Port Adelaide's Lachie Jones knows why he's a cult figure after just one AFL game.

"The hair ... the hair and the mo," he told reporters on Tuesday.

Jones, on his 19th birthday, made an accomplished AFL debut against Richmond in Port's two-point triumph on Friday night at Adelaide Oval.

But his mullet hairstyle and bristling moustache attracted as much attention as his 17 disposals.

"Pretty overwhelming," Jones said of the reaction.

"I didn't really expect the fame. I wouldn't call it fame yet, there's a lot of boys that are in front of me.

Man with the mullet Australia's top Masters hope

  Man with the mullet Australia's top Masters hope He's not your usual clean cut golfer but Australia's mullet-flaunting young gun Cameron Smith is a chance to win The Masters.Less than five months after world No.1 Dustin Johnson claimed his first green jacket, the world's best golfers are back at Augusta from tomorrow morning (AEDT) going at it again for the sport's most prestigious prize.

"But yeah, pretty overwhelming."

The backman, born in the farming town of Bute on South Australia's Yorke Peninsula, was given a raucous cheer from Port fans when he came off the interchange bench.

"I couldn't help but notice when I ran on, a bit of a roar," he said.

"It probably just shows the supporter base at Port Adelaide and how invested they are in the club, how much of an interest they take."

Among the first-gamer's first tasks was to stand Richmond's Brownlow medallist and triple Norm Smith medal winner Dustin Martin.

"Daunting," Jones said.

"I had a little bit of a 'welcome to the league' moment when he fended me off and kicked a goal.

Belief in Ballarat can fix lazy Lions

  Belief in Ballarat can fix lazy Lions The Brisbane Lions are living perilously close to the edge ahead of their Round 4 clash against the Western Bulldogs. If not for Zac Bailey’s after-the-siren goal, Brisbane would have been the team most spoken about in the media this week. Of course it was only the week before that the team would have beaten Geelong if not for a controversial decision, which would have left them sitting with two wins after three rounds. Yet we as a sporting community are far too reactive to results, and the win over Collingwood shouldn’t have let Brisbane fly under the radar.

"But I was probably a little bit naive. I was sort of excited to be in that position.

"At least now I can say I have done it and hopefully it doesn't happen again."

Jones, a lifelong Port fan, was linked to the Power through the Next Generation Academy scheme because of his Indigenous heritage on his father's side.

Port selected Jones with pick 16 at last year's national draft with the solidly-built half-back's mullet copping some stick from coach Ken Hinkley.

"He is probably the biggest critic at the club of everyone's hair cuts, could be a short back and sides and he'd still critique you for it," Jones said.

"But you just take that and accept it and don't really let it bother you, just move on.

"It will stay for now, obviously received a bit of a following from it.

"It will stay for a while at least."

Eddie Jones will REMAIN as England head coach .
A meeting of the RFU board on Tuesday ratified the conclusions of a report from a 'debrief panel' which made several recommendations, but not regime change. A statement issued from Twickenham firmly declared the on-going backing for Jones within English rugby's corridors of power - as repeatedly forecast by Sportsmail.Bill Sweeney, the union's chief executive, said: 'We were all disappointed to finish fifth in the Six Nations. Our track record and results under Eddie meant that we, the players and our fans had much higher expectations.
