You can uncross your fingers Taj.


HE is the South Australian born, West Australian raised son of a Port Adelaide premiership gun, but while Taj Schofield hopes to land at the club where his father became a household name at next month’s draft, the teenager knows there is no guarantee.

Schofield, 18, has been a consistent performer at SANFL under 18 level with Woodville-West Torrens since moving back to Adelaide when his father Jarrad Schofield was appointed midfield coach at Port at the end of 2018.

On Wednesday Port Adelaide nominated the younger Schofield as a father-son option for the draft on Wednesday 9 December. This does not guarantee his selection but gives the club the first option to match any rival bid on him.
