Rory Sloane (born 17 March 1990) is an Australian rules footballer who currently plays for the Adelaide Crows in the Australian Football League (AFL). Originally from Victoria, Sloane was first part of TAC Cup side Eastern Ranges U/18s side when he was only 16. He went on to captain Eastern Ranges in 2008 and excelled at in-close play and demonstrated an ability to play at either end of the ground. He was drafted by Adelaide with pick Number 44 in the 2008 AFL Draft. He debuted in the senior side in Round 20, 2009 with a solid effort against Hawthorn. Adelaide coach Neil Craig said before his debut that "He'll be an exciting player for us in the future…our supporters will like Rory Sloane."[1]

Sloane played his second game in Round 1, 2010, but sustained a serious ankle injury during the clash against Fremantle which saw him out of the side for several weeks.

2012[edit]

Sloane is currently a major part of the Crows' new game plan. In the last quarter of Round 10 he helped the Crows respond to a resurgent Fremantle side to win by 29 points. With Patrick Dangerfield he managed 32 disposals and kicked three goals. On 4 June, he revealed he had signed a three year deal with the Crows; "The way Brenton [Sanderson] and the rest of the coaching staff have gone about creating this really enjoyable environment for us to be involved in - I think that's a big reason why everyone wants to stay around."[2]
