Game notes: This clash between fourth (Port Adelaide) and 13th (Collingwood) promises to be much closer than their ladder positions suggest. The Power have conceded the fewest points in the competition and are second for scoring, but they are only two games (and considerable percentage) clear of the Pies. Despite injuries to key players, the Magpies have improved significantly over the past five weeks – a period in which their only losses were by three points (against Greater Western Sydney) and four points (Melbourne). Another loss here would virtually extinguish Collingwood’s slim finals hopes. Meanwhile, in-form Port Adelaide runners Ollie Wines and Brad Ebert will be hoping for another dominant performance from 200-game ruckman Paddy Ryder in his big duel with Brodie Grundy. They’ll have their hands full against Pendlebury, Treloar & co.
Thommo’s Tip: Port by 12 points
