The Geelong Cats are set to throw 2016’s first draft selection into their side that will face off against Hawthorn in the clubs first match of the pre season competition.

The club holds the 18 year old Brandon Parfitt (pictured)  in such high regard that he will make his Cats debut wearing the No. 3 guernsey worn with such distinction by 300 gamer Jimmy Bartel.

Parfitt says while he’s not feeling the nerves yet, he’s confident that he’ll find plenty of support at the feet of the Cats big men in the forward line.
