Gippsland's Caleb and Sam go first in AFL National Draft
Two Gippsland Power players are heading interstate after the first round of the AFL National Draft.
Caleb Serong of Warragul was selected at pick 8 by the Fremantle Dockers.
A short time later the Gold Coast Suns snapped up Moe boy Sam Flanders at pick 11, after a brilliant year with Power and with Vic Country.
"Some of those games, even in the Australian team, playing against the bigger bodies helped me a bit to come in," Sam said last night at Marvel Stadium, speaking to TRFM and Gippsland's Gold.
Sam was one of a number of Draft prospects to come from Lowanna College, Moe.
"Lowanna College, they've done an amazing job getting us boys in, and Moe Football Club as well."
