Former Scorpion David Robbins could return for the Borough after two week suspension, but Port will probably miss Luke Livingston who may be ruled out for the remainder of the season. Not sure of the media attention the game has attracted out at Cranbourne, but we should be looking for a crowd of between 2000 to 3000 if the St Kilda and Port Melbourne supporters make the trip. Casey Fields is a very open ground, so the weather could be a huge factor.

Question Ons,do Port run supporters buses to their away games? Willy have done so for years now,it helps the less mobile person get to the game wheres they may not be able to under their own steam. I know Port still have alot of older die hards who wouldn't have been to Cranbourne since the old Sunday School picnic days in the 1930s.

I used the bus in my younger days before I had a car but Iam going back 35 years ago. Go Borough!

I recall going out by supporter's bus the year that Traralgon played. It was a fun trip! Don't think there's been one since. I'm sure there'd be enough oldies/carless people to make it not too expensive.

Will be a good game, would like to see Robbins in, and it has been good to see Pitt in some good form, just quietly, I was much hoping to play Port MElbourne, rather then the Bullants/Bendigo, we seem to match up extremely well against the borough. However, I feel this one being closer than what our last few have been. Hopefully we can get off to a good start this weekend, our first quarters have been atrocious, and if the breeze is blowing, and Port win the toss, it is much more difficult to play catch up footy in a final. I think Port still have a lot to offer, and many have already written them off, remember they would have one of the most settled sides coming into finals (due to 12/10) however ours has been pretty consistant lately, particularly with a long list to choose from for a change. Looking very much forward to our first final since 2003, in which we got spanked by weribee i think (100 points or something) and of course the First ever VFL final at the 'feild of dreams'. :wink:

And as iceman says - first VFL final at Casey Fields. With a bit of luck, there will be a VFL final there every year as well as various other high profile matches (eg the Hawthorn v Essendon NAB Challenge Series match in March this year),as well as regional league finals. It's great for the local community to have such a high standard facility, and to get such quality matches played there, less than 2 years after it opened.

What a great game of footy, never much more than 2 or 3 goals the margin throughout the day. The Reserves got off to a great start holding on to outlast Werribee in a spirited game of footy. VFL Reserves best and fairest winner Sam Dwyer had another great game, while Dalton provided strong resistence down in defense. [b]Port Melbourne 4.4 7.10 11.12 15.13 (103) Werribee 1.6 2.6 8.9 12.13 (85)[/b] [i]GOALS:[/i] Port Melbourne: Kelly 3 Sutcliffe 2 Henshaw 2 Langford 2 Dwyer Gilham Monteath Plymin Peel Nixon Werribee: Kennedy-Hunt 3 Eddy Robinson Kenelley Penny McCormack Thompson Walsh Chisholm Wormald [i]BEST:[/i] Port Melbourne: Dwyer Dalton Sutcliffe Nayna Shaw Kelly Werribee: Kenelley Wormald Sheringham McCormack Eddy Lavars In the Senior game Port held on to post one of the best wins in recenet years. [b]Casey Scorpions 3.5 7.11 9.13 12.17 (89) Port Melbourne 1.5 6.8 11.10 15.12 (102)[/b] [i]GOALS:[/i] Casey Scorpions: Voss 2 Biagi Eddy Watts Rix Brooks Allen Carmody Unsworth Matthews Garrubba Port Melbourne: Hazell 3 Cotchett 3 Bonaddio 2 Nahas 2 Spriggs 2 Dukes McMahon Cain [i]BEST:[/i] Casey Scorpions: Panozza Harrison Geary Armitage Voss Brooks Port Melbourne: Spriggs McMahon Robbins Obst Baird Fanning Despite a tall forward line for the Scorpions, Port's back half performed well again providing a lot of run, using the ball well. Obst particularly in the last quarter was instrumental in securing the win, spoiling time and again and setting up rebound footy. Spriggs, and McMahon were outstanding in the middle, both of them winning the hard footy and delivering the ball well into the forward line. Up forward Tim Hazell has had perhaps his best season since joining the club, and his 3 goals were crucial to the result. Cotchett continues to put his body on the line, and his kicking for goal was good as well. Lots of highlights on the day, none better that a couple of Robin Nahas' freakish goals. Equal with those performances was Bonaddio playing like a small, getting past two defenders and nailing the goal on a tough angle. A hell of a lot of positives, some of which I will post more on later, but as Ghazi said after the game, to have both sides through to the second week of the finals is an effort that the club and the players should be extremely proud of.

Just too good. A credit to a team that doesn't have AFL listed players to call on. Well done to the Boroughs. Good luck for the rest of '07.

Merged thread: [quote="jasonborough"]With not many people giving us a chance the boys played four excellent quarters with a 13 point win against the more fancied casey.We also had livo out as well after coping a front on head high tackle the other week from a collingwood player.Livos out for the rest of the year. Congratulations to the twos on a good win against werribee.Lets bring on the burgers next week..[/quote]
