JOE Medew-Ewen's breakout Victorian Premier Cricket wicket-taking form could translate into scalps in the South Australian Cricket Association.
The Port Fairy export has joined Port Adelaide. His Melbourne-based club Northcote, currently adhering to coronavirus lockdown measures, is yet to hear a start date on its 2020-21 competition.
Dad Brian Medew said his son, 23, flew to Queensland on Monday where he will quarantine for two weeks before jetting to Adelaide.
He is coming off a career-best First XI season with Northcote which netted the spinner 33 wickets. He made his top-tier debut in the final round of the 2018-19 season, taking five wickets.

Brian, who coaches Port Fairy's division one side, said Joe "had been offered a contract from Port Adelaide".
"The idea is if premier cricket (in Melbourne) gets going before Christmas he'll be back then," he said.
Brian said Joe could do "some net bowling for the state sides" while in South Australia.
"I think in this game you've got to take your opportunities, he got a phone call from them (Port Adelaide) and negotiated all that and I think you have to take every opportunity you can get because opportunities are few and far between these days," he said.
