Vice captain Ollie Wines says the current line up is the best Port Adelaide team he’s played in.

“Definitely,” Ollie told FIVEaa on Friday. “Part of that is our maturity.”

“We’ve come along way, we’ve got a few more games under our belt and then obviously we’ve added some more experience with these guys that have come from other clubs at the end of last season.

“As a midfield group particularly we’re very confident in each other to execute our structure, to be on the same page at stoppages. I guess that leads to playing good football.

“We’ve added a lot of guys new to the group probably over the last three to four years, not just the guys this year but Paddy Ryder, Charlie Dixon, guys coming from other clubs. That doesn’t just gel over night -- these things take time.

“I think we’ve been able to tinker with our game plan and what we do to beat teams throughout the year and we’re just starting to really get it and I think it’s a good time to start realising that and all start clicking.

“There’s an opportunity to finish top two, top four and play finals.”
