St Kilda has recruited rebounding defender Oscar Clavarino with pick No. 35 in Friday night's NAB AFL Draft

St Kilda has recruited Dandenong Stingrays rebounding defender Oscar Clavarino with pick No. 35 in the Friday night's NAB AFL Draft in Sydney.

After Richmond matched the Saints' bid for Victorian midfielder Patrick Naish - the son of former Tiger Chris - St Kilda chose Clavarino with their third pick, after earlier selecting Stingrays midfielder Hunter Clark at No. 7 and Northern Knights half-back Nick Coffield at No. 8.

Clavarino was rewarded for his dominant national carnival with selection at full back in the under-18 All-Australian team, with new teammate Coffield also named in the same back six at half-back.

Renowned for his ability to read the game quicker than others and for his clean skills by foot, Clavarino represented Vic Country in seven games across the last two seasons.

Standing at 196cm, Clavarino is built like a key position player but established himself as one of the most damaging rebounding defenders in the TAC Cup this season.
