Preview

One of the more intriguing match-ups of the round, the Power and the Eagles will go head-to-head. Fifth v sixth on the ladder, both teams will be making a push to find, and consolidate, a place inside the top four.

Port Adelaide have been playing a tough and exciting brand of football. The masterstroke of putting Robbie Gray forward has paid instant dividends for the Power. He has kicked 9.8 over the past two games.

It is still unclear as to what to make of West Coast. They once again have proven their strength at home, but whether they are a genuine contender for the premiership is unclear. This will be a good test in a hostile environment.

These two teams are very tough to split. However, home ground advantage to the Power gives them the slight advantage.

Tip: Power by 7
