Ebert and Hombsch tied to Alberton with new contracts

Ebert and Hombsch Press Conference - 27 June 2017 - PTV Brad Ebert and Jack Hombsch speak to the media.

BRAD EBERT and Jack Hombsch have committed to Port Adelaide with respective three and two-year contract extensions.

It will tie Ebert - currently one of the Power's premier midfielders - to Alberton until at least the end of the 2020 season.

That will ensure the iconic Ebert name (Brad's father Craig is a 182-gamer, while uncle Russell is a four-time Magarey Medallist at the club) remains at Port Adelaide during its 150th year.

Ebert recently played his 200th AFL game, having started his career at West Coast before returning home to his family club, having been a Magpies junior before entering the national system in 2007. 

 

Hombsch is poised to play his 100th AFL game next year after overcoming several injury setbacks during his career. 

Now cemented at Port until the end of 2019, his ability to play on a variety of opponents as one of the club's defensive lynchpins has grown since arriving for the 2013 season.

These extensions come on the back of news that young midfielder Sam Powell-Pepper and developing ruckman Billy Frampton had penned new contracts.
