The Port Adelaide Power may have only finished tenth in the 2019 season, but they won half of their games, 11 to be exact.

The Power will be looking to improve in season 2020 and make the finals. It was a good experience figuring out the ten players that the Power could least afford to lose in season 2020.

10. Oliver Wines
Wines is the vice-captain of Port Adelaide for season 2020. He averaged 25.25 disposals per game, but unfortunately, he was only able to play 12 games due to injury in 2019. He missed Round 1 due to a shoulder injury, but he’ll be back.

9. Dan Houston
Houston finished in third place in the 2019 Port Adelaide Power’s best and fairest. Houston missed just one game in 2019 and averaged over 20 disposals.

8. Tom Jonas
Jonas is Captain of the Port Adelaide Power in season 2020. Jonas finished equal fifth in the Power’s 2019 best and fairest. He finished in the top five despite missing four games.

7. Darcy Byrne-Jones
Byrne-Jones finished in second place in the 2019 Port Adelaide Power’s best and fairest. Byrne-Jones averaged over 20 disposals a game, featuring in all 22 of the Power’s games.

6. Robbie Gray
Gray kicked 24 goals in 19 games in 2019 and averaged 22.11 disposals in the same season. Gray still managed to finish tenth in the best and fairest despite missing three games.

5. Ryan Burton
Burton finished eighth in the 2019 Port Adelaide Power’s best and fairest despite missing six of the 22 games that the Power played in. He averaged 19.62 disposals per game and has the capability to provide run out of the defence.

4. Scott Lycett
Lycett averaged an impressive 25.67 hitouts per game in 2019. Expect Lycett to be the number one ruckman for the Port Adelaide Power in season 2020 and to benefit from playing that role on a permanent basis.

3. Connor Rozee
Rozee is an exciting young player with plenty of potential. Rozee finished fourth in the 2019 Port Adelaide Power’s best and fairest. He kicked the most goals of any Port Adelaide Power player amassing 29 goals and managing to play all 22 games.

2. Tom Rockliff
Rockliff is a pivotal part of the Port Adelaide Power midfield. Rockliff played 18 games in 2019 averaging 28.44 disposals per game. He finished in seventh in the 2019 Port Adelaide Power best and fairest despite missing four games, which shows what a quality player Rockliff is.

1. Travis Boak
Boak won the 2019 Port Adelaide Power’s best and fairest. Boak was selected in the 2019 AFL All-Australian squad of 40. He averaged 30.33 disposals per game in season 2020.
