Port Adelaide Power vs Geelong Cats Preview

For the second year running, Geelong will travel to Adelaide to play the Power in week one of the finals.

The Cats are coming off a shock goal after the siren loss to Melbourne, after being 44-points up and kicking nine consecutive goals – ended up missing out on the minor premiership and a “home” (Well, neutral ground) final.

While Geelong are frequent flyers come the business end of the season, Saturday’s loss for the Cats should be the trigger point or panic stations for a team that’s gone all-in on winning a flag after so many missed attempts of recent.

It’s a case of choose your own adventure for Geelong, they’ve ended up with the hard road but they have shown this season they most certainly have the talent to grab a flag.

As does Port Adelaide, who have timed their run brilliantly into the finals and have ended up playing in front of a small but mostly vocal, loyal, and passionate home crowd and have won their past six games.

While they have built a reputation for not being able to beat sides in the top four, the Power can book themselves into a Preliminary Final by overcoming a Geelong side that’s looked hardly convincing in the past three weeks, losing two out of their past three – all at GMHBA Stadium and their most recent win over the Saints in Round 22 was hardly convincing.

Geelong did beat the Power by 21-points at Adelaide Oval when these two sides met back in June and if the Cats can get back into the form we saw in that match, they’ll be a chance but top teams don’t blow  44-point leads at home in top of the table clashes on the eve of the finals.

It’s fair to say, I’m off Geelong – at least in the first week of the finals.

Port have been the far better team heading into the business end of season, are playing at home and should beat the Cats in week 1 – just like they did last year.
