thomson, made his mark on the testing with top-10 results in the running vertical jump, standing vertical jump and agility tests.
