The Borough at full strength.  No excuses for what will be a thrilling contest.  Can the Borough come out with the same intensity as last week?  Bloody hell I hop so.


C. Searle back after that extensive bruising that was initially thougth to be a break is all class.  Can Jolley return after such an injury interruoted season.  Can't wait.

With Footscray being the home side, I wonder if Port Melbourne will be forced to wear the 'clash strip'?

I was a little suprised by the Jolley inclusion - not because of lack of ability as he is all class but lack of recent game time and match fitness. I wonder how much of a run he will get.

Yes we will be in the clash jumper this Saturday but we will be back in our rooms.

I'll be there both days and cheering for both the borough and the bees. Wet ground will suit port against Footscray and definitely werribee against Essendon. Go the vfa teams !!

Another home final as the lower ranked team. Must be tough to be Port Melbourne.

Looking good (even in the clash jumper). Footscray may rue those missed chances early.

What a win! It wasn't pretty but boy was it enjoyable.

Next week's game against Richmond will be another bewdy. Can Port make it all the way the big one at Princes Park? I believe that if we continue to play the sort of footy we have in the past two weeks we are a genuine chance.

Another afl team bites the dust. Awesome win by the borough. What will James  motherhed and Gilligan afl cronies be writing. The bulldogs got also pumped by gws. Reckon the only thing they might say in the daily trash rag is about Essendon. Then again their afl team also got pumped. What's left for them to write ? Hopefully werribee can win tomorrow which will see 3 vfa teams left from last 4. I thought ports commitment and hardness was great. Khan haretuku took some good grabs. Similar conditions next week and effort by port they can roll Richmond too. Go the bees tomorrow. Enjoying this final series. To top it off grand final back at princes park.
