It was discussed about a decade ago, I think it was John Platten who had a son running around in TAC Cup. The AFL confirmed that a F/S must be biological and it caused a minor stir from people saying what about the adopted children!!
No because Fabian is not JHF's biological father. However, Fabian Francis Jr, Jason Horne-Francis' half brother, would have been F/S eligible for Port if Fabian Sr had played 100 games for Port's AFL side. Although being indigenous and living in Adelaide may make Fabian Jr eligible to join Port's NGA instead. JHF's half sister Phebe is F/D eligible for Port, Brisbane and Melbourne.If Fabian Francis played 100 AFL games for Port, could they have gotten Jason Horne Francis under father-son?
Are you sure? This link on the AFL website suggests otherwise...Nope. Port Adelaide and Adelaide don't get access to indigenous players from metropolitan Adelaide. Only those from regional South Australia.
An example of this played out in the 2021 draft when Fremantle had NGA access to South Fremantle local Jesse Motlop if no bid came through before pick 40. Carlton swooped with pick 27 but he would have otherwise been eligible to be NGA drafted to the Dockers. So as long as JHF's family lives in Port's metropolitan zone and the rule doesn't change, then they should get NGA access to JHF's half brother Fabian Francis Jr."The West Australian and South Australian clubs pushed for access to metropolitan Indigenous players to be added to their NGA zones and won approval for that two years ago in 2019."
