Less than a month away from the opening game of the 2024 AFL season, clubs are beginning to get a strong idea of how they'll line-up to start the new premiership race.
With the early stages of the season comes plenty of debuts, with top draftees, second-year talents and long-serving sidemen eager to get their first taste of AFL action.
Every club is likely to blood new names this year, with some expected and others to come from the clouds for what will be a memorable occasion in their careers.
We've looked at the first-year rookies and those still waiting for a debut at each club to identify which players have the best chance of playing their maiden AFL match in 2024.
Most likely to debut in 2024: Star draftee Dan Curtin looms as a lock to be in Matthew Nicks' plans this year, with the ready-made key position talent likely to slot into a defensive role and hopefully mirror the output Max Michalaney showed last year. Another first-year name in Charlie Edwards could be a smokey but he isn't expected to get a look early into the season. Zac Taylor is entering his third season and will be keen to break into the senior side after dealing with injuries across his time at West Lakes so far.
