Round 12 kicks off at the Adelaide Oval on Friday night, with the Power looking to consolidate their spot in the top 8 against the second-placed Tigers. Port fans will be very disappointed with the 3 point loss to the Hawks in Launceston last round despite a flying start that saw them go into the first break leading by 24 points. They kicked just one goal across the second and third quarters in a effort that will leave Ken Hinkley and the Alberton faithful seething. Richmond, on the other hand, have lost just twice this season (to the ladder leaders and their 2017 Grand Final opponents) and are fresh off a 71-point thumping against the Bombers in the Dreamtime game at the ‘G. Can the Power rebound and prove they are legitimate Finals contenders or will it be business as usual for the Tigers?

Form

Port Adelaide (WLWWL) – What a rollercoaster year for Port fans. It’s not so much the differing output that worries, but the effort- it seems these boys just sometimes pick and choose when to go hard and it is usually when a high degree of emotion about a situation can be conjured up. Granted, Port’s leaders like Brad Ebert, Ollie Wines, Robbie Gray and Justin Westoff stood up when the game was on the line against the Hawks last round, but they shouldn’t have found themselves in the hole they did in the first place. There’s a whole lot of skilful players that are lucky to be getting a game at the moment based on their effort (or lack thereof).

Richmond (WWLWW) – The footy Richmond played on Saturday night in ‘Dreamtime at the ‘G’ can only be described as breathtaking. That isn’t just describing their attacking play either, the way they apply pressure and hunt the footy as a pack was just incredible to watch and the Bombers simply had no answers. Josh Caddy has been in rare form recently, booting 10 goals in his last 2 matches from the goal square- despite being just 185cm. The flame-haired forward/midfielder is also incredibly dangerous around the contest, and getting the ball inside 50- such is his versatility. The #7 pick from 2011 is absolutely FLYING.

Stats That Matter

What To Expect
The Wolf is excited for this Friday night match in Adelaide between two sides that are very easy on the eye with their electric game styles. This is the kind of game that Port really turns up for of late, and if you’re ever going to beat Richmond it’s going to be at home. The Tigers should be good enough to get the job done, but it would be no surprise to see a hyped-up Port Adelaide push them all the way.
