|V/AFL Clubs||Port Adelaide|
Kane Cornes commenced his senior football with Glenelg before following older brother Chad to Port Adelaide, where he made his AFL debut in 2001. Of smaller stature and lighter frame than Chad he has inevitably tended to be used differently, at first mainly as a 'run with' defender, but more recently across centre or on the ball. He was one of the Power's best players in their 2004 grand final win over Brisbane, and the following year was included in the AFL All Australian team for the first time. He made the team again in 2007, the same season that saw him claim the John Cahill Medal as Port's best and fairest player. He won the Medal again the following year and once more in 2010. By the end of the 2011 season, he had played 223 games for Port, fifth on the Power's all time list.
