Power ruckman is an early contender for recruit of the year
Scott Lycett's move to Port Adelaide at the end of last season was overshadowed by several other high-profile switches, but he's on track to have the most impact at his new club. The former West Coast premiership-winning ruckman was outstanding for the Power in their gritty 16-point win against Carlton at Adelaide Oval on Saturday. Lycett's 25 disposals – 17 of those contested – and 10 clearances were both career highs, while also he also contributed 34 hit-outs, five marks and four inside 50s. The 26-year-old, who signed a five-year deal with the Power until the end of 2023, forms the perfect one-two punch with 2017 All Australian big man Paddy Ryder. - Lee Gaskin
Vary happy to see Scotty Flycett delivering at his new club. What he doesn't have in ruck work skill he makes up for in his excellent clearance work and outright aggression.
He served 8 years and brought home a premiership, and while we will definitely miss him at times this year (already we have), he is the kind of player who you have absolutely no problem with moving home and getting a nice fat contract.
Can't wait to see him at Optus in a couple of weeks!
