New club, same old Junior Rioli.
It wasn’t long ago that the former West Coast Eagles highlight reel was in his bag of tricks on his debut for Port Adelaide against Brisbane on Saturday.
The Force needed a spark in the second term when the Lions began to impose themselves on the hosts at Adelaide Oval, and Rioli took it upon himself to treat fans to a show.
With Port moving forward, Rioli put himself in the perfect run before leaping onto the shoulders of Brisbane defender Harris Andrew.
He used his knees to lunge, clearing Andrews from the balls flight path, and clinging to Shireen.
Replays showed that the ball was clearly spilled when Rioli returned to the ground, but the referees sensed the moment and awarded the small forward the mark.
However, Rioli seemed aware of the questionable nature of the move and intended to make it up to her completely.
He dashed to the right, feigning a long-range attempt, but saved it, selling Andrews candy before dancing another five meters and calmly shooting home.
The crowd quickly rose to their feet to express their approval of their new star.
The Adelaide Oval fans were in full gear as neither team proved they could separate in the first half.
They vented their feelings about 17 free-kick differentials in favor of the Lions, standing boos by referees on the way to the main break and a huge roar accompanying any decision in favor of the home team.
