Gore and Whiteley picked up in AFLW Draft

Gore and Whiteley picked up in AFLW Draft

A pair of Panthers have earned their shot at AFLW football after being selected in today's national draft.

Highly touted midfielder Nikki Gore and hard-nosed defender Lisa Whiteley will get a crack at AFLW level in 2019 after hearing their name called at the draft earlier today.

Panthers junior Gore will remain in South Australia, after being selected by the Adelaide Crows with pick eight, while Whiteley will reunite with Panthers premiership coach Krissie Steen after the GWS Giants called her name at pick 52.

It caps off a remarkable year for 17-year-old Gore, who added a SANFLW premiership and South Adelaide best and fairest to her list of accolades earlier this season.

The tough on baller from Christies Beach averaged a team-high 19.7 disposals while laying 4.7 tackles per game in the Panthers inaugural SANFLW season.

She was also named the Powerade Breakthrough Player for 2018 and selected in the Advertiser SANFLW Team of the Year.

Whiteley joined South from Morphetville Park for their first SANFLW season and quickly established herself as a key piece of the Panthers miserly defence.

The strong-bodied 25-year-old was regularly stationed on the oppositions most damaging forward and played important shut down and rebound roles in the back half of the ground.

By season's end she was awarded the 'Most Ferocious' player award at the clubs best and fairest, as the team's most competitive and fierce defender.

South Adelaide congratulate both girls on achieving their goals of reaching the AFLW and wish them the best as we keep a keen eye on their progress during the season.
