Show Preview

Collingwood awaits the winner of Port Adelaide and GWS as they lock horns at the Adelaide Oval in a semi final showdown. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:40pm (AEST).

The big selection news for the Power this weekend is the omission of ex-Giants forward Jeremy Finlayson, who will make way for the returning Charlie Dixon. Ken Hinkley has also elevated veteran Travis Boak into the starting 22 to bring some experience and leadership.

Port have had a great season and will be desperate to bounce back after a disappointing outing against the Lions in Brisbane. It is a big night for the Power’s back six after being dominated by the Lions.

Ollie Lord had a career night last weekend with four goals. The youngster will be looking to continue that form into tonight. Todd Marshall also uncharacteristically missed some simple set shots from close range.

The Giants will welcome back Stephen Coniglio this week after he was a late out for their elimination final against the Saints. Xavier O’Halloran will make way for the gun midfielder this evening.

GWS have been arguably the form team of the competition over the past three months, winning all but 2 of their last 14 games. This is a side with nothing to lose and nothing to prove. The fact that such an inexperienced side, under a new coach, is thriving under the new but old ‘Tsunami’ game style is something to behold.

It’s a big night for Sam Taylor on the defensive end and an even bigger night for Jesse Hogan on the offensive end. These two talls are the key to the Giants success in progressing to the Preliminary final against Collingwood next week.

I am tipping the Giants to get it done by less than 10 points. On their night, the Power can do anything; their young, dynamic midfield brigade are capable of breaking any team open very quickly.

However, the Giants have something about them, they thrive away from home and the Power faithful shouldn’t be able to tear them apart.
