AFL draft: Jacob van Rooyen achieves first-round goal, heads to reigning premiers Melbourne


Claremont key-position utility Jacob van Rooyen is headed to the reigning premiers after becoming the fourth West Australian taken in the first round when Melbourne took him with pick 19.

Van Rooyen, who has impressed at both ends of the ground this season, had a feeling he could land at the Demons.


“It’s really exciting and hopefully I can be a part of it next year and do it all again,” he said.


“I had an interview with (coach) Simon (Goodwin) and then they called me (Tuesday) night to see how I was going. So I had a suspicion but wasn’t really sure.

“I feel obviously stoked and pumped. It’s really exciting and a dream come true.”
