Graham Cornes Has A Difference Of Opinion With Ken Hinkley

Feb 13, 2018


Graham Cornes says he was surprised to hear coach Ken Hinkley say defence would be the key to Port Adelaide’s 2018 plans.

“We definitely have a difference in philosophy,” Cornesy said on FIVEaa.

“I think most coaches will say you build a team from defence… your defence is the foundation.

“But you’re first instinct has to be get the ball, you’ve got to win the ball. You cannot win the ball with a defensive mindset. The second most important thing is to use the ball effectively.

“I’m not sure where defence comes into it… I reckon that’s about number three.

“I’ll back attack over defence on most occasions… I think it’s a dangerous concept to rank defence over attack.”
