Game notes: The Power were the surprise packets of the opening round of the competition with a superb victory over Sydney at the SCG. They hunted in packs and beat the Swans at their own game with a tough and tenacious brand of football. Senior players Travis Boak, Ollie Wines and Brad Ebert were outstanding, while Sam Powell-Pepper is the early favourite for the NAB AFL Rising Star. The key now for Ken Hinkley’s men is to back up that performance in front of their supporters in a game they will be expected to win. The Dockers were pretty ordinary against Geelong and will need to improve significantly if they are going to be any chance. Nat Fyfe will be better for the run after his long lay-off, while Stephen Hill, Shane Kersten and Cam McCarthy are still getting used to their new surroundings. It’s a huge challenge for the Dockers if they’re going to get their first win of the season.
Thommo’s Tip: The Power to roll on (unlike Hazelwood). Port by 35.
