 Under different types of conditions Port sais it was 'important to hydrate' before the game as he knew it was going to be a fast game on a hot day. During the game Port prioritised 'working' his 'angles' as this was such an open game. Overall he believes this was a 'good standard of footy' and was delighted to be selected. Congratulations Jacob Port.
