The Power haven’t lost to the Gold Coast since their very first match against each other in 2011 and that trend will hold firm, despite the Coast’s unbeatable record at home this season. 

This match is not one that the Suns can afford to lose but they felt the pressure last week in their loss to North Melbourne and they will crumble again this week. 

Port had their best first half of the season against the Western Bulldogs last week and if they come out firing on target as they did against the Dogs, the Sun may just begin to set on the Gold Coast’s chances to play finals footy this season. 

  • Port have beaten the Gold Coast in 14 consecutive matches. 
  • Port has won 3 of their past 4 away matches.
  • Port have kicked more than 80 points in 4 of their past 5 games against the Gold Coast
  • Port average 81.7 points per game as the away team. 

Head to Head 


Port have not lost to the Gold Coast since the Suns inaugural season back in 2011, with the Power currently on a 14 game win streak against Damien Hardwick’s men.

The Suns blundered a chance to be in the top-eight with a loss to last-placed North Melbourne last week, going down 87-83 with an away win this season still eluding them.

Those types of performance have the Gold Coast been known for and are one of the main reasons while they have failed to feature in the finals since their inception into the league, with every 4 points vital, and just that very loss may be the difference of September footy this season or not. 

The Suns choked under the pressure with a 38% accuracy in the final term, kicking 3.5 when the game was on the line, compared to 9.6 in the opening three terms.

Port finally hit the target and wow, didn't it make a difference in the first half of their matchup with the Western Bulldogs, blowing their opponents off the park by kicking 10.5 at the main break. The Power went back to their crooked ways in the second half kicking 5.7 but the damage was already done and they walked away 102-54 victors.

Port has all the pieces to be up there as a serious contender…. When they are kicking straight and that was shown last week. They were better in the contested possessions, won the stoppages, moved the ball well uncostedley and in the first half were efficient inside 50 and were up by 44 points after two quarters.

Simple really, kick majors and win games so the hard work through the middle 

Port Adelaide Team News


Esava Ratugolea and Ryan Burton will be up for selection this week, recovering from a foot and hamstring injury.

Charlie Dixon has been added while Mitch Georgiades will miss the match due to suspension.
