Game Chat – Port Adelaide v Greater Western Sydney

Written by Father Dougal on July 22 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Sunday, July 22, 4.10pm ACST

SUMMARY

One of the most important games of round 18 has been saved until last. The Power (fifth, 11-5) are aiming to keep in touch with the top two, while the Giants (seventh, 9-6-1) are back inside the top eight after last week’s thrilling two-point win over reigning premiers Richmond. The key for Leon Cameron’s men is continuing that momentum on the road against a Power side coming off its worst loss of the season – a nine-point defeat to Fremantle in Perth. The Power will be without last year’s All Australian ruckman Paddy Ryder (hip flexor), putting more pressure on Ollie Wines, Tom Rockliff, Chad Wingard and Sam Powell-Pepper in their midfield battle with Josh Kelly, Stephen Coniglio and Callan Ward. Toby Greene is the Giants’ X-factor in a forward line missing the suspended Jeremy Cameron and Jonathon Patton (knee). The Power will be desperate to show they are genuine premiership contenders, but the Giants also have finals on their mind.

FD’s Tip:  I want to say the Power will bounce back, but Ryder out and Greene in means tipping GWS by 6

    1. I had the times backwards! I just fixed it. Thanks for pointing that out. This has just not been my week!

      1. This is why I have had a longstanding policy of not using players who have been named as emergencies as loopholes. This is the first time I have ever broken that rule. I won’t be breaking it again.

        To make matters worse, the guy I benched (Tuohy) ended up outscoring Mihocek!

  2. I thought with Trengove (think that’s how you pronounce it) pulling out of the Port Adelaide Magpies game, Gray was a definite late change!

    So far so good, hope they haven’t rush him back if he’s not 100%, but I’m confident Hinkley isn’t like that normally!

    Here’s to Robbie going huge 🙂

  3. No problem….I was sweating a bit over that as well. Although sticking with Captain Danger has cost me many League wins already……
