Geelong Cats and Port Adelaide go head to head in AFL Round 12 at Metricon Stadium on Friday night. Power are the deserved favourites in this match, but could the third-placed Cats take down the ladder leaders?

Both teams come into the game off big wins, with Geelong making St Kilda look like pretenders and Port Adelaide bringing down the flying colours of Richmond.

Geelong Cats Form


The Cats are a team that look polished and ready to take on the finals series after bringing down St Kilda by 10 goals last week in what was a display of men vs boys.

Geelong were defeated by another form team in West Coast in Perth in the previous game. Yet they fought hard to only be beaten in the last 10 minutes of the game.

How much of a toll will all this match play and travelling have taken on the Cats players as they come up against the top of the table team in Port Adelaide?

Port Adelaide Form


Port Adelaide are looking to send another huge message to the competition this week after such a strong performance against Richmond last week.

They have had a longer break than Geelong and will be looking to take advantage of that with another quick start, which set them up for victory last week.

If they can re-produce the same effort from the win over the Tigers, there are very few teams left in the competition that will be able to take it up to these boys.

Taylor has been around for years and has played on some of the best forwards we have seen in the modern era.
