Port Adelaide vs Adelaide Preview

The Power fell out of winning ways against the Lions, in a heavy 49-point defeat.

Port Adelaide’s loss still managed to see them stay in the third spot, with Ken Hinkley’s side eager to prove themselves after a heavy defeat to premiership contenders Brisbane last time out.

Travis Boak will return to the side after his absence last week with a quad injury. He will aid the Power’s inside 50 efficiency of 34.5%, as the Power look to be more creative going forward.

You can expect the Power to play with physicality and extra passion after the prison bar guernsey controversy in the previous week.

Meanwhile, the Crows were disappointing in their 67-point loss at the hands of the Giants.

Adelaide kicked their lowest score of the season, only managing a mere 39 points against 11th placed GWS. The Crows were lacklustre, However Taylor Walker added to his goalscoring tally with two majors. An interesting match-up between Walker and Tom Jonas awaits, although you may see Aliir Aliir go to him at stages throughout the match.

Matthew Nicks’ side was dominated in the midfield, losing the clearances 17-41, and although Port Adelaide isn’t one of the best clearance teams in the competition, it will play a large part in the outcome of the result, with the majority of their score conceded against the Giants coming from clearances.

The Crows will want to seek revenge on their meeting last season when the Power embarrassed them by 75 points.

Since 1997, the Power and Crows share the ledger at 24 wins-a-piece, and I believe it will be the Power to make it 25 in a convincing triumph in front of a large crowd.

Power vs Crows Team News

The Power will see the return of Travis Boak after his minor injury, whilst some impressive form in the SANFL might see Riley Bonner or Jarrod Lienert come into the side.

Adelaide will most likely make a couple changes with Chayce Jones, Josh Worrell and Darcy Fogarty being the frontrunners for an inclusion.

The two sides last met in Round 2 last season which saw the Power win by 75 points.
