The most emotive Showdown ever. Port have found some form with good efforts against Sydney and Collingwood whilst the Crows battled hard against the Eagles. Sit back and enjoy the fierce spectacle.
The Crows have added Rory Atkins (debut) and Brodie Martin at the expense of Nathan Van Berlo and Cam Ellis-Yolmen. They are missing midfielders Brad Crouch, Rory Sloane, Matt Jaensch and Mitch Grigg from their best 22. Port are without Jaspar Pittard and Karl Amon from last week with Nate Krakouer and Aaron Young coming in. Alipate Carlile and Matt White are still out with injuries.

They are 6-2 (3-5 against the line) against bottom ten teams this season. Port is 12th on the table with six wins and eight losses.

Six of the last eight Showdown’s have totalled over 190-points. Port Adelaide has won 15 of their 21 games (14-8 against the line) at the Adelaide Oval. The Crows are 9-9 (9-9 against the line) at the Adelaide Oval. Chad Wingard has kicked the most goals for Port in their last five games.
The Wolf likes the way Port Adelaide are travelling at the moment following up a good effort against the Swans with a gritty win over Collingwood. The full-strength Port Adelaide midfield look to have an advantage over their Adelaide counterparts whilst Paddy Ryder and Justin Westhoff should be able to exploit their Hartigan and Lever match-ups. It will be up to Patrick Dangerfield, Eddie Betts and Taylor Walker to keep Adelaide in this one and they are big game players. Port Adelaide should get the job done but Adelaide will keep this one tight for most of the way.
