This weekend, the Giants will face the Power in Adelaide and receive a significant advantage. Star midfielder Stephen Coniglio, who could not play in the team’s impressive victory against the Saints last week due to an injury, is expected to be back in action. His return will considerably boost the Giants, notching up their chances of success against the Power.
Here are our predictions:
GWS Giant’s Tom Green to get 30+ disposals @46/100 (1.46)
Tom Green has averaged more than 35 disposals following his return from an injury sustained in Round 21. The forward looks sharp and impressive. He would be aiming to cause problems for the opponents.
Port Adelaide -4.5 handicap win @8/11 (1.73)
Upon winning by an average of 35 points between both sides in their last four games, Port Adelaide can conveniently go on to win this handsomely by 4.5 handicap.
Port Adelaide Power vs GSW Giants preview
Port Adelaide experienced a tough defeat in the Qualifying Final against the Brisbane Lions, losing 38 points at the GABBA. However, they now face a confident GWS team following their 24-point victory over St Kilda in the Elimination Final.
The Power have a few injury concerns, as Dylan Williams and Trent McKenzie sustained injuries during the match against the Lions. Nevertheless, the positive news for Port Adelaide is that they have the advantage of hosting the upcoming game. These two teams last met at the Adelaide Oval in Round 22, resulting in an impressive 51-point win for Port Adelaide. This sets the stage for an intriguing matchup, as Port Adelaide aims to bounce back from their previous defeat and use their home-ground advantage to secure a victory against a confident GWS team.
On the flip side, GWS will have a different approach as they seek to exploit their running and carrying abilities to dismantle the opposing team’s defence, just as they did against St Kilda in the early stages of the finals. Tom Green has consistently shown his ability to gather possessions throughout the season, while Josh Kelly and Lachie Whitfield are also expected to have significant involvement in the game.
