Port Adelaide forward Mitch Georgiades is a chance to return for the Power in next week’s Preliminary Final after a successful SANFL outing.
Having injured his hamstring in Round 23 against the Bulldogs, Georgiades made his return to the field on Saturday for Port Adelaide’s reserves, kicking 1.1 from nine disposals against Glenelg.
He wasn’t the only senior listed Power player to press his case for selection, with Hamish Hartlett kicking 1.1 from 23 touches, while Boyd Woodcock (27 disposals) and Sam Mayes (26 disposals, one goal) were prolific.
With players impressing in the state level, former AFL recruiter Matt Rendell believes the Power have great depth to pick from if they’re to lose players in a potential Grand Final qualifying win next weekend.
“If they get injuries next week (against the Bulldogs) and they win, then they’ve got players to come in,” Rendell said on SEN’s FootySA.
“Hartlett is a gun, (Tom) Clurey could easily come in as a defender for any of those three in (Tom) Jonas, (Trent) McKenzie or Aliir Aliir.
“Georgiades surprisingly off a hamstring got through the game.
“They’ve got some depth of players ready to go if something happens next week.”
Port’s strength in depth is a major advantage heading into the Prelim.— Footy SA (@Footy_SA) September 5, 2021
