Adelaide Crows star Rory Sloane sinking his teeth into mouthguards
CROWS crowd favourite Rory Sloane has expanded his involvement in junior football after signing up as an ambassador for Gameday Mouthguards alongside dual Brownlow Medallist Gary Ablett.
Sloane, who has already been involved as an Auskick ambassador for five years, said it was a natural extension to his passion of keeping children active and safe and promote the game.
He urged all children to wear mouthguards and has now added another two to his collection: the one with a Batman motif and a traditional tricolour one.
Sloane shared his thoughts on the various choices of mouthguards among AFL players.
WHITE (considered ideal for best and fairest votes)
“I wear a white one and that wasn’t my intention. White just looks like teeth. If I wore a black one it’d look like I’ve got no teeth.”
BLACK (considered ideal for intimidating)
“Maybe it’s too look a bit tougher. I wear black boots and that’s my theory on that; I’ve always worn black boots.”
CLUB COLOURS (passionate)
“Ultimate club men. Passion.”
“A few guys wear the indigenous ones. That’s pride in their heritage and where they’ve grown up.”
“A couple of people have the gap tooth. I’m bringing out a range that’s meant to be fun and to take the mickey out of myself, like the Batman one. Another one I want to do is a smiley one, which could look a bit funny.”
