Port Adelaide’s Travis Boak believes that the ‘sky is the limit’ for the current Power crop, noting that the team is in the best position it has been in for a number of years.
In an enormous show of faith by the former skipper, Boak can only speak glowingly about the current Port outfit, referring to the strides that the team has made over the last few years.
“I think the sky is the limit with this group, have a good balance of senior players that lead the way really well and younger players that bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm and how we want to play to the group,” Boak said.
“We have also matured as a group, 2013-14 we were just starting out so it was all a bit new and chaos and situations we didn’t handle well in games and the big one that stands out is West Coast final.”
“We are in a better space now.”
Boak will play his 250th game on Friday night against Collingwood at Marvel Stadium.
The 30-year-old has been one of the Power’s best so far this season, averaging over 32 touches and being a constant in the Port Adelaide midfield.
The veteran has been one of the key players in Port Adelaide’s strong start to the season, as well with the batch of youth coming through at Alberton, including Connor Rozee and Xavier Duursma – both who have received rising star nominations.
Boak and the Power will be looking to see what they’re made of when they come up against the Magpies.
“We have some big challenges ahead if us and great sides in the competition including Collingwood this Friday night,”
“We will see where we are at and hopefully we can continue to improve.”
