PORT Adelaide legend Warren Tredrea has been appointed as an All Australian selector, AFL general manager of football operations Mark Evans confirmed on Wednesday.

Tredrea, who was inducted into the AFL Hall Of Fame last month, takes the place vacated by Mark Ricciuto. 

Ricciuto resigned from his position on the committee to joint the Adelaide Crows' board. 

The nine-man All Australian selection panel consists of Gillon McLachlan (chairman), Kevin Bartlett, Luke Darcy, Evans, Danny Frawley, Glen Jakovich, Cameron Ling, Matthew Richardson and Tredrea.

The panel, along with Kevin Sheehan, also chooses the winner of the NAB AFL Rising Star Award.
