A RENEWED challenge is set — North Ballarat Roosters coach Gerard FitzGerald has called on his players to rebound strong in a bid to crack 'The Streak'.
FitzGerald says Port Melbourne's winning streak has to break some time and has rallied his players to try and snap Port's history-making charge next week.

The Selkirk Roosters were disappointed by a 52-point loss to Williamstown at home on Saturday, not helped in a fourth quarter blow-out.

But FitzGerald said there was a lot of positive signs in the match.

Port Melbourne at North Port Oval is the ultimate test for his players in their rebound.

'The Streak' is out to 25 consecutive victories.


unfortunately today wasnt to be the roosters turn to break ports run,after an even first half,port slipped right into first gear,and showed just why they are on top and will stay there,very strong performance with winners everywhere,26.10to12.10.With cain kicking 4 and sam dwyer 4in fact they had 16 different goal kickers,while the roosters battled hard against the odds a couple of young guns got a real taste of vfl usual billy driscoll played a lone hand up forward with 3 with a bit of luck could have had 6 or 7.the development team had a great tussle finally going down by11 points,which with the club decimated by injuries was a great effort ,these lads are not far away from stringing a few wins together,there is some talent there,so keep it up lads.knowing the spirit of the roosters they will fight back,when everyone is available,thats not a cop out as all clubs have there share of injuries.but port do look the goods,the side that beats them,will go a long way towards winning the flag.Arab

Nth Ballarat will be lucky to scrape into the eight on their current form.
