Game notes: Port Adelaide will be heavily favoured to consolidate their spot in the top four against an out-of-sorts North Melbourne. The Power shed their ‘pretenders’ tag with a superb performance to defeat West Coast at Domain Stadium last Sunday. It was the type of resilient, gritty victory that successful finals campaigns can be built on. While the fourth-placed Power (9-6) are on an upward trajectory, the Kangaroos (17th; 4-11) are unfortunately going the other way. With five straight losses, the season can’t end quickly enough for Brad Scott’s side. The latest setback was a heart-breaking four-point defeat to Fremantle at Etihad Stadium, with ruckman Todd Goldstein missing a potential match-winning shot at goal late in the game. It’s been that sort of year for the Kangaroos. Nothing is guaranteed this season, but the Power should have too much firepower on their home deck.
Thommo’s Tip: Port by 50 points
