Port Adelaide has started 2014 in the same vein it finished last season, its opening two wins suggesting Ken Hinkley’s young team can build on its unlikely fifth-place finish in 2013.
North Melbourne, on the other hand, has started the season more slowly, its players taking time to adjust to a slightly tweaked game plan.
The teams’ past two clashes have been close, but you suspect the Roos will have to lift their game to beat a Port team that has won five of its past seven games in Melbourne, including three of its past four at Etihad Stadium.
1. The Kangaroos have dominated the Power in recent seasons, winning seven of their past 10 matches.
2. Port Adelaide is ranked fourth this season for centre clearances, averaging 15 a game, while North Melbourne is ranked 16th (9.5 a game).
3. The Kangaroos are second-last this season for inside-50s with just 42 a game, with the Power ranked 11th (49.5 a game).
4. Port has defeated North only once in six contests at Etihad Stadium, winning the 2005 elimination final by 87 points.
5. In the opening two rounds, the Power have finished games strongly, kicking seven goals in each of their final quarters.
6. Former North skipper Brent Harvey climbed from 10th to sixth in the Official AFL Player Ratings after his best-on-ground performance against the Western Bulldogs in round two. Port skipper Travis Boak is his team’s top-ranked player at No. 23.
