Diligent in his preparation, Gore showed his durability to play all 21 SANFL matches in his first season as a Crow, averaging 18 disposals a game. Ranked second for the SANFL Crows for tackles (90), and third for clearances (67), inside 50ms (53) and marks (97). The tough midfielder was named an emergency for the Crows’ Round Nine clash with Gold Coast and will be hunting an AFL debut in 2017.
