The best young talent across South Australia's two AFL clubs will be showcased on Saturday February 23 when Adelaide faces Port Adelaide in an Under-23 trial game.

The Crows and Power have worked closely to organise the pre-season hit-out at Thebarton Oval before their scheduled JLT Community Series Showdown in Port Pirie a week later.

Adelaide’s two first round draftees, Chayce Jones (Pick No.9) and Ned McHenry (No.16), are set to receive their first taste of competitive action against the Power.

They could square off against their Port Adelaide equivalents in Connor Rozee (No.5), Zak Butter (No.12) and Xavier Duursma (No.18).

The trial game announcement comes after three other AFL practice games have been confirmed in recent days. Hawthorn will face Carlton on Thursday February 21, while Collingwood v Melbourne and Geelong v North Melbourne will take place the following day.

Match Details
Adelaide v Port Adelaide
Thebarton Oval
Saturday February 23, 11.00am ACDT

We will have to use SANFL top ups as we dont have enough u23. So Ive added some 24 year olds like ROB , Mcadam and Knight. This could get ugly.

F: Sholl Himmelberg Davis
HF: Stengle Fogarty McHenry
C: Knight Gallucci Jones
HB: Milera ROB Hamil
B: McPherson Butts Doedee
R: Strachan Poholke Murphy
INT FROM: Mcadam

F: Johnson - Frampton - Woodcock
HF: Farrell - Marshall - Rozee
C: Bonner - Atley - Patmore
HB: Burton - Grundy - Byrne-Jones
B: Garner - Howard - Houston
R: Ladhams - Hewett - Drew

Does seem a bit lop-sided with us having more players with AFL experience. Though it’s going to be interesting to see how the new recruits for both teams fare.

When I saw this yesterday I thought we would be a bit short on numbers. Maybe they will allow us to play our rookies as well, as some of them would be pretty stiff not getting a regular AFL game and missing this one as well. CEY, Wilson, Hunter?

Great concept though, I'm certainly more keen on this than AFLX at this stage.

This isn’t the first time the crows and power have done this.

Trent Hentschel broke his ankle in one of these games back in the early 2000’s. So, it’s not a new concept.

Might head over to The Barton when it’s on.

Yeah, much better idea than AFLX. Plus we don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth to see a trial game...

No way...fans want to see the best players on a soccer pitch with pink balls going for 20 point zooper doopers from the launch zone in superhero costumes, not the team they support playing exciting kids against their arch rival at a local footy oval

Yeah that sounds about right. It’s at Marvel Stadium they’ll probly wheel out Stan Lee’s urn to toss the coin.

F: Murphy Strachan McHenry
HF: McAdam Himmelberg Davis
C: Knight Gallucci Hamill
HB: Milera Butts McPherson
B: Jones Fogarty Doedee
R: ROB Poholke Stengle
INT FROM: Sholl Kelly

C: Jones, Polholke, Gallucci
HF: McAdam, Fogarty, McHenry

So basically we have agreed to what would be close to what happens when there were three JLT games with the first game mostly being our young ones playing, the second game a mix of the decent players with closer to our full line up and the third game with the close to round 1 line up.

Exciting line up. Some nice potential there. Replace Poholke with pick 1, 2019 and the future looks bright.
