MELBOURNE’S list for 2019 has now been finalised following the AFL Draft last Friday.

The Demons will have 39 primary listed players and six rookies for the upcoming season.

The club has welcomed a range of new recruits this off-season, bringing in Kade Kolodjashnij, Steven May and Braydon Preuss during the trade period, as well as six fresh faces at the draft.

Melbourne also has two Category B rookies in its squad for 2019, with 204cm ruckman Austin Bradtke and former Big Bash cricketer Guy Walker signing with the red and blue earlier this year.

In further changes to the rookie list, ex-Kangaroo Corey Wagner joined the club via the newly-introduced Pre-Season Supplemental Selection Period, while Corey Maynard has been upgraded to the senior list.
