Your whisper was correct. Announced over Socials on the weekend. Big get for them. Be interesting to see if any other ex-TTG players follow him back!


Brazel apparently returning also.

Port Adelaide announce another signing. 6 in total so far. How many recruits is too many for a team? At what point does it throw out the balance and leave existing players disgruntled??
Get that corn outta my face!!

I had heard that may have been on the cards as well. He would be earmarked as their future captain. I also heard both him and Winter have been unhappy with the culture at Uni as well - especially the abuse that's dished out to opposition players by some of their players and then playing the victim card when they cop it back.

Heard the same, their captain is the worst at that :shock: Heard Uni losing quite a few, be ironical if they miss the top 6 next year and end up in Div 2!

I wonder what parameters the club has put on after leaving the nest.
Eagles 2014 hope he didn't burn to many bridges when he left.

All his mates play at WT, so not surprised.

His Dad was the issue, typical father that thinks their son should be playing for the Redbacks.

Think he has distanced himself from his Dad and just wants to enjoy his cricket and play with his mates, think he will be a different player now. Was always a likeable lad and got on well with the players, just very immature and did some things his teammates were not impressed with, like not turning up or rocking up hungover.

Will be 8 if the above comes through, another signing announced. Surely some unsettling amongst the grades and other players ready to be poached/leave?

Lots of spots up for grabs for The Redbacks looks to have drawn lots of interstate hopefuls to Grade Cricket?

Hoffman, Malikzai, Wood, Valente, Massey, Calder, Manenti, who’s the 8th?

Would expect the divide between top and bottom be even greater. Prospect, Southerns etc will fall further behind :shock:

Unless I’ve missed any announcements, add Adelaide to that.

Northerns, East Torrens & Woodville probably in that next tier up. Then your div 1 hopefuls; West Torrens, Glenelg, Kensington, Sturt, TTG, Uni & now Port

Think you are spot on here. Definitely Adelaide in bottom three. But there will be a surprise somewhere no doubt :shock:

Any actual Port lads going to be playing in their 1's this year?

Will definitely strengthen the list down the grades which is good for the comp, however also has the ability to tear the club apart if they finish 7th or lower.

With Best gone would Greber from Uni head down as well? old man is on the coaching panel

Probably Benton (is he originally Port?) and Umpherston would be the only ones? I can't think of any others? This would be the 6th club Greber's have been involved with.

Impressive recruiting spree from port can’t remember a club being this proactive before
Saca would be pleased clubs are trying to strengthen and making competition stronger
Going to be 8 contenders the usual suspects west Torrens Sturt Glenelg uni Kensington ttg port Woodville and 5 battlers northern southern east Torrens Adelaide prospect which will actually make 2 divisions in the one comp
I’d expect an influx of recruits from UK to bolster clubs squads as well
Have the new redbacks found homes yet
