Richmond #10 - Jacob Bauer - Former Sydney Academy prospect. Having a big year in the SANFL as a medium-tall, high flying marking forward who has been hitting the scoreboard at a high rate. Big improver

Jacob Bauer is one of the best kids I know of. His mother used to work with me and we would go to Swans games together. His Dad is from The Rock and was a good SFL player. Footy mad family from the inner west.
We could do much worse and not many better.

Bauer becomes a Tiger via Mid-Season Draft

Tall forward Jacob Bauer has joined Richmond via the Mid-Season Rookie Draft.

By Richmond Media
1 June 2022 7:30pm


Richmond has selected tall forward Jacob Bauer from North Adelaide with pick No. 10 in tonight's AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft.

The 19-year-old comes to the Tigers after playing six games in the SANFL this season, where he kicked 16 goals and averaged nine disposals and five score involvements per game.

Here's what the Richmond recruiters say about Bauer...

"Jacob was part of the Sydney Swans Junior Academy in 2020-21. While showing talent, he struggled for continuity in his football given the challenges COVID-19 presented. He then decided it would be best for his game to move to South Australia this year and play with North Adelaide in the SANFL. After earning a league game in Round 9, Jacob has not looked back, kicking 16 goals in his six senior games playing as a mobile tall forward. His strong aerial ability combined with ability to cover ground make him a difficult match-up.

"We believe that Jacob has considerable potential given his rapid rise this year. He has a terrific attitude and will greatly benefit from working with our coaches and experienced forward group."

Credit where it's due. Mitch Cleary was on the money.


Jacob Bauer

Bauer was overlooked by Sydney during last year's draft process, having graduated from the club’s Academy system. He has since moved to North Adelaide, and into the forward line, where he's had an immediate impact with his athleticism and high-leaping marking ability. The 191cm forward kicked 13 goals from his first three SANFL games, with clubs noting some strong AFL attributes particularly in the air. Still just 19, and still adjusting to his new position in attack, clubs believe there is plenty of growth remaining in his game.

North Adelaide forward Jacob Bauer tipped to be a certain selection in AFL mid-season draft

News.com.au
25 May 2022


A high-flying prospect from NSW capable of playing at both ends of the ground shapes as a certain selection in next week’s AFL mid-season draft.

Jacob Bauer went undrafted last year out of the Swans’ Academy but has piqued the interest of at least six AFL clubs with a blistering start to the SANFL season for North Adelaide.

The 19-year-old is one of 14 prospects who will undergo medical testing ahead of the June 1 draft, with players requiring multiple clubs to nominate them.

Most of that group is tipped to find an AFL home on Wednesday week.

Bauer has requested an 18-month contract if he is drafted, which would take him through to the end of the 2023 season.

It’s believed both Sydney clubs – the Giants and Swans – Collingwood, Essendon, Richmond and Carlton are all showing interest in the 191cm swingman, who’s kicked 15 goals in five senior games this year.

Bauer’s averaging nine disposals, almost three marks inside 50 and five score involvements per game.

After the teenager starred down back in a pre-season trial game against the Crows’ reserves then started the season in the reserves, the Roosters swung him forward with great effect.

The only match Bauer’s missed since was because of a concussion.

Among his 15 goals were consecutive bags of five, with his North Adelaide coach Jacob Surjan, who played 121 AFL games for Port Adelaide, saying he had matured with his move from Sydney to Adelaide.

The knock on Bauer from clubland is his ground-ball and contested work, but Surjan said he was already showing improvement.

“He has a great ability to mark the ball and read the flight of the ball in the air. He’s really competitive as well and he’s a beautiful set shot,” Surjan told News Corp.

“He knows the areas of the game that he needs to get better at, but he’s got a lot of things that AFL clubs need and like.

“I don’t think he needs to get bigger, but he just needs to get stronger in his body and with his contest, and if he gets into an AFL environment, he’s got plenty of time for that.”

As opposed to other state league coaches who have been disgruntled about losing promising players during a season, Surjan could not be happier for Bauer.

North Adelaide has targeted Sydney as a fertile recruiting ground but Bauer actually contacted the club after seeing some of his peers head there.

“I’m going to be very excited if Jacob is potentially the first development kid drafted through the mid-season draft from North Adelaide,” he said.

“Part of our job is obviously to win premierships at our club, but we still know that we’re a feeder competition to the AFL and we need to try to develop kids to try and get into the AFL as quickly as possible.

“Jacob’s development in the last little bit has been great. He’s very driven, he wants to get the best out of himself and he’s a really humble kid.”

At the very least he will provide a good focal point for the VFL team. 
Good luck.
