Tarkyn Lockyer at Port in 2011?

Would he be worth pursuing?

I'd love to hear Port supporters opinions...

Tarkyn Lockyer might be ok at vfl level for a season or two but not worth huge bucks. If they don't spend a fortune he would be worth it, otherwise if he is in it for a dollar he might as well pull on the boots for Balwyn.
He would go well for Port and would definately be a help. He has slowed a touch at afl level but would still be useful for Port for a season or two.

I heard Moe are chasing Josh Fraser ?

Here we go again. All roads lead to Port.
Lockyer, Fraser, Miller, Medhurst, Jones, Davis, Anthony, Blake, McDonald etc, How will they fit them all in. Might stretch the salary cap a bit.
Josh Fraser & Moe, they deserve each other .......

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

Steady on Digs!

Not all clubs have AFL experience to draw on.

Wouldnt Werribee fare alot better if they had Jones, Hale, Edwards, Smith, harding, Urquart etc......

Luck of the draw there with all young kids sent to the shitfarm cos Ballarat is too far away!!

I think VFL supporters on here actually get upset when players are linked to Port. If u don't recruit you perish.

Very true Northport but my point was that you would not want any of them, The reason for their delisting is that they are finished or can't play & won't play any better in the VFL.
After 100 odd games in the AFL they are juicy fruited.
The only true exception in Port's case has been McGrath who was an outstanding player who gave great service.
Any more ????

We don't get upset...we just are bemused as why some supporters think that Port Melbourne can be the ONLY worthwhile destination for any delisted AFL players..anywhere else than Port is considered second rate...

The one thing that AFL players hate is chopping and changing teams each week. I guess by playing at a stand alone team it is a stable environment and everyone trains and plays together.

Exactly my point Northport, Good player who wasn't there when you wanted him.
A very good player when he started at Geelong , but after his accident he was never the same & found it difficult to obtain his original brilliance.

Well he only missed out on the finals, and had very good season at Port. He was devastated on that final training session before the Grand Final when he was ruled out.
