Northampton’s Brynn Teakle will remain with Port Adelaide for the 2023 season after signing a one-year contract extension. After breaking his collarbone in his debut game there were doubts whether the mid-season recruit would feature again for Port, let alone the AFL. However having spent several weeks on the sidelines, Teakle made his return from that broken collarbone in the SANFL against Central District nearly a fortnight ago. Teakle was happy to remain at the club having quickly become a cult figure at Alberton. “I love the club very much and the people involved in this footy club, so it’s a privilege and an honour to get another year,” he said speaking to club media earlier in the week. “I’m absolutely loving my time at Port Adelaide, so I’m super-stoked to get a pre-season in and stay another year at this fantastic footy club.” He celebrated his contract extension with a return to the senior side against Richmond on the weekend, finishing with 12 disposals, eight tackles and 21 hit-outs as he managed to play out the game in a decent performance. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough as the Power were well-beaten by 38 points and have now lost their last four games in a row to fall out of finals contention.
