Game notes: After impressive wins over Sydney and Fremantle to start the season, losses to premiership contenders Adelaide and Greater Western Sydney have stalled Port Adelaide’s momentum. The Power was competitive in both of its defeats against sides that will mount strong challenges for the flag before fading in the last quarter. The return of athletic ruckman Patrick Ryder from a one-game suspension will be a valuable addition for the Power’s midfielders to get first use of the ball. The rebuilding Carlton held its own with Gold Coast for the first half before being blown away in the third term. The Blues are aiming for three straight wins over the Power, but this is a much improved Port Adelaide side compared to the one that has missed the finals for the past two seasons. 

Thommo’s Tip: Port Adelaide by 30 points.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

  2. SPP, Doc ,Marchbank. and Pickett (Mid bench)

    Do me proud boys!

    Hope Fisher can reward those with the balls to go early.

    Personally I’m going left field. The SCT cup has sent me loco.

    97 flamingos….I’m coming for you.

  3. SPP vs SPS last field spot.

    Gotta go SPP surely? Two poor weeks but against GWS and Adelaide. SPS’s only score 60+ came in the rain, looks clear to me tonight.

    1. There’s worse trades but I’m not sure.

      Given his 1 good week/1 bad week it’s a bit of a gamble. No idea what to expect.

      If you need to avoid a zero you pull the trigger but I would probably hold otherwise and look for another alternative for Taranto. I would rather wait and have a look at EVW in DEF.

        1. Looking like a terrible call, sorry mate!

          This flu getting to me. Can’t believe I didn’t flick Pepper for Adams.

  5. From the first quarter, looks like Powell-Peppered-steak is cooked. Fumbles, turnovers… he’ll need a big next 3 quarters to keep his spot.

    Cripps is playing very injured. I know the blues have a young team already, but questionable whether he should be playing. Maybe plonk him at full forward, if anything.

  6. Polson sure starting off well. Sure could use another downgrade target up front. SPP slow but not much time on ground yet either.

  8. Polson, what a kid, that run down of SPP was phenomenal. Although we’ve seen him drop off, which isn’t a great sign.
    But good news, I saw Polsons first VFL practice match against the tigers, and it looked really similar… He seemed a little lost around the ground, had a great run down of Maric, but failed to dominate. Few weeks later he’s racking up the possessions, and contested at that.
    Hopefully we see the same from him in the next few weeks

    1. Thought about it hard all week and reversed my trades at the last minute.

      My reason that his high scores had come against Richmond, Melbourne, Essendon and Gold Coast…not the worst teams in the comp but hardly world beaters.

  11. SPP was tagging Cripps, not very well, was blocking him all night,might account for lack of points or his not that good

  12. Not really SuperCoach relevant this year, but Charlie Curnow is developing very, very nicely. He might just get a Rising Star nomination on the back of tonight’s performance.
