DEFIANT Port Adelaide captain Travis Boak has slammed a detriment to Fremantle as “not acceptable’’ and vowed that a players will lapse from their bye week with renewed craving and prepared to conflict a second half of a season.

Boak pronounced a organisation hasn’t given adult on 2016, notwithstanding sitting dual wins and commission out of a tip eight, and that a players will ask questions of themselves and any other and “really demeanour in a mirror’’ before their subsequent diversion opposite Richmond during Adelaide Oval on Friday, Jul 1.

Boak denied Port had an temperament predicament though announced a players had let a tradition of a bar down with their tedious arrangement opposite a Dockers in a detriment that has put it behind a win-loss bill during 6-7 and severely shop-worn a finals hopes.

The Power players will be given 4 days off from tomorrow to Saturday to recharge their batteries — and recover their craving — before returning for training on Sunday.

“The biggest thing for us and what we’ve built ourselves on is a competitiveness and craving and that substantially on a weekend, from examination a game, it looked like Freo wanted it more,’’ Boak said.

“That was unequivocally unsatisfactory since that’s what Port Adelaide is built on — being unfortunate and hungry.

“That’s what we need to move and a players know that. We only need to make certain we’re consistent, unequivocally demeanour in a counterpart and come behind and know how we have to play.’’

The Power spent Monday in vital soul-searching mode with Boak declaring: “With a bye entrance adult we’ve got some things to speak about.’’

The skipper pronounced Port had dismantled a lot of a good work from a prior 4 matches when it thumped Melbourne and Collingwood and mislaid narrowly to top-eight sides West Coast and Western Bulldogs.

“To take a step behind like we did was unequivocally disappointing,’’ Boak said.

“So we’ve discussed what we design for a rest of a deteriorate as a personification organisation since a opening on a weekend wasn’t acceptable.

“Freo brought a feverishness and we weren’t means to compare it and that was a many unsatisfactory thing, that with so most on a line we weren’t means to take it adult to them. So we’ve got to ask ourselves what indeed happened? That’s a tough doubt we’re seeking and perfectionist of any other since during Port Adelaide we can't have a opening like that and people doubt a effort.’’
