2017 Season

1 Syd Youngster got a taste of what's required at senior level and importantly had a few key disposals late. 4
2 Frem 10 rebound-50’s out of the Port Adelaide’s back fifty highlighted his second game performance. 6
3 Adel Wasn’t overawed by the occasion and played well across halfback. 5
4 GWS One of the shining lights. Defended well and won the ball in the back half. Looks a likely type. 7
5 Carl Given the task of playing on his best mate Jack Silvagni and beat him. 6
6 Bris Quiet game, though was efficient with his 14 possesions (90%). 3
7 WCE Had the tough match up on Mark Le Cras, will learn from the experience. 3
8 SANFL Bye. -
9 SANFL Chalked up 21 possessions and looked good in backline. -
10 SANFL Instrumental in third-term comeback with his pack marking and piercing long kicks. -
11 Hip.
12 SANFL One of 13 Port players to pick up more than 20 touches in landslide demolition of the Bloods. -
13 Bris Back in the team after some strong form in the SANFL and had five rebound-50’s. 6
14 Coll Youngster played role down back. Only 13 possessions but what he did was done with an element of class. 4
15 Rich Great find for the Power this season, reads the game well and isn’t afraid to put his head over the footy when needed. 6
16 WCE Sold effort. Did a defensive job and had 19 possessions. 5
17 NM Was serviceable in defence and swept up any loose ball his bigger teammates knocked to ground. 6
18 Melb Not as good as he was early in the year in defence and only hit the target by foot 50 per cent of the time. 4
19 Bye.
20 SANFL Impressed across half-forward with a magnificent boundary-line goal and some quality link work. -
21 Coll Kicked his first ever AFL goal after receiving a fortunate 50 metre penalty. 6
22 WB Popped shoulder in first quarter in tackle by McLean. Returned though and rarely wasted a possession. 6
23 GCS Great bit of instinctive play in the second term where he picked a loose ball and kicked truly from 45 metres out. 6
EF WCE Steady enough in back half. Had 18 touches. 6
