I think Port rushed in a little early with their signings & surely must be flyblown by now.

Await with interest how these players perform up to their initial wraps !!!

Not really Digs my old pal. Dylan was a very good VFL footballer but I think it is fair to say that his best years (2016 and 2017) were behind him. He was definetelly capable of being a major threat to any opposition but it was hard to see him recapture that form as he has different priorities now.

I rated Conway pretty highly. Probably wouldnt win a B&F but had the ability to turn a game or win it off his own boot. I believe he was a similar player to Dean Galea?  Was he a replacement for Galea when he left?

Not as good a player as Galea IMHO but they both won a flag for Port !

I think Galea was in a different class to Conway, Conway was thereabouts but not as good. I think Galea had more explosive speed and probably better in terms of marking ability. 

 

In terms of replacement for Galea, Connors was Dean Galeas replacement and he was a good one at that - taking over where Dean left off to win the leagues highest goal kicker for season 2014. Conway arrived in 2017 therefore a few years after Dans and Deans departure - Dan Connors only played in 2014.
