Port Melbourne will take on 11th-placed Richmond at Punt Road Oval on Saturday afternoon. Due to ground conditions at ETU Stadium, the match which remains a Borough home game will now be played at the Swinburne Centre.
Oscar Roberts will make his debut for the Borough, coming from Caulfield Grammarians and also Port Melbourne Colts Junior. Making way for Roberts to debut is captain Harvey Hooper, who will sit out the final two matches of the season from suspension. Anthony Anastasio will take the reigns as skipper against Richmond and Footscray.
With finals now out of the equation, the Borough will hope to put on a strong performance against the Tigers who are still vying for a finals spot. The match will also be played in conjunction with PanKind as the team #PlayinPurple, wearing purple socks to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.
