The Port Adelaide Power welcome a rejuvenated GWS Giants team to the Adelaide Oval in a game where both sides will fancy their chances. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 4:40pm (AEST).

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.

Prediction
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.
