Port Coach Ken Hinkley VINDICATED, Says Ollie Wines

Apr 26, 2019


Port Adelaide co-captain Ollie Wines agrees Ken Hinkley has been vindicated following the club’s stunning away victory over West Coast last weekend.

FIVEaa’s David Penberthy put it to Wines on Friday:

“There’s always been that hardcore of Port fans who talk about how long Ken’s been there and has he got the results and all that, but it felt to me like aside from the ways the players turned out it was a real vindication of his work as coach last Saturday.”

OLLIE: “Yeah definitely."

"A few of the moves he made and particularly the way he prepared us, which has been done again this week, was top notch," Wines said.

“The buck stops with the senior coach so they’re usually the first ones to go and always the first under pressure. Kenny does put up with a lot but he backs us in every week.

“It was as pleasing for us to win as to see how well a team coached by him could play interstate.”
