The best young talent across South Australia’s two AFL clubs will be showcased on Saturday February 23 when Adelaide faces Port Adelaide in an Under-23 trial game.

The Crows and Power have worked closely to organise the pre-season hit-out at Thebarton Oval before their scheduled JLT Community Series Showdown in Port Pirie a week later.

Adelaide’s two first round draftees, Chayce Jones (Pick No.9) and Ned McHenry (No.16), are set to receive their first taste of competitive action against the Power.

They could square off against their Port Adelaide equivalents in Connor Rozee (No.5), Zak Butter (No.12) and Xavier Duursma (No.18). 

The trial game announcement comes after three other AFL practice games have been confirmed in recent days. Hawthorn will face Carlton on Thursday February 21, while Collingwood v Melbourne and Geelong v North Melbourne will take place the following day.
