LEONGATHA and Gippsland Power defender Kyle Reid capped off a great showing in the under 18 national championships, being named in the under 18 All-Australian team.
Key defender Reid was one of only two players from the winless Vic Country to make the team, alongside midfielder Sam Walsh, who claimed the Larke Medal as the best player of Division 1 after averaging 29 disposals.
Reid will now turn his attention back to the Gippsland Power who are currently sitting second on the TAC cup ladder and will welcome back the return of key players Sam Flanders, Matt McGannon and captain Xavier Duursma.
