Port Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs Preview and Prediction

Port Adelaide was in cruise control against the Demons, showcasing their scintillating ball movement which kept the Demons wide open.

A particular highlight was the work done off the ball, restricting Melbourne from any ball movement through the middle of the ground, forcing them to kick It long down the line.

Port Adelaide don’t need to improve on much from last week, after a good all-round performance that saw them keep their spot-on top of the ladder.

Travis Boak played well against Melbourne, finishing the match with 25 disposals, eight clearances, nine score involvements and a goal.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs were extremely poor against the Tigers losing the match by 41 points.

The Bulldogs succumbed to the Richmond pressure and couldn’t get the game on their terms, eventually being behind at the main break by 40 points.

The Western Bulldogs will desperately look to improve their disposal efficiency and forward ball movement from last week if they have any chance of getting the four points.

Macrae starred in his milestone game, finishing the match with a whopping 37 disposals, seven score involvements and four clearances.

If last round was any indication of what could happen on Monday, then the Power will run over the top of the Bulldogs.
