By Tyler Maher

Following on from last week's deep dive into the numbers surrounding VFL/AFL players recruited directly from Goulburn Valley League, let's look at each club's list of products.

Club members across the region reached out searching for their organisation's individual stars — and The News is happy to accommodate the requests.

With 18 clubs to peruse — as well as the All Australian list — we will split it up into more than one part.
