In relation to recent reports of Liam Jurrah’s alleged driving offence, the Port Adelaide Football Club can confirm it has been working with Liam since he commenced a short-term training stint with the Power in early December ahead of the 2013 AFL Pre-season and Rookie drafts.
After making the decision not to select Liam in last month’s Pre-season and Rookie drafts, the club has been working with the AFL to attempt to provide a pathway for Liam to return to the AFL system.
During this period, the club has been waiting on a commitment from Liam in relation to training and playing with Port Adelaide (Magpies) in the SANFL and working in the club’s community department.
The club is disappointed with Liam’s alleged driving offence but before making a decision on his future the club needs time to assess all the information regarding Liam’s situation.
Until this point, the club has no further comment to make on this matter.
