Game notes: This is a huge chance for both sides to show whether they can seriously challenge for the top four. The Power are absolutely flying after comprehensive wins over Carlton and Brisbane Lions in the past fortnight. The Power’s backline has been outstanding, conceding the least amount of points in the competition, while they also have plenty of weapons in attack. The Eagles will be desperate to shed their reputation as flat-track bullies. Victories away from fortress Subiaco have been few and far between, but they did get back in the winner’s circle with a dominant victory against cross-town rivals Fremantle last weekend. The Eagles have an impressive record at Adelaide Oval having beaten the Power in their last two visits to the venue. The midfield battle will be sensational, while the Power’s young defenders have a tough challenge in shutting down Eagles star Josh Kennedy.
Thommo’s Tip: Port by 1 point.
