Dandenong Southern Stingrays VIC COUNTRY U16s players bio:
Hunter Clark - A hard running backman, who’s silky skills at time mask his uncompromising attack on the footy. Strong in the air and a beautiful kick on both sides of his body. Hunter will play through a number of roles in the back line, including playing tall when required. A player to watch with a great all round game.
Aaron Darling - a mature bodied player who is relentless in his attack on the ball and opposition. Extremely clever and knows how to find the ball and move it on quickly, expect him at the bottom of every contest. Aaron has great penetration on his kicks and will look to break the lines as a midfielder. His leadership and faultless attitude will enable him to provide a great example for those around him.
Luke Davies-Uniacke - big, strong, quick and clean. Since the completion of the U16 carnival in Bendigo Luke has worked extremely hard and is improving his game every time he takes the field. He has exceptional ability to win the ball in close and then exit the contest at speed, using his quick feet and side step to set up those around him. Definitely a player to watch, who has captained the side during their warm up games and final trial game against Metro 16’s.
Jake Frawley - tough and uncomprisimising in his approach, a defender who can compete above his size due to his willingness to commit body to the contest. Jake has improved immensely and is learning to be offensive, running hard to create for teammates making him a challenging opponent for any forward. Jake will be ‘Mr. Fix It’ playing a range of roles to assist the team.
Angus Paterson - a developing tall at 195cm, who can play either in the ruck or down back. His ability to learn and improve has only enhanced his impressive versatility. Angus will generally ply his trade as a tall mobile ruckman, whose running ability will enable him to cover to the ground to support his teammates. At times Angus will be called onto play in the back 6 and is developing a great understanding of how to play as a key defender.
