The second national draft was arguably the weakest ever. The number one selection, the much derided Richard Lounder, played four games for Richmond and Brisbane used pick 2 on a player (Chris McDermott) who refused to play for them. Of the top twenty selections only Graham Wright (selection 3) and Stuart Wigney (selection 20) became household names.
