Australian Football Live Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers JLT Series Stream AFL 2017 Pre Seasons Week 03 match will be kick off at Malseed Park, Mount Gambier, SA, Australia, Sunday 05 March 2017 online, 16.10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Port Adelaide Power coach Ken Hinkley’s noted eagerness to “play the kids” — and believe in the part they can play in the Power’s AFL campaign this year — will put recent draftee Willem Drew in the frame for selection on Thursday.
Drew, the No.33 pick in last year’s national draft, made a timely impression in the SANFL Magpies trial at the weekend — just as Hinkley prepares for another shuffle of his midfield rotations in Sunday’s JLT Community Series clash with Richmond at Mount Gambier on Sunday.
The Power will not name experienced midfielder Brad Ebert, who will rest this weekend to attend a wedding. This long-arranged leave pass for Ebert opens the debate at match committee on Thursday to tap Drew for the 29-man squad.
Drew, a 188cm midfielder from the North Ballarat under-age program, was the Power’s fourth recruit in last year’s national draft where Port Adelaide used three consecutive picks to restock its midfield with the much-noted Sam Powell-Pepper from East Perth at 18, Joe Atley from the Bendigo Pioneers at 32 and Drew.
Port Adelaide on Thursday will not consider Ebert and defender Matthew Broadbent; test specialist forward Aaron Young (ribs) who was battered before halftime in last Thursday’s one-point loss to St Kilda at Etihad Stadium and get a better read at training for the readiness to add gun midfielder Robbie Gray and young defender Darcy Byrne-Jones to the pre-season campaign.
