What it means for Richmond: The push for top four continues. Now just two players – Toby Nankervis and Alex Rance – away from full-strength, the Tigers are finding form at just the right time.

What it means for Port Adelaide: The frustrating Port Adelaide form line has continued, but all expectations will be off, taking on a side with momentum at its home ground. It's the perfect opportunity for the Power to strike a crucial blow.

The stat: Robbie Gray has starred for Port Adelaide over the years but struggles against Richmond. He averages 15.7 disposals when playing the Tigers, his lowest tally against any side. Gray does like to hit the scoreboard, kicking 21 goals in 13 matches.

The match-up: Trent Cotchin v Travis Boak

The two veterans are a chance to go head to head in the middle of the ground. Both are strong contested ball-winners who love to go hard at contests, setting up their teammates on the outside.

It's a big week for: Ken Hinkley

The Power have once again been the Jekyll and Hyde of the 2019 season, winning games they shouldn't and dropping games they should win. Last week's loss to Brisbane at home was demoralising, and Richmond looms as a tough opponent to bounce back against.

Big call: The Jack Riewoldt-Tom Lynch combination will click into gear, with the pair kicking seven goals between them.

Prediction: Tigers by 25 points
