Port Melbourne: Tynan Gilmore Pinwill Dickson Wooffindin Noonan

From heading to Cranbourne in driving rain, to huddling in the stand it was a tough day to be a one of the Borough faithful.

In what was a slog, tough conditions against a good Casey line-up, the Borough struggled to impact the scoreboard, being held goalless for 3 quarters (1st, 3rd and 4th).

I'll post a few photos up from the game, but it got so dark out there, that the flood (aptly) lighting came on to try and shed some light on the game.

This was effectively an 8 point game, with Port looking to take Casey's spot inside the eight. The task becomes tougher now with the Borough having a few sides that will play in September away from home.

Still you've got to beat them to rightfully earn your place.

With a lot of experience and bigger bodies gone, conditions like today really found Port wanting. Full credit to Casey, they made the most of their opportunities today too.

Possibly the year that Saade Ghazi coached them to their one & only wooden spoon.

They haven't lost 3 in a row but have lost 4 of their last 5.

I agree with Wally, Port probably hasn't had such a poor run since 2006.

A very tough day at the office. Lowest score since 1906 is an indication of not jet the conditions, but also how outsized Port were again a bigger bodied side. It was only a few years ago when Port went through undefeated..playing with mature age bigvery bodied players that upset a few younger AFL draftee dominated sides. Interesting how the tables have turned so much in 2015.

And Richmond this week will be no easy beats either. Lots of defeats at home this year too is almost unheard of in recent years. Listening to Ayres post match, Chris Cain is some chance to return. Lange and Osborne also played in the reserves.
