Where and when: Adelaide Oval, 7:50pm (AEDT)
Last time they met: R11, Port Adelaide 13.15 (93) d Richmond 11.6 (72)
Port Adelaide outlasted an undisciplined Richmond outfit despite dominating much of the afternoon. The Power’s double ruck act of Scott Lycett and Peter Ladhams received its biggest tick, while Travis Boak, Ollie Wines and Tom Rockliff won the midfield battle. However, the Tigers took in an under-strength line-up without Trent Cotchin, Shane Edwards, Dion Prestia and Bachar Houli.
Match Preview: It’s the new kids on the block up against a side playing its fourth straight preliminary final. Port Adelaide has lost just once on its home patch this year, and the Power will take confidence from their earlier win over Richmond and qualifying final effort against Geelong. However, Richmond has been here before and started to hit their straps in the semi-final triumph over St Kilda, with Tom Lynch back from injury and reigning best and fairest Dion Prestia peaking at the right time.
