Geelong Cats vs Port Adelaide Power Preview
The implications of Friday’s showdown cannot be overstated as Geelong and Port square off in a potential Grand Final preview.
The Cats are on the short backup after pounding St Kilda by 59-points on Monday night, while the Power are well-rested after winning one of the games of the season against Richmond last Saturday.
Geelong were an absolute treat to watch on Monday as they controlled the tempo of the game and made full use of their inside 50 entries against the Saints.
Port Adelaide does pose a real challenge for the Cats, though.
The Power have allowed the second-fewest inside 50s this year as well as the fewest goals to opponents.
Also working in Port’s favour here is an outstanding track record at Metricon.
The Power have won each of their four games at Metricon this season, while the Cats are yet to play on the Gold Coast.
With Geelong on short rest, Port look a great bet to cover.
