Port Adelaide have had the superior season so far and sit with a win-loss record of 3-2. The two losses have come against the leading premiership fancies, the Adelaide Crows and GWS.
Brisbane are 1-4. They won a thriller against the Suns in Round 1 but have since lost their past four. Chris Fagan’s side played some exciting football last weekend and at one stage led the Bulldogs by 38 points. But they were blown away late in the game and eventually went down by 32.
If they bring their A-game they can push the Power but inconsistency has been an issue and they have struggled to string together four quarters in any of their games this season.
Tom Rockliff, Dayne Beams and Dayne Zorko loom as key players for the Lions and that trio will find plenty of the ball for the home side, but issues are evident at either end of the ground, particularly in the back half.
Despite a focus from Fagan to tighten up defensively, the Lions are still conceding well in excess of 100 points per game. Port have shown plenty of attacking prowess this season and can expose them in this area.
Look for Charlie Dixon to provide a focal point, while the classy Robbie Gray and Chad Wingard will be dangerous. Gray has been on fire so far this year, booting 14 goals as a crumbing forward and sits in seventh position on the league goal-kicking table.
A Port win will see them advance to a 4-2 win-loss record, further enhancing their aspirations of playing finals for the first time since 2014.
The road trip shouldn’t hold too many concerns for Port fans as the Lions have been well beaten at the venue by Essendon and Richmond in their two appearances at the GABBA to date in 2017.
