With pick two in the 2020 Rookie Draft, North Melbourne has selected Patrick Walker.
Walker joins the club from North Hobart, where earned AFL Academy recognition after an eye-catching bottom-age campaign, where he played 16 games in Tasmania’s inaugural full-time NAB League season.
Able to play at half-back or on the wing, Walker is a strong kick and decision maker.
“Patrick has had some exposure to open-age football with North Hobart in 2020,” National Recruiting Manager, Mark Finnigan said.
“He is a skilful half back/wing type who can carry the ball and penetrate the game with his foot skills.
“We feel he has a lot of future development potential.”
