In honour of the Crow’s late coach, today’s Showdown medal will by named for Phil Walsh and the teams will briefly set aside their animosity by running through a shared banner pre-game. Expect both teams to then crash in from the opening bounce as they fight to keep their season alive.
Port showed spirit in overcoming the Pies last week but they are coming from so far back that they must simply keep winning. The loss of Jaspar Pittard will be felt, with Nathan Krakouer and Aaron Young returning to the side.
Adelaide started well against West Coast but fell away as the game went on. They will be better for the run and they’ll be motivated by the knowledge that a win today will allow them to return to the top 8.
Thommo’s tip: Port by 6 points.
