Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley said on Friday that Westhoff's form as a forward-ruckman hadn't been good enough but he may now be thrust into defence. 

The first-placed Power have won eight straight games against St Kilda but Brett Ratten's side broke its Adelaide Oval hoodoo on Monday night against the Crows.
