So.....Brisbane next week?

Getting a little tired of Roos' excuses, so hope to hear something different today.

Even if it's just getting into the players... I'd like to see that actually.

Good game by Russian by the looks of it.

A shame that Gawn is on fire.

Perhaps Grimes and Spuddernaut could come in for (the not quite ready, but I like them) Stretch and Harmes?

Yeah, its kind of sad that all of those players could easily be considered best 22 and they sit on the sidelines.

Casey Scorpions 1.4.10 4.6.30 8.8.56 10.9.69

Port Melbourne 0.1.1 2.4.16 2.6.18 2.8.20

The heavens opened up in the morning and the rain just kept pounding in buckets. It was so relentless, so heavy and so bitingly cold that they had to turn on the floodlights and even then it was difficult for the hardy spectators who made it to the ground and clearly even more difficult for the players.

In those conditions it was perhaps inevitable that Casey with 15 AFL listed players and by far the bigger-bodied of the two teams was going to triumph over Port Melbourne.

The two teams met earlier in the Round 5 game at North Port Oval that was closely fought for three quarters before the Borough prevailed but this time they were strangled by the strong tackling of the Scorpions. It was a low scoring affair early with Matt Jones the only goal scorer in the opening term but Port fought back late in the second quarter to get to within two points before goals to Viv Michie and Ed Morris just before half time gave the Scorps the break they needed.

The rain was torrential after half time and Port was completely shut down by strong tackling in the mud and the slush. The game was stop-start and shocking as a spectacle but Casey always had someone who could convert and, as a consequence, slid its way to a 49 point win that consolidated its position in the VFL top eighth.

The Casey rucks led by Mark Jamar and Jake Spencer relished the wet conditions and had the lion's share of the hit outs. They gave their on ball division an armchair ride with Viv Michie and Aidan Riley relishing the hard going. Jack Grimes put in a pleasing performance which included some strong tackling which set the scene for his possible return to AFL ranks in the near future.

Otherwise, there was not a great deal to take from the game other than that one could not accuse any of the players from taking a backward step when the going got tough.

In the end the perfect storm provided a perfect outcome for the home team.

Casey's next outing is to Visy Park on Saturday to take on the lowly Northern Blues, a game not to be taken lightly after the team succumbed to the equally poorly performed North Ballarat a few weeks ago.

Spuddernaut has very underwhelming numbers.

Still reckon Newton has a place in our best 22.

Bit of talk going around that we are in the race for Prestia from GC

Some supporters treating it as gospel but seems to be based on nothing more than the fact that he supported the dees as a kid

That and the 'my family friend went to school with someone in Dion's year level and he thinks it's a done deal' type of bullshower

Hey lads, fair to say Mitch White is a fair way from AFL footy at the moment? Looking for a cheap defender that won't play in SC in order to emg loophole and you boys have the most Snday games remaining. Thanks lads!
