    Saturday’s early game takes us to Adelaide, when the high-flying Port Adelaide Power host the Brisbane Lions at Adelaide Oval. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 1:45pm AEST.

    It’s fair to say Port Adelaide’s start to the season has been a great one. They demolished Fremantle in their first game, and then travelled to Sydney to hold off the Swans in a fantastic victory last weekend.

    Brisbane, however, are winless. The Queenslanders were plucky against the Saints, but disappointing – if a little teasing – against Melbourne last weekend.

    A trip to Adelaide isn’t the easiest endeavour, and it’s going to be a tough assignment for Chris Fagan’s men – especially given the city has been, well, tough for the Lions in recent times.

    The Power are in good shape around the ground, with Ollie Wines, Sam Powell-Pepper and Charlie Dixon noticeable last week.

    Their midfield will be tough for the Lions to match, while their offense is also handy – a good test for the Lions’ defence, which has fallen victim to Port’s offensive power in their past few match-ups.

    The Power, not surprisingly, have made no changes to last week’s side. Brisbane have made a sole change, with Mitch Robinson returning from suspension and Dan McStay omitted. It’s their captain, Dayne Beams’, 150th game.

    Prediction
    The Lions – all things going well – should be a tougher opponent than they have been their last few outings at Adelaide Oval, but I am afraid this result is a bit of a foregone conclusion. Port will comfortably win this, probably by about 40 points.

    Port Adelaide by 40 points

      Not really happy with the performance, but really happy with the way we ground out the win. The Port of the last few years would have found a way to lose that game.

        Against the supposed wooden spooner? Nah ,don’t think so
        Either Brisbane are a lot better than they’re being given credit for ,or Port are significantly poorer than their loveys would have it.Somewhere in between.

          Yes Rotcod. Port have had some shocking losses over the past few years. No premiership contender is going to play fantastic football for 22 rounds, the key is winning ugly when you have to. That’s what Port did.

      Oh. Damn, that was close.

      Port’s won by 5 points, and I think my heart just broke for the Brisbane Lions.

      What a brilliant game.

        Fantastic game by the Lions – that type of performance should win us some games this year – shame it wasn’t this one 🙁

        Again, well done Lions!!

        That’s a disappointment for the Lions. They’re going in the right direction though.

        Great game of footy, such a disappointing result with the way we played.

        Really hope we can do Beamesy justice next week with an even bigger effort

        Should port be worried that they didn’t goal in that last quarter?
