I like this bit ...David King on Aliir
“There’s something special about this guy. You see him do things and go ‘wow’, can you see him do it three times a fortnight, six, ten? I know this might sound crazy, but he’s got the potential to be an All-Australian type centre-half back slash ruckman,” King said.
“He’s a different talent. I really like this selection, it gives you more than coverage ... he can pinch-hit forward, he can certainly play centre half-back and what he does do he does at speed. He marks the ball and he’s gone, he creates scores.
“The Swans have given him very strong parameters to work in, no risk football. I think we’ll see the real Aliir Aliir at Port Adelaide.”

Might wanna check your footy record there. Bonner is in 26, Watts had 23!Yeah - avoid Buzza's #13, that's been a dead end number at the Power. Todd Marshall has done well to leave it behind. Apart from the obvious taking over of Hoff's number, there's also Jack Watts's #26 available.
He has had his issues with injury and some off field indiscretions. We would have checked this out before making a decision.When I've watched him play he's looked pretty good and I assumed he was a regular 22. Why has he only played 64 games over several years?
