Australian Football League Live Port Adelaide Power vs Adelaide Crows Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Regular Seasons Week 08 AFL Stream. Port Adelaide Power vs Adelaide Crows match will be kickoff at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 12 May 2018 online, 16:40 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The AFL’s two Adelaide based sides, Port Adelaide and the Adelaide Crows, meet in another edition of the ‘Showdown’ when they square off at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday afternoon, May 12.
The Round 8 encounter gets underway at 5.10PM AEST and can be seen live on Fox Footy. Adelaide head in as favourites for the game.
Adelaide head into this as favourites, courtesy of their superior recent form that has seen them win their past three. The Crows come off a commanding 55 point win over Carlton and currently sit in 3rd position on the AFL ladder.
Their cross-town rivals, Port, have dropped three of their past four and are currently 11th. They come off a 42 point defeat at the hands of West Coast. However, they are only one win behind Adelaide over the course of the year and if they bring their best form they can challenge.
Ken Hinkley’s side will need to improve at winning the contested possessions and the clearances. They were smashed in this aspect of the game last weekend but have generally been good in these measures.
Travis Boak and Robbie Gray have been solid but the likes of Paddy Ryder and Charlie Dixon will need to lift. Ryder comes up against Adelaide’s Sam Jacobs in the ruck. The big sauce ranks 3rd in the competition for average hitouts this year.
An interesting aspect of this game will be how the Crows forwards perform. Mitch McGovern and Josh Jenkins combined for eight goals last weekend, but as a whole, the Adelaide forward line has been slightly down on output compared to last year.
