Will Hayward
Club: North Adelaide
Height: 186cm
Weight: 76kg
Position: Forward

The medium-sized forward does his best work inside the forward 50. Kicked eight goals in four games for South Australia at the NAB Under-18 AFL Championships. Enjoyed a stellar season with North Adelaide, booting 33 majors in nine games in the SANFL under-18 competition. Provides good tackling pressure, is quick off the mark and reads the play really well.

What they say:
"Will came on really well late in the year, and his finals series for North Adelaide in the under 18's was quite spectacular as a medium forward. We challenged him in an interview during the year about his endurance and we were pleased to hear that as soon as he left he'd organised a personal trainer. It told us how much he wanted to be drafted." Kinnear Beatson.
