Keegan Brooksby to pursue AFL opportunity

Keegan Brooksby to pursue AFL opportunity

South Adelaide can reveal that ruckman Keegan Brooksby will pursue an AFL opportunity in 2019.

Brooksby's management has informed the club that he has been offered another chance at the AFL via the newly revamped rookie rules.

Previously-listed AFL players who have spent a season or greater away from an AFL list no longer need to be selected through the draft to find an AFL lifeline.

These players can now sign with a club of their choice during the pre-season supplemental selection period (SPP) between December 1 and March 15.

This will be Brooksby's second crack at the AFL, having played 14 games with the Gold Coast Suns between 2015 and 2017.

The Panthers skipper enjoyed a stellar 2018 SANFL season, playing all 19 games, finishing second in Knuckey Cup voting and being selected as captain of the 2018 Advertiser Team of the Year.

"It is very exciting for Keegan to get another chance to prove himself at the highest level," said Panthers Chief Executive Officer, Neill Sharpe.

"He is an outstanding player and his form over the last season speaks for itself.

"He certainly deserves this opportunity and we wish him well in the next phase of his AFL career."
