A really solid win, where the Borough really could have won by a hell of a lot more had we kicked accurately.

I haven't checked possession counts, but Mark / Burraburger pointed out inside 50s in the first quarter alone were 17 to 8, and tackles were 25 to 7 our way.  

We had a heap of the ball, but across the board shots were going astray with a slight breeze to the northern end.

The new facilities at Werribee are first rate, and put Port and most other clubs to shame.  They had a heap of staff working at all the kioks, bbqs, and upstairs in the function rooms which have a clear sweeping view of the ground.

The game being a 3pm start, meant that the game finished with the lights on from after half time, and I have to say, unless its MCG quality lighting, my eye's struggle in the poorer lighting which left me squinting for most of the the last quarter, the yellow Sherrins don't get used at Port two often (except at Grand Finals :) 

I thought Lange,Rivett, O'Sullivan, Isaac Conway and Lisle were in the top 5 bests for Port

Next week now looks as an absolute cracker, with Geelong molesting North Melbourne in the early game today, the Channel 7 game now looks like it may be between to top four teams in Round 11.

Yeah pretty good wrap up. I would ad Anastasio to that best list - he will be missed when on leave. Werribee has a fanastic set up.Good merchandise booth, after match band, meals, beer on tap, pre mixed drinks in a glass and very welcoming and friendly people (thanked us for sticking around and welcomes us back to the club if we wanted to go in the future). We stayed around for a couple of hours after the game. The only negative I can see is that the new social facilities are smaller than the old ones and perhaps a tad too small ?

Next week is a real test, many are saying it will be a game that proves if we are genuine contenders or merely pretenders !!!! COMMON PORT !
