Albury has posted its best AFL draft results.

For the first time in the event’s 24-year history, the O and M powerhouse will have four players at elite level clubs.

Will Setterfield was picked at number five by Greater Western Sydney in Friday night’s draft, while Lachie Tiziani also joined the Giants at 54.

Zach Sproule and Max Lynch then followed in the rookie draft, to GWS and Collingwood respectively.

‘It’s a great wrap for the club, I’m absolutely pumped,” Tigers’ coach Shaun Daly said.

“The last few years we’ve had eight Murray Bushrangers, and we try and develop them as much as we can.”

Tiziani played a number of senior games last year, but was restricted to only one last season, while Tigers’ premiership player Sproule and Lynch didn’t play seniors last season.

“The Bushies are a very professionally run club and they help the young guys around their age train a little more professionally,” Daly said.
