Oscar Clavarino becomes a Panther

5 November 2021

Oscar Clavarino marches to Noarlunga.

The tall defender who was taken at pick 35 of the 2017 National Draft will take his services to the Panthers in 2022. 

Having a couple of injury setbacks, the perseverance of the 22-year old paid off when after 1283 days since being drafted he would make his AFL debut in round 11 2021 for the Saints against North Melbourne. 

He would go on to play a further 5 game for St. Kilda in 2021. 

Oscar is a reliable intercept defender that can read well the play and is strong overhead.

Growing up in the South of Melbourne, he played his junior footy for Berwick FC before moving to APS school Haileybury College.

Senior Coach Jarrad Wright is looking forward to what Oscar will bring to the Panthers in 2022.

"Oscar will be able to bring some additional height to our backline and combined with his aerial ability will strengthen our defence" Said Senior Coach Jarrad Wright

"At 195cm Oscar will be a good replacement for Sam Skinner, and bolster our experienced backline with the likes of Jake Summerton, Matt Broadbent and Joey Haines."
