"Pretty exciting time of year, especially when you announce guys playing their first games for the footy club," assistant coach Nathan van Berlo said.

"It’s great for Daws and the two draftees. They havent put a foot wrong all preseason.

"We’ve seen glimpses every training session, they've got an element of poise about them.

"They’re a massive part of our future moving forward."
