Game notes: This looks like an easy assignment for the Power as they put the finishing touches on their finals preparations. Last weekend’s gritty 17-point victory over the reigning premiers ensured the Power return to the finals for the first time since 2014. If they get an all-important double chance or host an elimination final remains to be seen. For the Power to finish fourth, they need to take care of business, hope St Kilda upsets Richmond and for Sydney not to get a massive percentage boost against Carlton. The Suns were competitive against Essendon last weekend before succumbing to their seventh straight loss. The biggest challenge for interim coach Dean Solomon is getting his players up for a game with nothing to play for, apart from denting the Power’s ladder position. The possibility of a top-four finish should inspire the Power.
