Big news coming out of Richmond today – with 2015 premiership player and Neil Kerley Medallist Jason Porplyzia signing on for 2018. After a disappointing 2016 season due to injury and then the heartbreak of an ACL at the start of the 2017 season he will be back with fire in his belly in 2018.
“It’s been great being able to watch some of the boys develop over the last few years and I’m really looking forward to running out with them again.” Porplyzia said
“Gav knows this playing group really well from his experience here and I feel like he will have an immediate impact and lead us on the charge back into the finals.”
“He has a great rapport with the players, he understands what it takes to have success at SANFL level and I’m really excited to see what we can achieve together.”
Jason is a fantastic leader at our club, not only for his senior teammates but as the development coach for our Centre of Excellence program.
Porplyzia has played 113 games and kicked 90 goals for West Adelaide and has recently become a player life member in 2017.
We are thrilled we will have Jason playing in red and black in 2018.
