Adelaide co-captain Rory Sloane will line up for Jack Riewoldt's Rampage team after being selected with pick No. 5 in Wednesday night’s AFLX draft.

Sloane became the fourth member of Riewoldt’s side, behind vice-captain Patrick Cripps from Carlton and pick No. 4 Lachie Whitfield from Greater Western Sydney.

 

Fellow Crow Rory Laird joined the Flyers team when captain Nat Fyfe selected the dual All Australian with pick No. 22.

With his final pick in the draft, Eddie Betts selected Crows teammate Cam Ellis-Yolmen to join his Indigenous team, Deadly, with pick No. 48.

The midfielder will play AFLX for the second consecutive year, after he was a member of the Adelaide side who took out the trophy in 2018.

As for the starting line-ups, Betts revealed he would play Ellis-Yolmen in the ruck.

The AFLX competition will take place at Marvel Stadium on February, 22 from 7pm AEDT.
