Port were 3-2 against aligned sides this year but certainly agree they're a step behind the good teams. Over the past two years they are something like 4-17 against the top eight from each season, that has to be a concern.
On Sunday they didn't come ready to play and that first quarter with the wind cost them any chance. They didn't really have any answers in the patches where they weren't controlling clearances.
Still, a similar lineup and less injuries next season will give them a genuine top four chance, they were only one game out this year.
Port were outplayed yesterday but were ok in patches. The zebras were far more polished and direct. Disappointing day for the borough with both teams losing. The zebras have to refocus against the seagulls who will be on the warpath after an ordinary day against the pies. Interesting to see the betting on this game. Sandringham should be favorites on the weekends performances but the seagulls will start the favourite at a guess.
Any truth in the goss that Haretuku is looking elsewhere for next season ??
Also a GREAT coach like Garrry should know that to go into finals with injured players is flirting disaster !!
We might be from the bush. but we ain't green
Geez i hope not, was probably our best player this season
Haven't heard that whisper. But rumours around that another player who played a lot of senior footy at Port over the past two seasons may be heading to local footy.
Don't think many Sandy supporters thought that we'd win. I went to the game expecting to lose by around 5-6 goals. Sandy had lost 6 out of the last 7 games. But apart from the game at Casey, we weren't getting flogged in games losing by around an average of 20 or so points. Even the game at Sandy V Williamstown where we could only manage 6-22 for the game, still only lost by 24 points.
So while the form hasn't been winning form, at least we weren't getting beaten by big margins.
Very pleased with the Sandy listed players on Sunday. A couple who had only played one or two senior games this year came in and did well. Taylor Grace and Mitch Wilkins really stood up. Elliot Le Grice played the best game I've seen him play in a Sandy jumper. Jack Noone completely blanketed Sam Dwyer. Kade Answerth played 3 games for Port last year as 23rd player had a blinder
The Port player who stood out for me after watching the replay was Brody Mihochek. Could be a chance of getting drafted. I know Pinwill is a very aggressive player but he gave away a couple of 50 metre penalties at crucial times which were costly.
Williamstown this week. Who knows what Sandy will bring. Hopefully it's something like we played against Port. If we do, then we're a chance of beating Willy. Was sitting next to Aaron Siposs for a while and it looks doubtful that he'll play. But last year after one game he left Sandy in an ambulance but played the next week.
Sandy. The most successful club in the past 30 years
Well NorthPort it is the silly season after all !! There'll be a lot more rumours going around before we kick off again.
Hope all you Port boys are siting down !!
Did hear a murmur over the weekend that Garrry could be on the move.
Does he have a contract for 2017 ??
Is he keen to go again ??
Have Port had enough & looking for a fresh start ??
He's got another year left, but I've heard maybe there's a good job offer from up north? You wouldn't think Port would stand in the way of that if Gary were keen to pursue it.
Maybe just gossip at seasons end but where ther's smoke there's cod !!!
