Anyone can contribute to The Roar and have their work featured alongside some of Australia’s most prominent sports journalists.
The Port Adelaide Power were admitted to the AFL in 1997, being promoted from the South Australian state league and changing their nickname from the Magpies to do so. They are best known for their dominance of the early 2000s, culminating in premiership success in 2004.
Following three missed finals appearances in four seasons, pressure was on Port Adelaide to rise up the ladder in 2019. Coach Ken Hinkley came under enormous scrutiny too.
In the end, it was more of the same for the Power. They looked to be in the box seat for finals with two weeks to go, but an upset demolition loss to the Kangaroos saw them finish in 10th for the second straight season.
