Aussie Rules: Best yet to come says Hinkley

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley is pleased to have recovered from a horror start to the season and still believes their best is yet to come.

Port are aiming for the top eight this season and have got their season back on track after losing the opening five games of the season.

Geelong setback

The Power slipped to a 35-point loss against Geelong on Saturday which snapped a four-game winning run, and they now sit 4-6 for the season.

Hinkley will take that after the start they had and he has been pleased with the response he has had from his players in recent weeks.

"We've recovered reasonably well," Hinkley said. "In the last four weeks we've been to Cairns, Hobart and Geelong. We've been able to get some wins that we needed but the reality is we weren’t good enough today."

"We've been good enough over the last month to win four out of five. We're going to have to keep doing that a fair bit if we're going to improve our season. We're right in the season. We've got hopefully our best football to come still."

Not good enough

Hinkley accepts that his side were not good enough on Saturday and it was the Cats that were “much better around the ball”.

"We didn’t play that well," he added. "We were lucky enough to be in front at half-time but there wasn’t much of the game that we enjoyed other than a few minutes in the second quarter. The team who had the better physicality around the ball won the game."
