    There is plenty to watch, with eight rounds and 96 selections just waiting to happen. The Brisbane Lions have the first pick, and Cam Rayner, Andrew Brayshaw, Luke Davies-Uniacke and Paddy Dow are the names to watch at the top of the draft.

    Next week, the NAB AFL Pre-season and Rookie Drafts will be held from 5pm AEDT on Monday, November 27 at the same time. These aren’t quite as exciting, but still worth keeping an eye on.

    Following the drafts, clubs will need to submit their final lists for the 2018 season by Wednesday, November 29.

    Here’s how to catch Friday’s draft live, whether you’re watching it on TV at home or streaming it while on the go.


    There’s one way to get the event on TV. You can find the draft airing on Fox Footy, and to watch this content on channel 504, you will need a valid Foxtel subscription with sports access.

    Coverage will begin with the combine and the draft preview at 5:30pm, and will run until 9:30pm.

    Live stream

    You have a couple options when it comes to streaming the draft on your tablets or other mobile devices.

    You can stream the event through the AFL Live official app with the AFL Live Pass. This a paid service, but Telstra mobile customers can get free access, and there’s also a two-week free trial available.
