AFL – Port Adelaide skipper Travis Boak says while he’s disappointed to lose two crucial players to the ban, the club will do all it can to support the pair.

Port players Paddy Ryder (pictured) and Angus Monfries  were included in the 34 players banned last week and will not be permitted any contact with the club over the course of the 12 month suspension.

It would be easy for the club to move on as it seeks to put the furore behind them but Boak says instead that the players remain very much part of the clubs future plans.
