Top of the ladder Port Adelaide take on the the in-form Richmond Tigers in the game of AFL Round 11 at Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

Power have been super this season, with the only recent defeat coming against St Kilda who are one of the most improved sides in the competition.

Richmond beat the Lions last week in what was a display of all class. They looked to be back to their Grand Final form in midweek. Inaccurate Brisbane kicking was a huge part of the loss, but the Tigers took their opportunities and made them count.

Port Adelaide Form


Port Adelaide were too strong against the Western Bulldogs, beating them by just over two goals.

They looked slow and just an average side in the first half before they kicked into gear and took some strong contested grabs and kicked a few quick goals.

Although Charlie Dixon did not get a stack of footy, his influence on the game was huge, being a big strong presence down forward and a target along the wing to kick to.

Richmond Form


Richmond are the team in form, and without a full strength side to choose from too. There could be more to come in the latter part of the season and finals.

They showed the Lions who was king last week, albeit with some awful Brisbane kicking aiding their cause. Richmond made the most of their opportunities and were back to their best in front of goal.

Port Adelaide vs Richmond Tigers Match Up

The main match up is whoever will play on Charlie Dixon. That job could go to Ivan Soldo or Nick Vlastuin, most likely the latter.

Dixon is one of the hardest match ups in the competition because of his brut strength and competitiveness at the footy, so your average backman will be slaughtered by him.

Vlastuin has the footy smarts to go with him in the air but Soldo has the body as a ruckman and can bring the ball to ground.
