Teams: Australia & Newcastle United
I went and saw Port play Essendon with my gf (she's a Power girl) in round one. Essendon were abombernible [sic]. Should've gone down by 100 points even though the weather was raining on and off and James Hird got 1000 possessions - and Port were without Francou, Primus, James, et al.
They're rubbish - although Murphy and Allan have been serviceable for them they should have never topped up and stuck to youth. The only real bright spot has been McPhee who looks a solid for this year's AA team - and should move into the midfield next year where he should shine.
