I’d keep an eye on Luka Slade if eligible next year. Really liked his dad as a player and apparently Luka looks to have some potential as a mid.
Wouldn't Michaelanny qualify as a F/S for Port if he and his Dad played for Norwood, as they are one of our aligned clubs?
Bit like Borlase was tied as an NGA to the Croms cos he was in Sturt's zone.

No, Norwood are one of the Camries's teams - we have Port, North, West, Centrals, Woodville and Torrens

GD is correct for Father-Son aligned clubs.

For NGA purposes we are aligned to country and metro zones of WWT, Norwood, South Adelaide and West Adelaide

Crows for NGA purposes are aligned to country and metro zones of Sturt, Glenelg, North Adelaide and Central Districts.
