Game notes: What was considered a foregone conclusion has suddenly turned into a danger game for Port Adelaide as it looks to resurrect its top-four aspirations. So impressive through the opening 10 rounds of the season, the Power suffered its first major setback with an embarrassing 70-point thumping at the hands of Essendon last week. That’s left the Power (6-5) in fifth place on the ladder, but equal with five other teams on 24 competition points. The Power cannot afford another slip-up, especially against a rebuilding Brisbane Lions side. The last-placed Lions (2-9) turned in their best performance of the season to snap a nine-game losing streak, beating Fremantle by 57 points last week. Lions midfielders Dayne Zorko and Dayne Beams are in wonderful form, but the Power’s physical pressure around the ground and slick ball movement will be hard to stop.
Thommo’s Tip: Port Adelaide by 36 points.
