Five talking points: Port Adelaide v Hawthorn
Coach Alastair Clarkson said the spread of goal-kickers in Lance Franklin's absence was a highlight.
"We've worked on that a fair bit and feel like we've got good potency that can be spread across a number of players that can go in that part of the ground," Clarkson said.
"Savage stepped up and kicked three and I think Smith kicked three so that's really pleasing. It's really important to have that spread and not rely on just one or two players."

Although suffering a second-consecutive loss, Power coach Ken Hinkley insisted his players had learnt a valuable lesson.
"Clearly everyone that watched the game would say we over-used the ball – that's the pressure that Hawthorn bring," Hinkley said.
"The two sides that I think have put us under that much pressure are Hawthorn and Geelong and they sit one, two on the ladder.
"We know we've got lots of work to do to handle the pressure that those top sides can put on you.
