Ken Hinkley speaks pre-match against of Port Adelaide’s clash against Geelong.
On playing Geelong in Geelong: “You have a good look at the teams who play here. Their last six they’re 3-3. We know our best football against them challenges them, as does theirs. I think we overplay the ground; we just need to play proper footy.”
On playing more attacking: ”Our model and preference is not that different than it’s always been. We like to be pretty aggressive with the ball when we have the chance. Unfortunately, we haven’t had many of those chances.“
On responding from 0-5: “I’m really proud of the club for the way we’ve handled that start. We played some footy that was OK. We led Brisbane by four goals at the ’Gabba. We weren’t terrible, but we had a 0-5 record, and we had to own it, and we stuck together. We’re certainly better than we were.”
Having Wines back at his best: “Ollie back in our team well and healthy made a difference. If I have got [a favourite] he’s pretty close. He’s such an important part of our team. Contested footy will never change in this game.”
