Game Chat – Port v Adelaide

Written by Motts on March 21 2015

PORT ADELAIDE has named its strongest available side for its NAB Challenge finale against the Adelaide Crows at AAMI Stadium today.

Captain Travis Boak, deputies Matthew Lobbe and Brad Ebert, and fellow leadership players Ollie Wines and Tom Jonas return to the side, along with key position players Alipate Carlile, Justin Westhoff and Jay Schulz.

Livewire midfielder Robbie Gray and veteran Kane Cornes also rejoin the team, along with Jarman Impey who has been cleared to return from minor hamstring soreness.

A range of inexperienced players will come out of the side and are likely to play in the early-Saturday SANFL trial game against the Crows at Alberton Oval, including Mitch Harvey, Dougal Howard, Darcy Byrne-Jones, Jesse Palmer, Johann Wagner and Sam Russell. 

Experienced rookies Tom Logan and Nathan Krakouer also come out of the AFL side, as does Andrew Moore who will be held over after suffering a corked hamstring against Richmond last week. 

Would love to tell you more about The Cows but there’s bugger all on their website.

  2. Propped myself on the balcony to watch this game. Even a pracky match between these two will be a tough hit out. Got my eye on crouch and dangermouse. Good start by the latter!!


  3. Cey and Graymy biggest watches of the game. At present gray’s one huge preseason has him in front of gaz to stay in the team.

    polec wines and kane mitchell worth a watch too.

    Jacobs vs Lobbe should be a good test of new ruck scoring

  5. Thought on ricky henderson as a viable mid price selection? 89 points in a solid hit out today; could he return to 2013 form..??


  6. Fingers crossed for brad crouch. Having scans on a foot injury that had him off the ground in the first quarter. I had him locked after his best preseason.


  7. Any thoughts on Tex Walker this year at 430k?

    I’m a crows man but personally I think he will monster opposition this year and get up to the 65-70+ goal season again.
