He will pull on the red, white and blue at AFL level for the first time against the Gold Coast Suns at Metricon Stadium on Thursday night.

Porter arrived at the Bulldogs in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft, selected with pick 74 from the Gippsland Power.

He has had to bide his time for a debut, but gets his chance in his third year as a Bulldog, on the back of a consistent 2019 VFL season and scratch match form this year.

He follows in the footsteps of Cody Weightman, Louis Butler, Laitham Vandermeer and Ben Cavarra as debutants this season.
