numbers.jpgnumbers_back.jpg

FIVE of Port Adelaide’s new recruits have been officially handed their playing numbers for season 2018.

Steven Motlop, Tom Rockliff, Trent McKenzie, Jack Trengove and Jack Watts will don their brand new digits at training from Friday onwards. 

Steven Motlop kicks off the number reveal, officially taking over the #6 guernsey from former custodian Angus Monfries, while Tom Rockliff will don #11 - previously worn by Aaron Young.

Despite popular speculation, Jack Trengove won’t be taking over the number of namesake Jackson Trengove – he’ll have a fresh start with #19, most recently worn by Matt White.

Trent McKenzie will then don the #12 guernsey while Jack Watts will wear #23; Matthew Lobbe’s old number.

This leaves the following numbers up for grabs for the club’s six new draftees – Sam Hayes, Kane Farrell, Jake Patmore, Joel Garner, Dom Barry and Lindsay Thomas:

Lindsay-Thomas2.jpg

PORT ADELAIDE has finalised its 2018 playing list with the addition of Lindsay Thomas at today’s AFL Rookie Draft.

The 29-year-old former North Melbourne forward was selected with pick 12.

Port Adelaide List Manager Jason Cripps says Thomas continues Port Adelaide’s draft strategy of strengthening the club’s midfield and forward lines.

“We picked four young mid/forwards at Friday night’s Draft,” Cripps said.

“In Lindsay we now have a proven goal-kicker who can add experience and depth to that part of the ground.”

Thomas played 205 games during 11 seasons with the Kangaroos, kicking 325 goals and winning the club’s goal-kicking award in 2010 and 2013.

Originally from Port Lincoln, Thomas played junior football for Mallee Park, the same club that produced Byron Pickett and the Burgoyne brothers, Peter and Shaun.

Thomas played 38 junior games, 11 reserves games and six senior games for the...

Youngsters to train with Rabbitohs

youngsters.jpg

PORT ADELAIDE’S new draftees will be welcomed to the club with a challenging pre-season trip to Sydney next week, to train with the first to fifth-year players of NRL side – South Sydney Rabbitohs.

The training camp is a great way for both organisations to come together and share different concepts, and find ways to improve – in particular the grappling and tackling techniques.

Port’s second-year players will also be involved in the gruelling camp, and Head of Football Development Aaron Greaves says it’s a great opportunity for them to provide leadership for the new draftees.

“We want to teach the new draftees to train the Port Adelaide way,” Greaves said.

“We want to set an environment for them that is mentally and physically challenging and uncomfortable at times.

“The second-year players will be there also, to help guide them through, and help strengthen relationships with all players...

NEW recruit Tom Rockliff displayed his strong leadership skills even before he arrived at Alberton for his first- ever training session at Port Adelaide on Monday.

Rockliff made it his mission to contact all five new draftees on Friday night, in a bid to make their move to the Power a smoother one.

“It is important, especially as an 18-year-old, to have that connection with the club,” Rockliff told media after Monday’s first pre-season training session.

“It makes it a lot easier when you walk through the doors - you have a face that you’ve already talked to. That first barrier is already broken down.

“For them, there is so much spinning through their heads. Two days ago they were at home with their parents and now they have moved interstate – it’s a whirlwind for them.”

The ex-Lion recalled the moment...

Thomas' Port ambitions

Lindsay Thomas.jpg

PORT ADELAIDE recruit Lindsay Thomas isn't planning on making up the numbers and believes his best is still good enough to be one of the premier small forwards in the AFL.

The 29-year-old has joined the Power on a one-year deal after he was taken with the 12th pick in the rookie draft on Monday.

Thomas booted 325 goals in 205 games with North Melbourne, but played just nine games for the Kangaroos this year before coach Brad Scott told him he wasn't in their plans for the future.

"I'm not here to make the numbers up," Thomas told reporters in Adelaide on Tuesday.

"I had a pretty quiet year this year, it's well documented, but if you look at my stats before this year, I think they match up with some of the best small forwards in the competition.

"There's no doubt my best footy is still ahead of me and coming to a new club, I feel re-energised and like I've been drafted again.

"If I...

THE story of Port Adelaide player Chen Shaoliang has been included as one of the 45 stories used to mark the 45 years of diplomatic relations between Australia and the People’s Republic of China.

45 Years, 45 Stories is a collection of stories told from Australian and Chinese perspectives that speak to the breadth and depth of the friendship between our peoples. 

“I was born in Chaozhou to a family of farmers and went on to study sports management at Guangzhou Sports University,” Chen said.

“In 2012, the AFL came to my university to draft international players. That was my first experience of Australian football. They saw that I could jump and invited me to Australia. I later became the South China Australian Football League’s leading goal kicker, as well as the captain of Team China.

“In 2016, I was invited to train with Port Adelaide Football Club. It was a dream opportunity for...

Trio return to training early

watts training.jpg

JACK WATTS, Jack Trengove and Trent McKenzie have joined their new Port Adelaide teammates for the first time on Monday morning.

The trio reported for duty earlier than expected, running around with the Power's first-to-fourth year players at Alberton Oval.

Watts and Trengove were training with the main group, while McKenzie was on a modified program with the rehab group.

Watts joined the Power during the NAB AFL Trade Period from Melbourne in exchange for pick 31.

Trengove – a former co-captain with the Demons – was delisted at the end of the season, but the South Australian received a lifeline from the Power as a delisted free agent.

McKenzie was also cut loose from Gold Coast, the Power adding the 25-year-old defensive superboot on a one-year deal.

Power defender Dan Houston said it was great to have players of the experience of Watts, Trengove and McKenzie at the club.

Thompson returns to Alberton

thumbnail_thompson.jpg

THE PORT ADELAIDE FOOTBALL CLUB is pleased to welcome Scott Thompson back to Alberton on a two-year contract as a midfield development coach.

Thompson says the transition to full-time coaching should be a smooth one after acting as a mentor to the Adelaide Football Club’s young midfielders during his latter seasons playing with the Crows.

“As a senior player it’s natural to take on that sort of responsibility but it helped me realise I have a genuine passion to help young players get the best out of themselves,” he said.

“Port Adelaide has an exciting group of young midfielders and I’m also looking forward to working closely with the likes of Ken Hinkley, Michael Voss and Matt Lokan – who I know well from my school and junior football days.

“It seems like a lifetime ago that I was finding my way as a youngster at Alberton but it’s a great feeling to be back where my footy...
