Following an impressive run in the VFL last weekend, the 19-year-old has earned the call-up and will become the Magpies’ fourth debutant of the 2021 season.

An elite athlete, Rantall is sure to add plenty of speed and run for the Magpies as they look for their second win of the season.
Buckley notified Rantall of his inclusion on Thursday.
“When I’ve observed you over the last four to six weeks, I see a kid who has a smile on his face, who is more settled in his own skin and we’re seeing that translate into your training and playing performances,” Buckley said, per the club’s website.
“Your strengths are going to be important for us. You get up and down ground insistently and you’ll do it for four quarters.”
