Delisted Kangaroo Majak Daw is hoping to secure a lifeline from an AFL club to continue his career in 2021.
The swingman’s manager Adam Ramanauskas told the Herald Sun that he was was prepared to spend the summer training with a club to prove himself worthy of a vacant rookie-list spot.
There has not been any significant interest in the 29-year old yet but clubs are still assessing list spots for next season.
However, if a team looking to add a key position prospect through the draft misses out, they could turn their attention to Daw.
Clubs are free to sign delisted free agents from Thursday until the following day before the first list lodgements on November 30.
There will then be a second delisted player free agency period from December 1 until the following day.
The national draft is set to be held on December 9 and the AFL confirmed earlier this month that the supplementary selection period will run again from January 6.
This allows players to audition for a spot on a list until the start of the season and take part in training, intra-club and practice matches and the Marsh Community Series.
Daw was used as a ruckman and forward this year but his preference is to play defence, where he had a career-best season in 2018.
A torn pectoral muscle delayed his AFL return in 2020 and he made just four senior appearances.
Daw was one of 11 Kangaroos axed at the end of the season in a savage list cull following the club’s disappointing campaign.
