THE TEAM NEWS

PORT ADELAIDE

  • Port Adelaide continued their superb start to the AFL season as they made it six wins from seven by overcoming Carlton last week and they continue to set the pace at the top of the ladder after that success.
  • The Power were pushed all the way by the Blues in a high-quality contest and they had to fight back from a seven-point deficit in the closing stages of the encounter which made it back-to-back wins for Port Adelaide.
  • There are three changes to last week’s line-up with Brad Ebert, Mitch Georgiades and Riley Bonner coming into the side at the expense of injured pair Ryan Burton and Steven Motlop while Justin Westhoff is omitted.

ST. KILDA

  • St. Kilda got back to winning ways as they finally ended their losing streak at Adelaide Oval by seeing off Adelaide Crows last week and they will hope that win is the catalyst for a more consistent run of form.
  • The Saints made a strong start to proceedings as they opened up a 20-point lead at the half and despite signs of the Crows producing a comeback, St. Kilda quickly extinguished any hopes of that as they extended their lead and came out 55-78 winners.
  • The Saints have made three changes to their side for this week’s game with Jack Lonie and Ryan Byrnes dropping out while Josh Battle is injured so Jack Sinclair, Nick Hind and Matthew Parker earn call-ups.

THE PREDICTION

Port Adelaide have started the season in brilliant fashion and they improved their record to 6-1 with their win last weekend. They had to dig deep to earn that win and showed great character to produce a late comeback. They will face a solid St. Kilda outfit that are 4-3 and on their day, they could really cause the Power some problems. However, their inconsistency could harm them and the home side should be able to win this one by at least 10 points.
