    It was a poor day at the office this time last weekend for Port Adelaide. Fremantle at home are a different proposition, but it’s a game Ken Hinkley would have been more than confident about walking away with four points from.

    There is just such an unpredictable nature to the Power, and it’s leaving more questions than answers about them.

    They are in a superb position to finish within the top four but, with the competition being so even, last week was not a game they would have liked dropping.

    What didn’t help was losing Robbie Gray and Paddy Ryder throughout the match, but I don’t think Hinkley will be looking for excuses.

    In terms of players that did stand out in the loss, Chad Wingard looked threatening as usual with two majors and 24 disposals.

    Ollie Wines was superb reeling in 30 disposals but, apart from the two mentioned, there was very little support.

    In team news for the Power, Paddy Ryder (injured) and Riley Bonner (omitted) come out of the side. Jasper Pittard and Jarrod Lienert are their replacements.

    As for GWS, last week was huge. The win against Richmond put them back within the top eight for a while and, with some players returning from injury, they may be hitting form at the right time.

    If the Giants were to get a spot in the top eight, they are a side many would like to avoid. They have been hampered with injuries this season and it has no doubt impacted their form but, with certain individuals returning, they are starting to look a threat.

    Everyone played their role last week against the Tigers, but there were a few that stood out. Zac Langdon was clinical kicking three goals straight.

    Josh Kelly reeled in 20 touches and two goals. Tim Taranto had a similar day out, kicking two majors and notching 23 disposals.

    In team news this week for the Giants, Ryan Griffen comes out of the side due to injury. Brett Deledio is his replacement.

    This is a tough game to predict due to Port Adelaide’s unpredictable nature and GWS’ change in form, but I’m leaning towards the Power purely due to the home ground advantage.

      I used to give Port grief for being soft and lacking in effort but actually it’s the opposite. They’re just not a skilful team. That was a huge effort to make a game of that when they were so inferior and if they had the talent to back up all that effort when they had 100 chances to get within a kick they amazingly could have won that.

        8 mainly soft free kicks to Port to nil from late in the 3rd quarter till 6 mins from the end. Free kick against Shaw in the behind post was a howler. I have seen stitch ups in RL to make the finish interesting and good for Tv but this rates with them. The AFL should look into this

      Full Time
      The Greater Western Sydney Giants have earned themselves a vital away win in Adelaide, their second for the year, to jump back inside the top 8 with a 11.14.80 to 8.10.58 win over an overpowered Port Adelaide Power.

      Both teams were fighting for crucial ladder positions, but it turned out that the Giants’ top 8 carrot was more enticing than the Power’s top 4 aspirations.

      The match was won in the first quarter, when the Giants kicked 4 goals to 1, and with the Power chasing the game, the Giant’s just couldn’t be caught.

      for the Power, Charlie Dixon had a commanding day out with crucial goals at crucial times, but he was a lone wolf in a star-studded wolf pack, as Robbie Gray was kept relatively quiet, while Chad Wingard, Ollie Wines, and Brad Ebert had their moments, just not consistently enough to make a real impact.

      For the Giants, their key men stood up when it matter, in particular Toby Greene firing up front.

      The Giants have a spring in their step, with bigger battles to come. As for the Power, they have a hard run home, and in a competition where the difference between a top 4 spot and missing finals is marginal, the Power now will run a fixture tightrope to feature prominently in September.

      A great contest in Adelaide, won by the Giants.

      This will be an important win for them, and a devastating loss for Port, especially given the Swans’ slip up this round.

      4th Q
      24‘ – That hurts.

      Power with all the hard work, they get into scoring position, bu the snap is weak, and kicked straight at the Giants defender int he goal square.
