Vic Metro v Vic Country Under-18 trial matches: All the Supercoach scores from the two hit contests

There were some stunning performances in the two trial matches between Vic Metro and Vic Country — check out all the Supercoach scores and full stats from the standout players.

St Kilda Next Generation Academy product Cam MacKenzie has continued his rapid rise up AFL club draft boards with a standout performance in a trial match for Vic Metro.

MacKenzie was in everything in the first match between Vic Metro and Vic Country at Werribee on Sunday, racking up disposals and clearances at will through the midfield.

The 187cm onballer showed good speed and a willingness to take the game on and break the lines, as well as a clean pair of hands both above his head and below his knees.

He also floated forward to kick one goal in the opening quarter.

Hailing from the Sandringham Dragons, MacKenzie started the NAB League season in sizzling fashion and has gone on to impress in school football with Brighton Grammar.

“He’s one that we just didn’t quite know where he sat at the start of pre-season and turned into a really strong midfield player and he’s taken that level to school football too at Brighton,” Dragons talent manager Mark Wheeler told News Corp last week.

“He’s a first-round pick now. We don’t say that too much, but we think that’s where he’s tracking. He’s damaging with the ball now and he’s starting to show his body strength and his footy now.”

MacKenzie’s rise is bad news for the Saints, who will be unable to match a bid on the 18-year-old if he falls within the top 40 protected picks on draft night later.

Another Dragons’ bolter – Charlie Clark – also put his hand up for a spot in the final Vic Metro squad for the AFL under-18 national championships in the same game.

Clark, who kicked seven goals against Tasmania in just his 4th NAB League match this year, spent time as a half-forward and through the midfield for Vic Metro.

Standing 182cm, Clark has good breakaway speed from the contest and classy foots skills.

He booted two second-half goals.

“His energy around the ball as is probably AFL-like, VFL-like at this stage as well,” Wheeler said.

“If someone’s looking for very defensive small forward, I wouldn’t be looking too far past him. He’s one we’re pretty happy with at the moment.”

Toby McMullin impressed up forward.

Gippsland Power forward Archer Reid saw his stocks rise with a big game for Vic Country during the first trial match.

The brother of developing Essendon defender Zach Reid, the 201cm key forward booted three goals and took some big contested marks.

A mobile and athletic big man, he worked hard up the ground and produced some strong leads.

Making the performance even more impressive, Reid is a bottom-age player who is not draft eligible until next year.

Sandringham Dragons forward Toby McMullin — who hails from Port Fairy but is boarding at Melbourne Grammar — also kicked three goals for Vic Country, playing a key role in the forward line alongside Reid.

AFL Academy member Luke Teal was another standout for Vic Metro in defence across the backline.

The second trial match was dominated by a pair of small forwards in Nick Watson and Jacob Konstanty, who each booted four goals.

From the Gippsland Power, Konstanty kicked some brilliant goals for Vic Country, including two in the space of just a few minutes during the third quarter.

An Eastern Ranges product, Watson is another bottom-age player who is not eligible until the 2023 draft but stamped himself as a top player to watch for next year with his performance.

The small forward is a difficult match up and a good mark for his size at just 169cm, while also having a freakish goal sense.

Essendon father-son product Alwyn Davey also featured for Vic Metro in the second game, playing primarily through the midfield.

The son of former Bomber Alwyn Davey, the classy Oakleigh Chargers product showed some good skills and line-breaking ability, while also being involved in some score assists as he hit up teammates on the lead inside-50 on multiple occasions.
