Port Adelaide host an undefeated Geelong side on Sunday to wrap up Round 6 of the <a href="/sports/afl/afl-/afl-round-6">AFL</a>. For the second week in a row, Geelong feature in a top-of-the-table clash, this time sitting in top spot with five wins out of five.
Flying high after their Easter Monday triumph over Hawthorn, the Cats head into Sunday’s clash exuding confidence. Their performance against the Hawks was premiership-winning material and there was a big move on their price to take this year’s flag in the 2014 Premiership market. There are concerns surrounding Andrew Mackie’s fitness though. The star defender suffered hamstring doreness in round four and was subbed off at three-quarter time in the Hawks game. Mackie’s absence will be a big blow for the Cats and Jackson Thurlow will most likely have the task to fill his boots if he doesn’t make the trip to Adelaide.
Port Adelaide head into this clash off a win after grinding out an impressive 14-point win against West Coast. The Power face the undefeated Cats with a dreadful recent record between the clubs. The last time Port tasted victory over Geelong was back in round 21 of the 2007 season. Star trio Chad Wingard, Jay Schulz and Jackson Trengove have all been cleared of injury to play this weekend, while Angus Monfries is also a chance, having recovered quickly from a strained hamstring.
AFL fans are treated to another great long-weekend of footy, with Port hosting Geelong the pick of the bunch. It’s first versus second and there’s nothing to split the sides, but after their performance on Easter Monday against the competition favourites, it’s hard to go past the Cats at good odds.
