Drafted from: Geelong Falcons
DOB: 12 June 1998 (18)
Sean Darcy is a ruckman from Camperdown, Victoria.
Darcy boarded at Xavier College in Melbourne and faced of a lot of travel while combining his school footy with his Geelong Falcons footy in the TAC Cup.
Performing well at both levels, Darcy was soon representing Vic Country and shining at the U18 Championships.
While Darcy possesses terrific physical strength and competitiveness to match, it was his craft and touch that was most impressive in his ruck work and he regularly fed his midfield brigade, giving his on-ballers first class service out of the middle.
THE young ruckman they liken to Shane Mumford may have just played his way onto an AFL list after a dominant national under-18 championships.
Sean Darcy’s draft stocks have risen sharply after his decisive tap work was on display for Vic Country against the country’s best emerging ruck prospects.
The Geelong Falcons’ 201cm product is an old-fashioned big-bodied ruckman with an aggressive streak, drawing instant comparisons with Mumford.
While his potential has long been known, the 18-year-old only has limited opportunities at TAC Cup level because of his overriding footy commitments with Xavier College.
