Harbrow to play alongside Betts in team DEADLY

  - AFLX,Jarrod Harbrow

Jarrod Harbrow has been handpicked by Eddie Betts for team DEADLY in the upcoming AFLX Tournament. 

The SUNS life member was selected at Pick #8 in Wednesday nights draft, the second overall selection for team DEADLY after Fremantle's Bradley Hill was taken at Pick #1.

The AFLX 2019 Draft was broadcast on Wednesday night with the four team captains each selecting 12 players to fill their teams with some of the best talent in the AFL.

The Draft selection order was determined when one of four numbered and purpose-produced pink AFLX Sherrin footballs were chosen at the beginning of the broadcast.

The pink AFLX Sherrin footballs were numbered one to four, and the choice was given to a representative from each of the AFLX captains nominated charities.

Each team will play for prize money to be donated to the nominated charities.

The AFLX 2019 tournament’s winner will receive $30,000 for their nominated charity, with the Grand Final Runner-up charity receiving $10,000 and the remaining two teams each receiving $5,000 for their charities.

The AFLX captains had a maximum of 30 seconds to make each of their selections with all captains making their selections within the allotted timeframe.

DEADLY captain Eddie Betts’ nominated charity is the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Two representatives, Jessica and Freda, chose the pink AFLX Sherrin football with the number one displayed meaning Betts was able to make the number one selection in the AFLX 2019 Draft.

The AFLX 2019 Draft proceeded with selections in a snake order until selection 48 when all team positions were filled.

A surprise element to the AFLX 2019 Draft saw the captains of the BOLTS, FLYERS and RAMPAGE given a steal card enabling them to pick another team’s player from Round 6 through to the end.
