There's some interesting names amongst this list announced today and apart from Jesse Motlop(son of Daniel), the one which really caught my notice was William Wolf, son of Clinton, a developing ruckman at Claremont. Does anyone have any info on young Will. Maybe Biz may have some info on Clinton's young fella and his future prospects.

Unfortunately with the lack of national carnivals and a shortened covid season last year, I haven't seen much of this group of kids. There's games here and there floating about for the bigger names like Motlop but otherwise, I don't know a lot until footy starts this year.
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.

That brings back memories. I fondly think of Clinton as falling into the Clive category of former players. We didn’t see much of him but he provided some entertaining moments.

Found a write up on the Tigers website from August last year when Wolf Jr was picked in the State Under 16's. A Scotch College boy. Claremont's talent manager Jordan Smith says "the son of CFC Past Player Clinton Wolf, a 200cm ruckman with elite speed for his size and terrific competitiveness." Possibly a rookie pick up in the next couple of years?
Also mentioned in this article is fellow Next Gen member Dallas McAdam, brother of Shane and another son of a former player Edward Allen, son of Ben.
Sorry I can't do the clicky link thing, it's dated August 21st 2020 on Claremont website.
