Game Vid: Round 21 v Sydney | PTV A BTS look of our win over the Swans

PORT ADELAIDE had two players selected in Round 21’s AFL.com.au Team of the Week after the Power defeated Sydney by 47 points at Adelaide Oval on Saturday afternoon.

Co-captain Tom Jonas was selected in the back pocket, with the key defender playing a pivotal defence role in Port’s victory.

Jonas had a season-high 24 disposals at 92 per cent efficiency, along with six marks and eight rebound 50s.

Darcy Byrne-Jones found himself on the half-back flank after collecting a team-high 28 disposals against the Swans.

Byrne-Jones provided plenty of run from the defensive half in Saturday’s win, and delivered the ball inside 50 on seven occasions.

The 23-year-old was also unanimously recognised by the coaches - receiving the maximum 10 votes in the Shadforth AFLCA Player of the Year award.
