FOOTY season is nearly here, and you can build your 2016 first 22 as portadelaidefc.com.au counts down the days to the start of the Power's next campaign.
So put your selector's hat on as we go through all the important positions to work out just who would feature in our readers' Round 1 starting line-up.
There are plenty of forward options throughout Port Adelaide's list. The loss of Angus Monfries sees the Power lose 200-odd games of experience, but will create a competitive environment for its younger attack dogs to push for a spot.
Port Adelaide's captain is its classy and composed lead midfielder. Prolific at winning the ball and clean with his hands, Boak drew taggers last year like never before. The toughest competitor.
Doubling as a forward, Gray last year became the first man to win both back-to-back John Cahill Medals and All-Australian selections in the same season. Elusive, fast and creative, he's a tough match-up for any opponent.
The workhorse. Ebert is a tough, solid inside midfielder who can win the ball and applies strong defensive pressure around the ground.
Potentially the most naturally gifted of the Power's mids, Hartlett combines a strong engine with a lethal boot to punish opponents when running forward. Injuries have set him back previously.
The Power's fastest to 50 games, Wines battled injury in 2015 but remained a consistent performer on the field when unencumbered. Bullocking in style and tough to match when he's powering ahead on foot.
Can sidestep with little change of pace and some of the safest hands and feet for disposal, when Polec plays well, the Power does too. Returns from a navicular injury in 2015.
Brendon Ah Chee
Debuted in his fourth year on the list in 2015 and set up a win against the Kangaroos and polled three Brownlow votes against the Giants. His big body and incredible handpass make him a new and exciting weapon for Ken Hinkley.
Young is a pacy runner and wins the ball on the inside. In and out of last year's team, he was the Power's super-sub under the old interchange system and will work hard to be in the club's leading 22.
Small in height, big on heart, Gray returned late last year to feature as one of the Power's best small mids. Not just that, he was playing career-best footy at the time the Power hit its stride late in the season. Rewarded with a senior spot in 2016.
Recruited via trade in 2016, Toumpas is a gifted former Demon midfielder who will add extra competitiveness to the Power's engine room. Will be working hard to make his club debut this year.
