Port Adelaide Form 

Port Adelaide are coming off a disappointing 49-point loss against the Brisbane Lions. 

It was the first time this season that the Power did not kick more than 10 goals this season as they finished with five goals and 14 behinds.

It was an disappointing result to an otherwise solid start for season 2021 with the Power sitting third on the ladder, two games away from front runners Melbourne Demons.

The Power have made themselves known for being a side that likes to control the pace. They demonstrate this with their marking, as they are in the top five for every statistic in that area.
