The top of the ladder Power take on the high flying Tigers who looked to be back to their Grand Final form last week.

Port Adelaide have been super this season, with the only recent defeat coming against St Kilda who are the most improved side in the competition.

Richmond beat the Lions last week in what was a display of all class. Inaccurate kicking was a huge part of the loss, but Richmond took their opportunities and made them count.

Port Adelaide Form & Team News

Port Adelaide were too strong against the Dogs last week, beating them by just over two goals.

They looked slow and just an average side in the first half before they kicked into gear and took some strong contested grabs and kicked a few quick goals.

Although Charlie Dixon did not get a stack of footy, his influence on the game was huge, being a big strong presence down forward and a target along the wing to kick to.

Port Adelaide vs Richmond Match Up

The main match up is whoever will play on Charlie Dixon, maybe Ivan Soldo or Nick Vlastuin will be the likely man.

He is one of the hardest match ups in the competition because of his brut strength and competitiveness at the footy, so your average backman will be slaughtered by him.

Vlastuin has the footy smarts to go with him in the air but Soldo has the body as a ruckman and can bring the ball to ground.

If Charlie gets his tail up, that will get the whole team up and about.
