Port Adelaide vs Western Bulldogs Match Up


Port Adelaide's Charlie Dixon is the man the Dogs need to stop. Dixon is one of the league's top full forwards and Alex Keath is likely the man to oppose him.

Keath has been a shining light in an erratic year for the Dogs. There haven't been any forwards that have truly gotten on top of big Dog, but Dixon is a man with the size and strength to do so.

If Dixon can win this battle the Power will be hard to shut off.
