It was so refreshing I managed to write some notes during the last 10 mins.


McCluggage Lyons Andrews BOG. especially the two mids who held up for Neale being out.
Ah Chee looked so comfortable up forward, and Adams really solidifying his spot.

Don't really know who played not well, McStay went a bit quiet, but by and by it was a really great team-effort.

Nice signs of Madden on debut, lovely speed. Prior also solid again, Dev too.

Robinson back to his best too.

Really liking the synergy (god I hate that word) between our forwards we're getting. leading up taking out their defenders, freeing up space and also taking the marks nicely

Some pretty bad misses, I wish we really buried them as we should have, but we're really building into the season nicely



I think it also has to be said Port were quite putrid, so we can't read into it that we're on top of the teams.

Great game. Really happy to see us pubish another contender with a nice % booster.

Harris was BOG for me. Set the tone early with great intercepting. Also best manning of the mark I've seen. Back to his best form

McCluggage and Lyons best in the middle. Class and grunt work that just set up beautifully in the middle.

Charlie back in form is great for football. Robbo was a huge during the middle. Loves wet weather football.

Maddens pace was great. Prior and Dev show a lot of promise.

Everyone else played a even role. Liked the tackling pressure. Back in the hunt

Nothing but impressive, let’s not underestimate that because we never let them in. I know they are out bunnies but that is a great win.

Satisfying. Confident to see we're building into the season on that, especially missing a few.

Great to see Harro back to playing like Harro. Even doing the good stuff on the mark and smothering. Great game from him.
Clugga all class.
A lot of very solid contributions. Very even team performance.

There's been a fair bit of discussion on here recently about why Payne should be played over Adams, despite him not even being currently fit. Adams last few games have really solidified why we targeted him. His intercept work is great, he outbodies his opponents, his straight line running is like a steam train and efforts like those in the 3rd where he poleaxed one player and beat another to give off the ball are things that Payne simply can not do currently. Loving that he's being able to get a nice run of games. Could end up seriously impressive.

It was odd the difference in physicality from last week to this one. Looks like we actually pulled up totally fine for it today, and fingers crossed we finished it out with nothing too bad (right?) they looked tired, but nothing major.

Thankful to port for just not having any edge today at all. Their fans would be frothing though, insipid at times.

great win.. Andrews back again.. Helped pressure from our mids caused random bombs.
Clugga BOG Lyons was great. Robbo was fantastic. Gave a vote to Starc thought he was super solid all our backline was great
58 times in for 4.14
Charlie found his form.. Like Joe up the ground.. Our forwards finding their grove.
McCarthy was great gave him a vote as well.
Birchall was super solid so too Rich.
Be interesting who goes for Dizzy next week, as Madden was good first up needs to get more games.
Easily could of give votes to Lyons, Zorko, Adams, Charlie, Joe, Dev, Birchall and AhChee
