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.
The Power proved to be one of biggest disappointments of 2018. A horrendous late-season collapse that saw them lose six of their final seven games doomed the club to a 10th-place finish and a long offseason to ponder what could have been.
With a list capable of producing far more than they have of late, the pressure on Port Adelaide to rise up the ladder in 2019 will be immense. Plenty of eyes will be on the Power all season – for better or worse.
