  Player   Position Biography
 
Brad Hill
FREMANTLE
Midfielder

The Docker's explosive speed and ball skills were showcased during last year's inaugural AFLX tournament and the wingman is one of the players best suited to this format of the game.

 
Jarrod Harbrow
GOLD COAST SUNS
Defender

Harbrow's steadying presence, intensity and run as part of an under-fire defence at the Suns has made him a crucial figure. His experience will be vital in containing opposition attacks in AFLX.

 
Tim Kelly
GEELONG CATS
Midfielder

Showcasing his silky skills and ability to weave in and out of stoppages, the mature-age Cat has developed into one of the Cats' best performing onballers and will thrive in AFLX.

 
Chad Wingard*
HAWTHORN
Forward

The dual All-Australian can be unleashed through the midfield but is also ever-dangerous around goal. Fit, motivated and a fan favourite when on-song, watch for The Chad to use AFLX as a springboard for a massive first year with the Hawks.

 
Travis Varcoe
COLLINGWOOD
Forward

The veteran Collingwood star is dangerous near the big sticks and twice scored the Pies’ first major in last year's finals series. He's a big-game player and the speed of AFLX will suit his game style.

 
Steven May*
MELBOURNE
Defender

May’s pace, aggression and long-kicking from defence make him perfectly suited to AFLX. About to embark on his first season with the Dees, May will look to open 2019 with a splash.

 
Lewis Jetta
WEST COAST EAGLES
Defender

Moved to half-back last year, where Jetta enjoyed arguably his best season since joining West Coast. Breaks lines with his speed and penetrating kicking, making him a dangerousprospect in the AFLX format.

 
Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti
ESSENDON
Forward

The speedy and tenacious small forward is deadly around goal and precise with his kicking but is also an integral member of Essendon's attacking group with his tackling pressure and team-oriented approach.

 
Joel Hamling*
FREMANTLE
Defender

The Dockers defender is rarely beaten despite manning some of the most dangerous key forwards in the competition. Hamling continues to work on adding attacking elements to his game and will suit AFLX.

 
Willie Rioli
WEST COAST EAGLES
Forward

Finally debuted in 2018, enjoying a standout maiden season in which he kicked 28 goals in 24 games. His speed and energy in the forward line make him a valuable asset offensively and defensively, and perfect for AFLX.

 
Sam Powell-Pepper
PORT ADELAIDE
Midfielder

The big-bodied midfielder's ability to burst away from stoppages will be valuable in AFLX's tight spaces. With a huge kick, expect Powell-Pepper to be a candidate for the Gatorade game changer.

 
Cam Ellis-Yolmen
ADELAIDE CROWS
Midfielder

The big-bodied, bullocking mid earned a one-year contract extension after a successful return from a torn ACL that forced him to miss all of 2017. Will provide depth in the clinches.

 
Jade Gresham
ST KILDA
Forward

Named as Steven May's replacement. Gresham has quickly established himself as a reliable goal sneak and will benefit Team Deadly up forward.

 
Jack Martin
GOLD COAST
Midfielder

A late inclusion into the team. The Gold Coast young-gun will be an exciting addition to the team.

 
Nathan Wilson
FREMANTLE
Defender

The dashing defender from West Australia will use his pace to clear the ball out of defence. A handy replacment for fellow Docker Joel Hamling.

*Will miss due to injury
