The five players Dal Santo would pick first if starting a team from scratch


If you were starting an AFL team from scratch for the 2020 season, who would be your first five draft picks?

Former St Kilda and North Melbourne star midfielder Nick Dal Santo has named his five, picking four on-ballers and a key forward.

He has gone with five superstars with Dustin Martin, Nathan Fyfe, Patrick Cripps, Marcus Bontempelli and Jeremy Cameron.

“In being true to my style, they’re all offensive midfield monsters. (Laying a tackle) is not our problem, we’re trying to win the game, not save it,” Dal Santo told SEN Breakfast.

“If I am starting a football club, they’re my five that I go out and say here’s the chequebook, you write how much you want to earn and for how long and we will tick it off.”

SEN Breakfast co-host Jack Heverin’s five: Marcus Bontempelli, Patrick Cripps, Brodie Grundy, Tom Lynch and Alex Rance.
