The Port Adelaide footy club are confident they have the talent to once again be finals contenders in 2017.

After a disappointing couple of seasons  in which the club failed to make the finals, the club will kick off its pre season campaign against St Kilda on February 24.

Port assistant coach Matthew Nicks (pictured) says after adding some real talent to the clubs list, he believes the club will push strongly for a finals berth in 2017.
