List of V/AFL All-Australian players from the GVL

By Aydin Payne

Welcome back to the last segment of The News' foray into VFL/AFL players recruited directly from the Goulburn Valley League.

With help from the GVL and its clubs, we kicked things off by delving into the numbers surrounding the list of players that have been recruited.

And last week we highlighted the players from Stanhope, Tatura and Tongala.

Today we list the players from the region who were named All-Australian players.

Out of the nine GVL players to be crowned, only two have been named in the team twice.

We hope you enjoyed seeing the range of recruited players and let the us know if there is anything you would like to see next.
