Australian Football League Live Port Adelaide Power vs Collingwood Magpies Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 21 Stream. Port Adelaide Power vs Collingwood Magpies match will be kickoff at Adelaide Oval, North Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, Friday 13 August 2017 online, 16:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Port Adelaide have won just three of their last six and while they remain fifth on the ladder with an 11-8 record, they are just a single win off 11th position. The Power were hammered in the Showdown last week and have been held to 65 points or fewer in their last three. The Power now rank fourth in scoring and third in defence.
Collingwood have found some form recently, not losing in any of their last four. They enter this off their biggest win of the year, a 54-point thrashing of North Melbourne. Collingwood have posted 100-plus in three of their last four. They are 12th on the ladder with an 8-10-1 record with the eighth ranked attack and 11th rated defence.
Port Adelaide head into Sunday’s clash with Collingwood with a point to prove following last week’s defeat to rivals Adelaide Crows.
The Power failed to fire in the Showdown as the Crows ran out 84-point winners and that loss could have serious consequences for the club’s top 8 ambitions.
It is now only three wins from the last six games and, although they sat fifth on the ladder heading into the round, the congested standings mean they are just one result from dropping out of the finals spots.
Will they recover from last week’s no-show – which was the biggest ever defeat in Showdown history, or will it prove a headache at the wrong point in the season?
Collingwood are unbeaten in the last four, a run which includes a draw with the Crows, and will have gained confidence from the comfortable victory over North Melbourne last week.
It has all been a little too late for the Magpies, however, but given their form they can take the fight to the Power, who have won the last three head to heads between the sides.
It is no surprise that Port Adelaide make changes. One is enforced with Jack Hombasch out with a hip injury, while Sam Pepper-Powell is rested. Aaron Young, Angus Monfries and Jackson Trengrove are dropped with Dan Houston, Dougal Howard, Chad Wingard, Jacke Neade and Brendon Ah Chee coming in.
Collingwood lose Brodie Grundy to suspension and Daniel Wells and Levi Greenwood to injury. Mason Cox, Callum Brown and James Aish are the replacements.
