Port Melbourne's weaknesses were heavily exposed by reigning premier Geelong, which inflicted an 85-point belting on the former powerhouse at Simonds Stadium on Saturday.

The Borough's second successive loss leaves it outside the top four with Hawthorn's feeder team Box Hill and Geelong the top two teams at the halfway mark.

The Cats exposed Port's lack of speed at Etihad Stadium in last year's grand final and did so again on Saturday with some of the Borough's veterans left trailing behind their quick and talented opposition.

Cats coach Matthew Knights said he didn't have to go back to the tape of the grand final win to learn how to stop a team they rated as the benchmark. Instead, he looked at North Ballarat coach Gerard FitzGerald's team's mammoth effort to snatch a come-from-behind win over Port last week.
