Rory Sloane was drafted to Adelaide in 2008 from TAC Cup side, Eastern Ranges, and quickly became a fan favourite. He won his first Club Champion award in 2013. His second Club Champion Award in 2016 came in a dominant year where he was also named All Australian vice-captain, AFLPA MVP runner-up, AFLCA Player of the Year runner-up, and finished fourth in the Brownlow with 24 votes.
The accolades continued to come for the selfless player in 2017, when he was voted AFLPA Most Courageous Player and received an All Australian nomination. Sloane had an injury-interrupted 2018 but gave fans plenty to cheer about when he signed a new five-year deal.
Ahead of the 2019 season he was named co-captain alongside Taylor Walker, having previously acted as an alternating captain with Patrick Dangerfield in 2014 while Nathan van Berlo was injured. Following one season as co-captains, Walker stepped down and Sloane carried the mantle on his own into 2020.
