Sydney training camp a success

tackling sesh.jpg

PORT ADELAIDE’S first and second-year players returned to Adelaide on Thursday afternoon after a gruelling but rewarding camp in Sydney with NRL side – South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The four-day camp consisted of a multitude of conditioning sessions, grappling and tackling sessions, AFL-NRL hybrid games, and an inspirational crash course in the Rabbitohs’ history.

New draftee Joel Garner was particularly drawn to the similarities between the two clubs, and said the opportunity to learn aspects of a different sport was exciting.

“They had the same values and the same sort of history that our club does, which was really exciting to see,” Garner told reporters at Adelaide airport on Thursday afternoon.

“It was an awesome experience, and they made us feel very welcome.

“We were really lucky to be able to go up there and spend time with them, and we were very grateful to them for allowing us...

Atley excited by new mentor

AFL 2017 Round 18 - Melbourne v Port Adelaide

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JULY 22: Joe Atley of the Power is tackled by Jayden Hunt of the Demons during the round 18 AFL match between the Melbourne Demons and the Port Adelaide Power at Melbourne Cricket Ground on July 22, 2017 in Melbourne, Australia.

SECOND-YEAR Port Adelaide midfielder Joe Atley is loving being mentored by 300-gamer Scott Thompson.

But that wasn't the case when 19-year-old Atley was left battered and bruised after tagging Adelaide stalwart Thompson in a SANFL game against the Crows in April this year.

"At the time, I was hating him, because he was giving me elbows and he was throwing a few punches," Atley told AFL.com.au.

"But after the game, he came up to me and was giving me a few pointers and a few tips.

"Ever since then, I've followed him and he's followed me."

Thompson was one of the most physical midfielders in...

CYP carnival a hit

CYP photo 1.jpg

PORT ADELAIDE recently hosted the Community Youth Sports & Wellbeing Carnival at EP Nazar Reserve, with students across a number of schools in the community coming together to engage in a variety of sports alongside Port Adelaide players.

On Thursday Joe Atley, Dan Houston, Willem Drew, Peter Ladhams, Emmanuel Irra, Jarrod Lienert and Cam Hewett joined 210 school students to deliver important messages around being active, making good decisions and living a healthy lifestyle.

The carnival is a great way for students to be active and learn important healthy lifestyle lessons, but according to Port Adelaide’s Community Youth Program Manager Russell Ebert it is equally beneficial for the Port players.

“The players are developing all of the time. They come to the club as talented, young men in a sporting sense, but they are continually looking to improve,” Ebert told...

Four'N Twenty supports China schools program

fourtwenty.jpg

THE Port Adelaide Football Club is proud to announce a partnership with Four’N Twenty that will continue strengthening cross-cultural ties between Australia and China.

The iconic Australian brand will be the Presenting Partner for Port Adelaide’s ground-breaking grass-roots program, Power Footy, which uses football to introduce Australian culture to Chinese schools.

Patties Foods Chief Executive Officer Paul Hitchcock says, “Port Adelaide’s engagement in China matches the company’s vision to evolve its sponsorship strategy with a more global focus, while building on the relationship with the club which has already spanned three years.”

“Nothing is more Australian than a Four’N Twenty beef pie with sauce, but we don’t see any reason why we can’t share it with the world. After all it is ‘The Great Australian Taste’,” said Mr Hitchcock.

“We recently struck a partnership with the...

AS Port Adelaide’s young guns jetted to Sydney this morning to kick off a training camp with the Rabbitohs, one player is apparently relishing the opportunity to train alongside the NRL’s elite.

Head of Football Development Aaron Greaves says Sam Powell-Pepper is particularly excited to throw his weight around at the combined tackling and grappling sessions as part of the hybrid program.

It’s all part of a week-long interstate camp for the club’s first and second year players, where the AFL and NRL sides will come together to share concepts and skills.

“When we explained this camp to the boys, Pep was the first one to put his hand up and say, ‘I’ll have...

Match report: AAA v NZ

gameshot.jpg

IN a game played in great spirit, Port Adelaide’s Aboriginal AFL Academy completely outclassed the New Zealand Under-18 representative team at QBE stadium today.

Leading at every change, the Aboriginal AFL Academy (AAA) defeated New Zealand (NZ) by 145 points underneath blue skies in Auckland.

The AAA won the toss and kicked with a three-goal breeze in the first quarter and were out of the blocks fast courtesy of an early goal to small forward Terell Rigney.

