Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: -

Junior Club: Claremont (WA)
Draft History:
  2017 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Gold Coast) No. 19 overall.

Considered one of the biggest bolters in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, Wil Powell is an exciting prospect who can play as an inside or outside midfielder. Despite not making the WA under-18 team in 2017, it was Powell’s prominent performances for Claremont’s Colts team which saw him selected by the SUNS with pick no. 19.

In his short time with the club so far, Powell has impressed both teammates and coaching staff with his attitude and intensity at training. Noted for his elite running capacity, Powell was a standout in the 2km time trial during preseason.
