Port produced one of its best wins of the season in an 11-point upset victory against the Cats last time out, but the big question is, can they back it up this week as big favourites against the Dogs? The 7-6 Power have been up and down all season long, but now find themselves inside the top eight and with a tough run home, they will want to bank a win against the bottom four Dogs. A five point half-time lead wasn’t enough to see the wayward kicking Bullies home last round as they lost to the Pies by 9 points. An 8 goal to 5 second half did the damage, as they fell to 5-8.
The Dogs ruck woes won’t be eased any further this week, with youngster Tom English up against the experienced Scott Lycett. They rank 13th in the competition for clearance but are up against the clubhouse leaders in Port, who average 44 clearances per game this season.
Adelaide Oval has not been a happy hunting ground for the Bulldogs, who are just 1-5 at the venue. They are 13-16 against Port all time, but the home team has lost three of the past four home games. Port won last season’s only encounter by 38 points in Ballarat, with three of the Dogs’ loses in Adelaide against Port coming by 38 points or more. If they’re switched on, The Wolf can’t see why the Power won’t make easy work of the Dogs on Saturday night.
