Game Chat – Sydney v Port Adelaide

Written by Thommo on March 25 2017

Venue: SCG at 4:35pm AEST

Last Time They Met: R20, 2016, Sydney 14.16 (100) d Port Adelaide 4.9 (33) at the SCG

Game notes: The Swans enter round one as heavy favourites against Port at the SCG, considering when these two teams met at the venue late last year it was the Bloods that triumphed by 67 points. New captain Josh Kennedy leads a star-studded midfield division alongside fellow 2016 All Australians Luke Parker and Dan Hannebery, and that match-up with Port skipper Travis Boak, Robbie Gray and Ollie Wines should be pivotal to the result. The Power defence will have to find a way to shut down superstar Swan Lance Franklin, as well as Kurt Tippett and the returning Sam Reid, and if their midfield can’t put the clamps on the home side’s onballers, it could be a long night for Ken Hinkley’s men. At the other other of the ground, veteran Heath Grundy will have the big job on Power forward Charlie Dixon.

Thommo’s Tip: Sydney by 40 points.

        1. As someone who screwed up by not having Butler as emergency when attempting to loophole, yes yes I do have him on the ground.


    1. I decided to leave Darcy Cameron in my side for a bit of loophole action rather than bring Houston in after Butler’s 96 on Thursday. That enabled me to push Eddy to the bench. At least I got something right.
