WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Sunday, August 24, 7:20pm ACST
Barring a Gold Coast miracle at Geelong, both clubs will be spectators for the finals. The Power must beat the Bombers and hope the Suns can pull off a stunning upset of the Cats on Saturday to sneak into eighth. A season that started with so much promise has gone south quickly for the Power, who have lost five of their past six games. It’s been the reverse for the Bombers. After winning just two of their first eight, they turned it on in the second half of the season, but gave themselves too much to do. All three of their recruits – Devon Smith, Jake Stringer and Adam Saad – have been great additions and defender Aaron Francis is starting to fulfill his potential. The Power must find a way to fix their scoring woes without key forward Charlie Dixon if they’re a chance to keep their slim finals hopes alive.
