Doubt it Digs, round one is next week for Melbourne, whereas it's three weeks away for Port.
It's by no means a excuse. I have seen many a side do well in preseason only to look ordinary during the season and vice versa, therefore I strongly believe that preseason results are not a great indicator of how a season will pan out. This result will not worry too many and all of Port Melbourne and surrounding districts will still have plenty of faith that the mighty Borough will finish in the top 4 in season 2017.

I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN,
I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED,
I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Melbourne seconds not casey. Springvale are like preston. Would have had the majority of melbourne senior and fringe players at a guess. Colin Garland out for the year after getting injured. Result will be different when the two teams meet in season proper especially at north port oval. Practice games are just that
Not fussed about the results, as long as we come out of it with no injuries
Its worth remembering Port were beaten by Frankston last year in a practice match.
If my memory serves me correctly last year Sandy beat Box Hill by 20 goals in a practice match. The following week, round 1, Box Hill beat Sandy by 10 goals. Practice match results mean absolutely nothing!!!
Spot on kh. Practice matches are just that practice matches.
Also pratice for field , goal, & boundary umpires, time keepers, interchange stewards, score board attendants, time keepers runners. water boys/girls and so on
Went down to sandy, pretty disappointing i thought, only pre season i know but still a pretty poor showing
What sort of team did they put on the park though? I noticed that a few players that are expected to play in the firsts were playing in the seconds.
I think that the next match will be more indicative of what players we will be playing in round one and throughout the season.
