WARRNAMBOOL will regain Travis Graham for this week's clash with Camperdown, adding another dimension to the Blues' forward line which had Jason Rowan as its focal point on the weekend.
The star forward slotted 14 goals in Saturday's 31.13 (199) to 8.3 (51) victory over Port Fairy at Gardens Oval, with winning coach Scott Carter pleased with his side's consistency.
"Even though we've had a good start to the year, we haven't really been able to string four good quarters together," he said.
"On (Saturday), we were able to maintain our work rate for the whole four quarters."
The Blues will be hoping for a similar performance against the Magpies next weekend, when they will welcome back Graham and possibly the versatile Sam Cowling (groin), who will be tested during the week.
After a 9.2 to 4.0 opening term on Saturday, Warrnambool opened up a 32-point lead at the first break.
"I thought Port Fairy got off to a good start," Carter said.
"It was a free-flowing contest in the first quarter and it was a day where our ball use was very good."
The delivery from Timmy Hunt and twins Angus and Nick Chirnside into Rowan was effective, allowing the forward to have a huge impact.
"He took a lot of strong one-on-one marks and he led very well for the ball," Carter said.
"He kicked 14 and he gave away a couple (to teammates) from 20 metres out, then a few of the boys pinched some more off him by playing on when he had a free kick."
Rowan, who sits on top of the league goalkicking leaderboard after four rounds, helped the Blues stretch out their lead at each break to 64 points at half-time and 102 points at the last change.
Despite the match being a blowout, Carter who said he was impressed with the Blues' younger brigade of players highlighted Port Fairy's persistence.
"They've got a lot of young guys who are still learning," he said.
"They never threw the towel in."
Seagulls coach Bernie Harris could not be contacted for comment yesterday.
Port Fairy has another tough assignment next weekend, taking on reigning premier South Warrnambool.
