[quote=Mustang]It’s not impossible to build a case that Box Hill has a chance in this one.

This is 4th vs 5th from the home and away season, both finished with 12 wins. They played twice during the season with each winning their home game.

Since Box Hill defeated Port in round 15; Box Hill has won 6 in a row while Port’s form is patchy at best (3 wins / 4 losses).

Certainly playing it at TEAC Oval gives Port a big advantage, however, Willy proved 2 weeks ago that Port aren’t invincible there and Box Hill would have gained confidence from playing the ground well against Geelong.

Both will be sweating on the fitness of key players, Kenna for Box Hill and Pitt for the Borough.[/quote]
Mustang dont know how we would be sweating on the fitness of pitty he hasnt played since the werribee game,quite a while ago

Get to a TAB on your way home from work tomorrow and take a multibet Port into the crows at odds of 105/1. Just checked the odds.
If you put a fiver on it you would have a decent collect of $525. Gives you more than a bit of interest.


VFA is this the odds for this week or the Premiers 2009????

Yze has been named. I can't believe he wasn't rubbed out for the head high contact on Pods last week.

Premiership odds
Port is $15 into the crows who now have firmed into $6.50


Just checked the teams for sunday and Port look pretty strong. Apart from the 2 Delucas we are pretty much full strength. The forecast has changed to 19 and rain for sunday so there is no need to go in over tall.

Pitt named on the bench is an interesting choice. He hasnt played seniors for well over a month and only snuck in 1 reserves game in which he pulled up very sore Im told.
Do Port take him into the game and give him limited game time hoping he can snag a few goals???

Id like to know Northports opinion but my bench would be Schultz, McLaren, Raymond and Pitt(if fit) with Sengstock next in line if Pitty dosent come up.

It looks like our side has more leg spped in it than last week which is much needed against a fairly pacy Box Hill side.
Mclaren would have to play wouldn't he? He might be out of form this year, but Fanning can't ruck full time all day. Mclaren also adds an extra tall for our forward line. Big hole left without Arch since he was injured against Willy.
Anybody know what's up with Fabian? Is he injured as well?


Ive heard McLaren, Raymond and Silver out. David Pitt apparently playing. Pinwell and Robbins the other inclusions.
