Australian Football League Live Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers Live Stream Free, AFL 2017 Seasons Week 15. Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers match will be kickoff at Adelaide Oval, North Adelaide, South Australia, Australia, Saturday 01 July 2017 online, 19:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Port Adelaide are fourth on the ladder with an 8-5 record. They have won back-to-back games against Brisbane and Collingwood – the first time they have put together consecutive wins since Round 6. They have not won three straight in 2017. The Power have the top defence in the AFL while they rate second defensively.
Richmond also have an 8-5 record and sit sixth on the ladder. Their success has very much been built on their defence, which rates second, but their ability to score has certainly not matched Port’s, ranking 12th. The Tigers have won three of their last four including a 26-point win over rivals Carlton last round.
The two sides are among a group of four teams that have a win-loss record of 6-7, currently sitting two games out of the top eight.
Port Adelaide come off the bye last weekend and have had a couple of weeks off to think about their ordinary effort against Fremantle prior to the break, when they went down by 17 points to the lowly Dockers.
Richmond come off a 42 point win against the Brisbane Lions and have won five of their past six games. The Tigers have been well served by Dustin Martin in recent times, while Brett Deledio and Shane Edwards have also been prominent in recent wins.
The Tigers have improved their ball use in the last month or so and rank 6th in the competition for efficiency, compared to the Port, who are 16th.
However, Damien Hardwick’s men will need to make sure they apply enough pressure on Port’s playmakers. Richmond is ranked last in the competition for total tackles and if they allow their opposition too much freedom, the home side can be dangerous.
Robbie Gray and Hamish Hartlett are among a number of players that can do some damage for the boys from Alberton Oval. The two midfielders delivered a sub-par game in the loss to the Dockers and will be keen to fire up this weekend.
