Game Chat – Sydney v Port Adelaide

Written by Father Dougal on April 1 2018

WHERE AND WHEN:  SCG, Sunday, April 1, 4.40pm AEST

SUMMARY: Port kick-started Sydney’s horror start to last year when they upset the Swans in the season-opener, but they’ll face a much better Sydney side on Sunday in what could be the match of the round. Lance Franklin’s eight-goal haul against West Coast last Sunday will give the Power defence some nightmares this week, but Charlie Dixon gives the visitors their own star key forward. With Jack Watts and Steven Motlop starting well at their new club against Fremantle and youngster Todd Marshall in the goals, the Swans number-one ranked backline won’t have an easy Easter Sunday. Robbie Gray’s inclusion is vital for Port, especially after the loss of Paddy Ryder (Achilles). Along with Ollie Wines, Travis Boak, Brad Ebert, and Sam Powell-Pepper, Gray gives his side a midfield outfit capable of matching it with the likes of Josh Kennedy, Luke Parker, Isaac Heeney and Zak Jones.

R1, 2017: Port Adelaide 17.8 (110) d Sydney 12.10 (82) at the SCG
R20, 2016: Sydney 14.16 (100) d Port Adelaide 4.9 (33) at the SCG
R14, 2015: Sydney 14.10 (94) d Port Adelaide 12.12 (84) at the SCG
R2, 2015: Sydney 14.8 (92) d Port Adelaide 6.8 (44) at Adelaide Oval
R20, 2014: Sydney 12.12 (84) d Port Adelaide 7.16 (58) at Adelaide Oval

Father Dougal’s Tip: Sydney by 24  –   Port look to be a lot better, but enough so to beat the Swans at home? Not expecting an upset.

  2. Made Buddy Captain this week , what more do i need to say!54 at half time 57 at three quarter time. hope he comes home a little bit.


  3. Huge turn around from Port. Can they keep it up?

    Parker and Heeney keeping their owners happy.

    I’ll be catapulting Rampe out of my team for a correctional trade. He was a last minute in before round 1 closed…


  4. Had four options for Captain this week , took VC off Dusty at last minute , went to cripps ,115 not good enough , almost went to Fyfe 120, thought i would take Buddy should at least crack the ton ,84 awesome . entirely my fault.


  5. Ended up with 1994 points , Titch ,T. Kelly and Roughy to come , hope i at least crack 2200 , first balls up for season , but it is round 2, had a good run so far.


  6. Have 2260 with only Kelly left to play. Considering how poorly I did last year, I can’t complain!

    PS. I can’t stand Port…


  7. Where did the scores go…?? Last year one guy, chumps or chompers or something had em all up in under a minute of each quarter finishing!! Get him back!
