Box Hill set the tone from the opening bounce, catching Port off guard early. They ran hard and made good position and the Borough looked very reactive for most of the day.

We will rule some opportunities lost, but the club should realise that it is a very tough task to play the Mustangs on their own ground. Something that as Port supporters we can take for granted (home finals).

My hopes of a Port v Willy grand final are now gone.

I wonder if Port had finished 2nd on the ladder might have seen a different result.

I though High Sandilands was clearly our best player, with a lot of players well below their normal standards.. Credit to Box Hill on that.

Slow starts have been in problem several times this year and is the key for opposition sides v Port.

What was the crowd like?

37 times Grand finalists
16 times premiers
21 times runners up - THE MIGHTY BOROUGH!

I'M PORT MELBURNE BORN,
I'M PORT MELBOURNE BRED,
I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
