The Kangaroos have added to their tall stocks with pick No.2 of the AFL Rookie Draft, selecting Finnbar Maley from the Northern Bullants.
A 197cm youngster with a basketball background, Maley possesses plenty of raw potential that the Kangaroos are keen on developing, whether that be in the forward line, ruck, or a mix of the two.
Maley began to attract interest from recruiters in 2022 when he earned Northern League Division 2 Team of the Year honours after just 14 games with Eltham.
He was then picked up by VFL club Northern Bullants, for whom he featured 13 times this season, before returning to Eltham to play a massive role in the club's finals series.
Maley capped off his season for Eltham with a best-on-ground Grand Final performance, booting six goals to put his name in the AFL National and Rookie Draft mix.
Maley is the sixth player North Melbourne has added to its list over the past three days, following the National Draft selections of Colby McKercher (pick No.2 overall), Zane Duursma (No.4), Taylor Goad (No.20), Wil Dawson (No.22), and Riley Hardeman (No.23).
