SIX Murray Bushrangers have been invited to take part in state draft combines in October.

Doulton Langlands, Alex Paech, Jy Lane and Daniel Johnston will test in the NSW combine on October 6 while Laitham Vandermeer and Tom Boyd have been nominated for Victoria.

The state combine selection requires a minimum of two AFL clubs to express interest in a player.

Ben Paton, Jordan Butts, Harry Jones and Charlie Spargo have already been invited to test at the AFL combine from October 3 to 6.

That means a minimum of five clubs have expressed interest in them.

The combine tests a range of skills including standing vertical leap, running vertical leap, 20 metre sprint, agility testing, 6 x 30m repeat sprint, the 20 metre shuttle run or beep test.

Cobram’s Esava Ratugolea posted a 76cm in the standing vertical jump in 2016 while Albury’s Lachie Tiziani reached 97cm in the running vertical leap.
