Greaves: Ballarat presents a challenge

Aaron Greaves Press Conference - 14 August 2017 - PTV Aaron Greaves speaks to the media.

PORT Adelaide broke ground with the first game for premiership points outside of Australia or New Zealand and will be making more history on Mars – Stadium, that is – to face the Western Bulldogs in Ballarat on Saturday.

As well as their round eight game against Gold Coast in Shanghai, the Power have played in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth and Geelong this season, along with three trips to Melbourne.

"We've certainly travelled the globe, from China to Ballarat," Power assistant coach Aaron Greaves said.

"It just presents another challenge.

"We've got a few players on our list that have played a bit of footy there and a couple players that come from north Ballarat.

"It should have a real community feel about it, which should be a good place to play."

The Power will get their first look at...

Rising Star: Houston nominated

AFL 2017 Round 21 - Port Adelaide v Collingwood

Houston in action against the Pies [pic: AFL]

AN 18-YEAR-OLD Dan Houston's mind began wandering beyond football during the 2015 NAB AFL Draft period.

He felt like it had to.

At least five AFL clubs showed interest in Houston – hence his invite to the Draft Combine – but the national draft came and went without his name being called out. The subsequent rookie draft was also 45 picks deep before he finally found a home at Port Adelaide.

There was plenty of time in between for thinking. What would I do if I'm not an AFL footballer? Did I make the right call to shut the season down and have hip surgery? Should I have tried to play more positions?

"Going to national combine, I thought I was a good chance," Houston told AFL.com.au.

"To have five clubs interested and lots of interviews, then to slip through to pick 45 in the rookie draft – it was a very scary moment. You second guess...

China: Chen leading from the front

CHINESE midfielder Chen Shaoliang won't give up chasing his AFL dream.

A cruelly timed knee injury has only heightened his resolve to one day repay Port Adelaide for its faith and patience.

It's testament to Chen's mental strength that he's back playing with the China Dragons in the AFL International Cup after rupturing the ACL in his right knee in March last year.

Port Adelaide had just started grooming the international signing from China's southern port city of Guangzhou to play with the Magpies in the 2016 SANFL season when he was sidelined in a freakish training mishap.

"Unfortunately I did the ACL in the first week I arrived. I got tackled from behind and I went to...

Fans' MVP: Showdown

AFL 2017 Round 20 - Adelaide v Port Adelaide

ADELAIDE, AUSTRALIA - AUGUST 06: Rory Sloane of the Crows is tackled by Robbie Gray of the Power during the 2017 AFL round 20 match between the Adelaide Crows and the Port Adelaide Power at Adelaide Oval on August 06, 2017 in Adelaide, Australia. (Photo by AFL Media)

ROBBIE GRAY got the nod from fans as the best on field after his performance in the Showdown last Sunday.

Gray finished the game with 33 disposals (20 contested) and six clearances and was a shining light on an otherwise dark afternoon at Adelaide Oval.

Tom Jonas got the four votes from fans for his work in a game where the Inside-50 count was heavily lopsided Adelaide’s way, giving him quite the workout down back.

It was three votes for Travis Boak, while fellow midfielders Jared Polec and Ollie Wines finished off the list with two votes and one vote respectively.

Wines looks set to be the Australian Outdoor Living...

Selection: Round 21

Last time v Pies - Rd 14, 2017 - PTV Port beats Collingwood at the 'G.

PORT ADELAIDE’S selectors have made four changes – three unforced – in its squad of 25 for Sunday’s clash with Collingwood.

It follows last week’s Showdown 43 loss to the Crows, where senior coach Ken Hinkley forecast a significant review into the performance.

Jackson Trengove, Aaron Young and Angus Monfries have all been omitted from the Power’s line-up for Sunday, while Jack Hombsch will miss with a hip complaint.

Hinkley told portadelaidefc.com.au the changes were a natural measure following the manner of the loss to the Crows.

“Last Sunday’s performance was really disappointing to everyone in the team, and we’ve got to acknowledge form in both our AFL and SANFL teams through the selection process. Clearly while the AFL team underperformed, the Magpies had a really strong win over South,” Hinkley...

Port's helping hand to auto workers

Drive Your Future - PTV Nathan Krakouer tells his story of resilience.

PORT ADELAIDE will work with the Government of South Australia to provide transition opportunities for state automotive supply-chain workers, it has been announced.

The Automotive Works in Transition program – or Drive Your Future – provides career advice, skills recognition, training for new jobs and advice on small business creation for those workers affected by the end of automotive manufacturing in South Australia.

Partners and spouses of eligible works can also access career advice and transition services.

Pickett's lost premiership jumper returned

1999 AFL Grand Final - Carlton v Kangaroos

Byron Pickett of the Kangaroos runs the ball forward during the 1999 AFL Grand Final between the Carlton Blues and the Kangaroos at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

A LEGEND LOSING a guernsey is never a happy tale, particularly when that legend is a cult hero and the guernsey lost is worn in a premiership. 

Byron Pickett's lost guernsey tale is twisted with irony. 

It wasn't his 2004 Port Adelaide premiership jumper that went missing, rather his 1999 guernsey worn to victory with North Melbourne. 

A journey of a lost jumper

As the story goes, following his return to South Australia, Pickett took his 1999 jumper to a framing shop in Glanville. As the story goes,

That shop went bust, but without readily available contact information, the guernsey disappeared, only to emerge at auction where it was sold off.
