Game notes: It’s weird to think a team sitting fourth on the ladder needs to prove itself as a premiership contender, but that’s the case with Port Adelaide. The Power (8-5, 135.4 per cent) are starting to earn a reputation as flat-track bullies having lost all four of their games against top-eight teams this season. That’s why Saturday night’s clash with the Tigers (sixth; 8-5, 111.7 per cent) is important. On the back of a dynamic five-goal performance from Robbie Gray, the Power cruised past Collingwood on the road last weekend. Consistency hasn’t been the Power’s strong suit – a win over the Tigers would be the first time they’ve won three in a row since round 20-23, 2015. The Tigers did just enough to dispose of Carlton last weekend. They’ve also won three out of their past four, but need a big scalp to continue their momentum.
Mottsy’s Tip: Power by 30
