Port Adelaide star Connor Rozee speaks about the youngsters tearing up the track and his challenge in the midfield.

Port Adelaide star Connor Rozee has high hopes for some of the club’s future talent as he enters his fourth pre-season.

The mid-forward said another first-round draftee in Josh Sinn has made an immediate impact, as has father-son selection Jase Burgoyne.

“Josh Sinn and Jase Burgoyne have been really good. Josh has been working with the midfield group so I’ve seen him the most. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see him a bit through out the season,” he said.

On his own game, Rozee said there’s plenty of room to improve.

“Main thing is the consistency in my training.” he said.

“I’ve said before the injuries made me have two or three months off at a time where I had to spend most of the later part of pre season trying to get my fitness back up.

“It’s pretty nice to comeback fully fitted and working on my game this time in the season. with the plan to go into midfield a bit more, I have to improve on my consistency on my inside game.”

Going into 2022, Rozee is itching to spend some more time in the guts, similar to his draft partners Zak Butters and Xavier Duursma.

“I want to get into midfield more and have more of an impact on games. It’s hard to set sort off specific goals in terms of numbers,” he said.

While Port’s pre-season has hit a blip with both Charlie Dixon and Orazio Fantasia suffering injuries, Rozee said the aim is again to go deep in September.

“Our plan is to play finals again and go deep. That’s the plan at this stage,” he said.
