Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers Preview

Last week’s results have only added further spice to what was already an enticing matchup.

The Tigers will head to Adelaide as the firm underdogs on Friday night following an uncharacteristically flat performance last week at home to the Swans, while the bookies seem to think Port can bounce-back from a rough trip to Perth against West Coast.

Last year saw these two sides meet twice, once in the regular season and once in the finals.

Port marched to a comfortable 21-point win in Round 11 at home before the Tigers turned the tables in a thrilling Prelim Final to win by a goal.

As far as injuries go, the Tigers do head into this game a little battered and bruised.

Dion Prestia is set to miss upwards of a month after injuring his hamstring last week, while Kamdyn Macintosh and Nick Vlaustin will both be absent for a short period of time.

On the Port front, the Power return home relatively fresh outside of Tom Rockliff, who looks set to miss up to two weeks with a concussion.

Overall, this is easily the toughest game of the round to try and pick, but if there’s one team that has earned itself a mulligan, it’s the Tigers.

Richmond has made a bad habit of losing in Round 3 in each of the last three years, only to rebound the very next week with comprehensive victories.

There’s no way Damien Hardwick’s well-oiled machine will play lazy footy like it did last week, and it’s fair to say the loss to the Swans may have been the reality check the reigning premiers needed.

With a brilliant 4-1 record in their last five games on the back of a loss, the Tigers are well worth backing with some good insurance on offer.