With Tye Bedford and Malachai Ahmatt dominating in ruck with AAA forwards were getting plenty of opportunities and by midway through the first quarter had already kicked four goals to NZ’s none.

Ahmatt’s brilliant first quarter continued with back-to-back goals in as many minutes and at quarter time the AAA led by 43 points, 6.7 to 0.0.

The second quarter was much the same and by the time Ahmatt had scored his third goal at the...

NZ Academy diary: Day 7

day7_4.jpg

TODAY was the final full day of our tour here in New Zealand.

So far it has been beyond my wildest dreams.

I’ve met new family members for the first time, discovered a new culture and shared all of this with 17 of my close mates.

The most significant element of this tour for all of us was cultural exchange and for us as young Aboriginal men to take something positive back from the Maori culture that can help better our Aboriginal culture back home.

For me it was about preserving our language which will therefore continue to preserve our culture and identity. As an indigenous culture we need to get better at this.

Equally as important, is the need for us to better embrace our history and culture as young Aboriginal people.

The thing that is so striking about the Maori culture is the willingness to share stories and traditions with each other.

The elder Maori people are always passing on...

Day 5

Today was going to be tough, there were no two ways about it.

From the moment my alarm sounded at 5.30am I knew this was going to be a long and arduous day for me and the team.

Shortly after our 6.00am breakfast we were on the team bus on our way to New Zealand’s Tongiraro Alpine Crossing made famous across the world as the scene for part of the Lord of the Rings movie.

Right now as we approached the crossing Hollywood was the last thing on our minds for we knew had a seven hour mountain trek ahead of us.

The boys were tired and not sure what to expect but we were as prepared as we could be with water, thermal clothing in case the temperatures dropped suddenly and water proof jackets in the event of rain.

Once we arrived we all broke into three even groups all assigned with a specialist mountain climber for support.

Just after 7.30am we all set off on the 1900 metre climb up the...

Ruckman intent on building tank

Sam Hayes highlights - PTV Highlights of Port Adelaide's Pick no. 47, Sam Hayes

PORT ADELAIDE’S first selection in the 2017 National Draft Sam Hayes was thrilled when his name was finally read out, after admitting to being slightly nervous as the night progressed.

Hayes slipped to no. 47 in the draft, which shocked many experts who believed the 202cm ruckman would be selected in the top 20, but the number didn’t faze the 18-year-old.

“It was a little bit daunting, a little bit of a long night,” Hayes told Rowey and Bicks on FiveAA on Monday evening.

“I was just happy to have my name read out, I didn’t really focus on what number it was.”

Not satisfied by simply making an AFL list, the two-time U18 All-Australian ruckman is determined to become the best possible player he can, and admits an improvement to his aerobic capacity is essential.

 “I think within the game I run alright,...

AFLX to grow the game

AFL 2017 Round 02 - Port Adelaide v Fremantle

THE new and exciting AFLX will make its debut next year, with Port Adelaide facing the Pies, Dockers, Crows, Cats and Eagles at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide on Thursday, February 15. 

The fast-paced, modified version of AFL football will be played on soccer and rugby configured grounds, consisting of two 10-minute halves and 10 players per team (seven on-field, three interchange). 

Port Adelaide CEO Keith Thomas said he’s excited by the innovation of AFLX, and the opportunity that it brings on an international scale. 

“To be able to co-host the inaugural AFLX competition is something we are pretty excited about on a number of fronts,” Mr Thomas told portadelaidefc.com.au. 

“First and foremost, it’s great that our members and fans will get to see the launch of this exciting version of the game and we know they’ll support us with that.

NZ Academy diary: Day 3 and 4

photo 6.jpg

I woke up to a beautiful, sunny morning in Rotorua still with my head still spinning from the previous two days when I came face to face with the other half of my heritage.

On one hand I was incredibly excited, on the other hand I was slightly overwhelmed trying to take it all in.

Later tonight I’ll get more of an opportunity to learn more when I meet my cousin Georgia at our team hotel.

Right now, I’m looking forward to getting around the rest of the academy boys and immersing myself in more of the Maori culture.

After breakfast we walked to a local, traditional Polynesian spa as a way of recovering from the previous two days training sessions.

The spas were set on a lake overlooking an old volcano site. The whole experience was awesome.

The view was magnificent and the spas were so relaxing. The water was very hot, in some spas the temperature reached 42 degrees Celsius.
