The Power will be favoured to go 3-0 for the first time since 2013 when they host an improving Lions outfit. Ken Hinkley’s men put the footy world on notice with a brilliant second-half performance last Sunday to stun Sydney at the SCG for the second year in a row. Ollie Wines and Sam Powell-Pepper set the tone in the midfield, Charlie Dixon admirably filled in for Paddy Ryder in the ruck, and evergreen utility Justin Westhoff was everywhere. The Power’s youngsters are developing nicely, and their experienced recruits are playing their roles. The Lions won’t be a pushover if their gallant performance last Saturday against Melbourne is any indication. Chris Fagan is seeing positive signs from his rebuilding side, but the next step in their evolution is finishing off the job. A historic win at Adelaide Oval – the Lions’ first in six attempts – against a premiership contender would certainly be a feather in their cap.
Thommo’s Tip: Port Adelaide by 66 points
