Game Notes: When these teams last met in round seven the Eagles were copping the blowtorch for an inability to perform at their best interstate, but now Port Adelaide is under fire. The Power are yet to beat a top-eight team in five attempts this season and have been labelled “pretenders”, which should make for a spicy clash at Domain Stadium on Sunday. Port dominated the previous meeting but couldn’t take advantage on the scoreboard, however the AFL’s second-highest scoring team will pose a threat to West Coast on its home turf. The Eagles have lost two of their past three at Domain Stadium, but are playing a stronger brand of football since the bye – with a renewed focus on pressure and intensity – and could be close to full-strength with star spearhead Josh Kennedy, skipper Shannon Hurn, Matt Priddis and Mark LeCras likely to be available.
Mottsy’s Tip: West Coast by 10.
