How to watch Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers AFL live and free
Ladder leaders Port Adelaide meet in-form Richmond in a heavyweight AFL clash. This is how you can watch.
As the crazy 2020 AFL season starts to take shape, this match looms as a true blockbuster and a gauge of how the race for the flag is developing. Port Adelaide have impressed all with their season to date, pacing the competition with an 8-2 win-loss record.
The Tigers, winners of two of the past three AFL premierships, have made a customary slow start to the campaign. But with wins in five of their past six games, including strong victories over Brisbane and the Western Bulldogs, they are starting to show ominous form.
When is Port Adelaide vs Richmond?
This match will commence at 4:35pm AEST on Saturday 8 August. It is the opening of a very unusual round 11 draw, which runs from Saturday through Wednesday this week.

Who will win Port Adelaide vs Richmond?
Port Adelaide really have been the standout team of the opening 10 rounds of the season. Regardless of where they have been based during the pandemic, they have handled it with aplomb. Considered only the fourth favourite for the flag, a little strangely, they will surely vault up that list if they take the Tigers' scalp.
Yet they will have their hands full with the reigning premiers. Richmond appear to be flexing their muscle at the right time of the year. After Port, the Tigers face Gold Coast and Essendon and could continue their steady climb up the ladder. Currently fourth, we're leaning slightly towards the Tigers maintaining their recent ascent.
