Game notes: With the Power and the Saints both coming off losses, this is a crucial encounter as spots in the finals heat up. Question marks about the Power’s premiership credentials remain after their 23-point defeat to Melbourne last weekend. But with four of their last five games against teams outside the top eight, the fifth-placed Power (40 points; 132.1 per cent) are in a great position to return to the finals for the first time since 2014. However, what they are after is a top-four spot and a double-chance in the finals. These are the types of games they simply must win. It’s crunch time for the Saints (11th, 36 points, 96.7 per cent) with their season hanging in the balance. The Saints haven’t beaten the Power in six years and are also yet to return from Adelaide Oval with a victory.
Thommo’s Tip: Port Adelaide by 15 points
