AFLX will be a game of one-on-ones.  Speed and endurance will also be a big factor - Luke, Royal Park.

I think you'll want speed and skill for this format; play a majority of younger, up and coming players - Tobias, Sellicks Beach.

Good skills, pace, endurance, youth - Matthew, Old Reynella

Play good ball handlers who can kick accurately and long, and who also have a bit of X Factor - Peter, Littlehampton

My criteria were speed, the ability to defend and kick 10 pointers running out of defence, along with a mix of goal kicking opportunists - Lawrie, North Plympton

A good mix of leadership, size, skill, toughness and athleticism - Gus, Flinders Park.

AFLX launches on Thursday, February 15, with Adelaide taking on West Coast and Collingwood at Hindmarsh Stadium.
