THE TEAM NEWS

PORT ADELAIDE

  • Port Adelaide suffered their first loss of the season last week as they were defeated by Brisbane Lions but they still top the ladder heading into this clash with GWS Giants.
  • Power started poorly as they were blitzed by the Lions in the first half which saw them trail by 35 points at the break and they left themselves far too much to do as the managed just 48 points, their lowest total of the campaign so far.
  • On the back of that disappointing display, Power have opted to make two changes to their line-up with Riley Bonner and Tom Rockliff both dropped and that sees Cam Sutcliffe and Ryan Burton come back into the side.

GWS GIANTS

  • GWS Giants made it back-to-back wins in the AFL thanks to a second impressive performance in succession as they proved to be far too good for Hawthorn in what was a straightforward victory.
  • The Giants started well and backed it up with a strong final quarter too as they came out on top of those two quarters with a combined scoreline of 39-3 and those efforts proved to be the difference in the 83-49 win.
  • Despite the comfortable win, the Giants will make one unenforced change to their side this week with Tommy Sheridan omitted with Callan Ward returning at his expense.

THE PREDICTION

Port Adelaide suffered their first loss of the season last week and they will be keen to bounce back immediately but they face a tricky task against an improving GWS Giants. Power were second best against Brisbane Lions and with the Giants winning their last two, this looks like it will be difficult for them to respond. The Giants have performed well in their last two to earn eye-catching wins and while they should be able to win a third straight game, this one is likely to see at least 124 points.
