AFL 2017 Round 16 - West Coast v Port Adelaide

BOTH the Power and the Magpies walked away with solid wins from the weekend, making any team changes a tough call for selectors.

The Power’s convincing 32-point victory over the Eagles showcased a solid team performance with Paddy Ryder and Charlie Dixon among the best in the west.

Karl Amon and Sam Powell-Pepper are the only names on the injury list with both set to be assessed this week.

Powell-Pepper is likely to retain his spot in the Power while Amon is tipped to make his return through the SANFL side if declared fit.

The Magpies were just as convincing in their 58-point hiding of the Crows at Alberton on Saturday afternoon.

Aaron Young ended the day with 33 disposals while Brett Eddy, Billy Frampton and Aidyn Johnson had three goals apiece.

With Paddy spinning football gold in the middle, it’s unlikely Billy Frampton will get the call up, despite his stellar efforts around the ground, but Aaron Young and Aidyn Johnson may be in with a chance if a spot opens up in the team.

Port Adelaide’s selection will take place at 5.50pm ACDT on Thursday 13 July.

North Melbourne

There could be a few ins for North Melbourne this weekend after falling just short of a win over the weekend.

Small defender Marley Williams could be making a return to the side after missing the past two matches with a back injury while Jarrad Waite and Mason Wood missed Round 16 with calf injuries.

All three players along with six others will undergo fitness tests before selection later in the week.

Port Adelaide plays North Melbourne at 1.40pm ACST on Saturday 15 July.
