Axed five had to pay price: Port coach

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley says axing five of his AFL players shows he’s lost patience, but not faith.

With the Power out of finals contention, Hinkley dumped vice-captain Matthew Lobbe and four others for Saturday’s home game against Greater Western Sydney.

“You can’t accept the way we played last week and unfortunately some of the boys have had to pay a price,” Hinkley told reporters on Friday.
