Picked up with the 46th selection in the 2013 National Draft, Riley Knight settled into the rigors of professional football quickly, playing all 18 games in 2014 for the Adelaide Crows SANFL side. After finishing second in the Crows SANFL League Club Champion voting, Knight made his AFL debut in 2015 and played the last 11 games of the year, including 2 finals.
A half forward with an elite running ability, Knight can also play in the midfield or as a run with player. He was used in a variety of roles throughout 2017, his best season to date where he played 19 games including the Grand Final.
Injuries have kept Knight on the sidelines for extensive periods so far in his career at the Crows, but when he has got on the park he has shown he has the fitness and ability to match it at the top level.
