Georgiades out of final


Adelaide: Port Adelaide have ruled emerging forward Mitch Georgiades out of tomorrow night’s preliminar­y final against the Western Bulldogs.

The Power say lingering doubt over the 19-year-old’s injured hamstring prompted the decision. The attacker was substitute­d out of Port’s last home-and-away game, a two-point triumph against the Bulldogs.

Georgiades missed the Power’s qualifying final victory over Geelong but returned to action in state league ranks last weekend.

“Although he pulled up well after the match, he has not recovered sufficient­ly to be able to compete at AFL level this week,” the Power said yesterday.
