Lily Hurley impresses in Oz

KILDARE'S Seán Hurley has made a big impression in the Aussie Rules Draft Combine in Melbourne when finishing sixth in the 3km time trial at Etihad stadium, writes Catherine Murphy.

The Kildare teenager had been participating in a four-day assessment, which concluded over the weekend, along with Derry's Emmett Bradley in a bid to win an AFL contract.

Hurley finished in an impressive time of 10 minutes and 17 seconds when coming in sixth of the 114 footballers involved.

The time trial was the last in a gruelling set of tests over the four-day period which included speed, agility, endurance and skills assessment.
