FOUR Drafted in 2015, two rookies!

Six Northern Knights players have found new AFL homes over the past week by being selected in the 2015 NAB AFL Draft.

Jade Gresham was the first to be selected from Preston City Oval as he was taken with the 18th pick by St Kilda.

Two picks later, midfielder Brayden Fiorini booked his flights to the sunny Gold Coast after being selected with the 20th pick by the Suns.

Draft bolter Brayden Sier was taken with Collingwood's first pick at number 32. Sier played only two games with the Northern Knights after having a standout year for Marcellin in the AGSV Schools competition.

Finally with the 51st pick in the draft, the Sydney Swans selected running defender Tyrone Leonardis, bringing the total Knights' players selected at the 2015 National Draft to four.

Two more players were selected at the 2015 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

Darcy MacPherson joined teammate Brayden Fiorini up north with the Gold Coast Suns, whilst former Knight's Best and Fairest winner from 2010 Adam Marcon after persisting with VFL and not giving up on his dream, was selected by the Richmond Football Club.
