Emotional Watts' stunning revelation after win


//

Port Adelaide star Jack Watts has given an insight into what was a tumultuous off-season for him after his side's upset win over Melbourne at the MCG.

Westhoff was among the Power's best, finishing with 22 disposals and nine marks in the team's 12. 15. (87) to 9. 7. (61) win over the Demons on Saturday afternoon.

Speaking to Fox Footy after the shock result over his former side, an emotional Watts explained what the win meant to him.

"It was a really tough few months to be honest," Watts said.

"After those last few months, that day is just incredible. What a fight by the boys. It's pure relief.

"I had weeks where I didn't want to get out of bed (and) I've never ever experienced anything like that.

"I'll cop more s--t from people saying I'm no good at footy for a thousand years compared to what I went through over the past few months."

After beginning the game with the first three goals of the contest, the Demons paid a hefty price for the absence of star recruit Steven May as Port Adelaide forward Justin Westhoff finished with five goals.

With four debutants and another two playing their first game for the club, there was plenty to like about Ken Hinkley's side.

After they conceded the first three goals of the game, the Power composed themselves to win their season opener.

Scott Lycett outworked Max Gawn while Melbourne talls Tom McDonald and Sam Weideman had no impact.

Rockliff, Travis Boak and Sam Powell-Pepper were relentless at the contest but the Power changed the game on the outside.

On a humid day in Melbourne, the Demons couldn't go with Port's runners; the as the visitors finished with 93 more uncontested possessions.

The final margin was a fair one but for much of the afternoon, the teams remained within a couple of goals of each other.

First-gamer Zak Butters gave the Power their first lead in the second quarter with back-to-back majors.

Jake Melksham and Christian Salem were terrific for Melbourne as they won the lead back in the third term but Simon Goodwin's team couldn't make it stick.

With the match in the balance in the final term, Nathan Jones dropped a sitter on the 50-metre line before ex-Demon Jack Watts denied the hosts a major with a last-gasp mark.

Twenty seconds later the ball was in Westhoff's hands in the goal square for a momentum-halting goal that allowed Port to run away with the win.
