Notable is the absence of South Africa and PNG players. 5 years ago it looked like those two countries would provide the most talent to AFL clubs as international rookies, with some inevitably rising to the senior lists. There were a few South Africans getting lower level experience Down Under and 10 to 20 Papua New Guineans doing the same.

Now I believe there are none on AFL lists and I'm not sure how many playing at lower levels in Australia.

Of course it isn't all about playing in the AFL or in Australia, but that is where the best players get exposed to the highest level every match, every training session, and fast track their talents.
