It’s fair to say that both Port and Adelaide treat the Showdown like mini-finals, so any missing player is always going to hurt.
That’s especially the case when one of your star players is missing because they have broken the league’s COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
Jodie and Soda caught up with Port Adelaide Chairman David Koch about the Ollie Wines situation, this weekend’s Showdown and Travis Boak’s pillow!
Kochie shared with Jodie and Soda just how disappointed he is with the situation.
“I’m not happy at all, I’m not happy at all. All players and media, coaches, everybody in the industry has been briefed on this, fully briefed, we couldn’t do any more,” Koch said.
“It was a silly thing to do, didn’t think it through,” Koch continued.
