    Solid win. Defence needs to be better next week.

    Robbie, Wines, Wingard, Rocky, Polec and Motlop were in my bests.

    Boak has to sharpen up. He was awful tonight, and will only survive because he's captain. We need to think about the future beyond Boak.

    I know they lost Wood but it was noticeable how much better the forward line function when we camped Westhoff up forward with Dixon and Marshall.

    Jonas also pretty damn important to our backlines. A lot of the Bulldogs goals you feel Jonas would kill with his presence.

    Did anyone else hear the commentators say "Gowers" but think "Gowans" and then think "Fk you and your brother"!


    Anyway, good win.

    Wines massive again. Easily half the difference again, but only half.
    Just added another $50k/2 to his contract. :D

    Forward work far better . Lindsey is a must to stay in. Wingard midfield a must . great win .

    Hopefully Jonas will be okay for next week. We missed him.

    Solid win though.

    Rockliff looks like an old time Port player.

    We survived ok. Forward 50 still major problem.

    Ten goal win in the dead middle of the season is always acceptable.

    Credit to Voss, or maybe Scott Thompson, our midfield is better this year than it has been for a long long time.

    57 point win? That’s awesome! Definitely take that one, and we needed a bit of percentage too.

    Jacko the last Bulldog to leave the ground, I don’t think there was a single Port player who didn’t get around him after the game. The Dogs might be paying his salary now but he’ll always be a Port man.

    This is true. Keeping Boak out is a good idea as well. Such a liability. Forward 50 just needs improving bad.

    Wingard in the middle is the biggest difference to our team of a few weeks ago. He is all class and creates clearances all game.

    Did what we had to do

    Houston played a great game down back

    I thought we leaked a few cheap goals with the absence of Jonas

    Boak was terrible, completely void of any confidence

    We won which was great

    Clurey a little untidy without Jonas' support
    Houston looked like a natural forward slotting that from 50
    Boak and Ebert are on borrowed time, with Wines and Rocky showing what the future looks like
    Wingard looking like he's finding form
    Dixon and Westhoff are just a few straight kicks away from their best
    Polec's with franklin like goals

    lot's of improvement required but completely possible!

    Westhoff is good up forward because he moves around. It’s the same reason Sam Gray is quite prolific. Dixon and the others stand around like statues.
