Preview

Port Adelaide were good in round one, really good. Fremantle on the other hand weren’t as impressive. The Power will want to back up their performance last week, while also protecting their home ground. Ross Lyon’s men need to bounce back before the pressure gets too high.

Nat Fyfe will improve every round after a year out with injury in 2016, while Cam McCarthy is likely to be the same. But this early on it would be unfair to expect them to perform at their highest level. The Power’s Sam Powell-Pepper earnt the first NAB rising star nomination last week, and it’ll be interesting to see how he backs up that great performance.

At home for the first time this year, and on a high from knocking off Sydney last week, Port Adelaide should topple the Dockers. It will be a good contest, but the physicality and attack on the football from the Power should be too much in the end.

Tip: Power by 21
