Very poor day at the office for the Borough. Just did not look switched on from the start. To their credit, Preston played the ground extremely well with short controlled kicking into the wind, and some of the best long goals from outside 50, I have seen for a little while.

Bones report just capped off a rubbish day, that hopefully will sting the Borough back into action against the Cats next week.

I thought Dalton and McGrath were the two standouts for Port. Sicpione performed well on debut.

I'll be in a better mood to post during the week !

A few things stunk yesterday, Port's performance, the ground and the umpires. Port did not seem to be there to play an where pulled apart by Northern. With the wind in the first quarter Port did not do enough with only 5 goals. Northern played the ground better and where the better team on the day, well done Bullants.

Port missed the run of Batsanis. I think it is time for Mullins to have a run in the two's to get some form back. Does anyone know what is wrong with Pitt? He would have been good yesterday in defense.

Bring on the Cats next week.

Sounds a bit like Mick Malthouse.
Time for all Port supporters to take a deep breath.
There's a long long long way to go.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

A big effort from the young Bullants team. Unfortunately it also shows their inconsistency: last week they just lacked the spark to get them over the line. This week everyone contributed well.
Also a big effort from the Bullant 2nds, a team of dwarves if there ever was one. They played very encouraging football to beat a team much higher rated than themselves.
