    Those numbers look pretty grim all round from last season. I just can't see Rocky coming in and putting up premium numbers, I think it would in fact have a negative impact on the teams performance if he did.

    He's a very strong watch for mine. He'd be one of their best ball users, especially going inside 50 where he has an added bonus of actually having targets now and outside of Gray he's the guy I'd most want with the ball in the Port midfield (not saying much given they're all basically butchers).

    The biggest question is whether he can get the tackles or if the plethora of grunts who love to tackle are going to cannabilise each other at Port. The big fall off for Rocky was the tackle numbers which is pretty easily explained by his shoulder being ****ed but I'm not sure that can bounce back.

    Port have played a long and direct style largely because they've lacked skilled targets and guys to create space. There's a reason they keep going to Ebert even though it's a likely turnover.

    Port's style changes every year as well so will be interesting to see.

    With Ryder, Gray, Wines, Pittard, Boak, Rockliff and Wingard all being very viable options this year they're a team of high interest in the preseason.

    Missing from JLT 1, and may miss JLT 2.

    I want to pick him, but not sure if the risk is going to be worth it.

    Personally, I’m going to wait. Just don’t know how he’s going to fit into a new team and game plan.
