Brisbane vs Port Adelaide Preview

The Lions got a comfortable win against the Blues last time out by a margin of three goals.

Brisbane after a shaky start to the season, have won two matches on the trot for the first time this season against Essendon and Carlton. However, it has come at a price, with Brownlow medallist Lachie Neale having to have ankle surgery and will miss up to two months.

Although Neale hasn’t been at his best recently, it is still a huge blow for the premiership contenders. Neale has been the best centre clearance player for the Lions this season, but this allows Zac Bailey, Lincoln McCarthy and Hugh McCluggage to be given some more midfield minutes.

Similarly, the Power cruised past the lacklustre Saints at home to continue their strong start to the season.

Port Adelaide has been one of the strongest sides so far this season, with only one loss coming against the Eagles away from home. The Power have risen $5 to be premiership favourites and currently sit third.

Ken Hinkley has got his side holding the ball extremely well, being ranked second in the competition. However, they will want to move the ball inside 50 faster with repeat entries in an attempt to isolate Charlie Dixon, who has found it tough this season, only just reaching double figures in goals.

Although the Lions have performed well in the previous two weeks, the Power have been hard to beat this season, so I think they could get the win in this one.

Lions vs Power Team News

The Lions will have to make two changes with Lachie Neale and Darcy Gardiner suffering injuries against the Blues. Rhys Mathieson will come into the side along with a likely candidate Tom Berry. 

Sam Powell-Pepper was outstanding in the SANFL and could find his way into the side.

The two sides last met in Round 5 last season which saw the Lions win by 37 points.
