PORT ADELAIDE ruckman Scott Lycett will play his 100th game against Carlton on Sunday, but he'll be doing so with a black eye courtesy of Giants' big man Shane Mumford.
Lycett and Mumford showed off their physicality in last Sunday's match-up, and the Power big man hopes that won't be the last time they play each other.
THE LADDER Where is your team sitting?
"He's not that scary to me," Lycett said of Mumford.
"Hopefully he goes around next year so I'll be able to give him a couple back."
Lycett isn't carrying a grudge, but admits that when he copped a few stray limbs from Mumford he had no hesitation throwing his knee right back into the Giant's chest.
"I suppose in the ruck it's a bit different to every other position because you only have one direct opponent, so when something happens against you, you kind of take it personally," Lycett said.
THE FULL INJURY LIST Who is racing the clock?
The 27-year-old was picked up by West Coast in the 2010 NAB AFL Draft, and started his career behind Nic Naitanui before missing time with a serious shoulder injury.
While some of his other draft classmates are reaching the 200-game barrier, the 2018 premiership player is just happy he's made it this far.
"It's (playing 100 games) something that's pretty special to me and my family," Lycett said.
"I came from a small country town on the west coast of South Australia – the middle of nowhere pretty much in Smoky Bay.

"I'm stoked that I got to triple figures and hopefully I can keep building. Hopefully I'll get to 200 (games) one day."
The 102kg ruckman says his Power teammates are lucky they have to follow social distancing requirements, as there might have been an awkward moment post-game this weekend.
"Lucky the guys don't have to carry me off because I don't think they'd be able to," Lycett joked.
