Match Preview


Port Adelaide leapt into the top-four of the ladder after a memorable 32-point win over the West Coast Eagles at Domain Stadium. The win jumped the Power into fourth spot.

After the scores were locked at 10.8 (68) a piece at three quarter time, the Power stormed home 8.4 to 3.2 in the final quarter to defeat the Eagles. Led by star ruckman Paddy Ryder and spearhead Charlie Dixon's five goals, the Power stamped themselves as genuine contenders in this wide-open 2017 premiership race. 

Fremantle held on for a heart-stopping four-point win over North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium in frantic scenes. In the dying seconds Todd Goldstein, looked set to steal the win for North when he received a free kick 25m from goal after being held in a ruck contest. 

Freo dodged a bullet when the Roos ruckman pulled his set shot to the right and hung on for a 86-82 win that broke a five-game losing streak with the defeat leaving North stuck in 17th spot on the ladder.

Team News


Port Adelaide make one change with Logan Austin replacing Jack Hombasch. Defender Matthew Broadbent will be have to wait another week before a possible return from an ankle injury. 

Cameron Zurhaar comes into the North Melbourne side for his debut with Trent Dumont left out of the Roos side in the only change from last weekend.

Stats


History points towards a Kangaroos' victory. They have won 21 of the 31 games they have played against the Power. It's been closer since 2011, with the Kangaroos winning four games to three.

This is the first Adelaide Oval clash between the sides. North Melbourne hasn’t enjoyed playing at the venue so far though having lost all four games against the Crows, with two by more than 60 points.

Tips and Predictions


History favours North, but that might only prevent it from being a blowout.
