How to watch Port Adelaide Power vs Richmond Tigers AFL finals live and free
Port Adelaide can silence any remaining doubters and reach this year's AFL grand final if they can overcome Richmond. Here are your viewing options.
It's preliminary final weekend and first up a Port Adelaide side with its eyes firmly on the AFL summit takes on reigning champions Richmond. The Tigers are the team everyone still must find a way past if they are to ascend their well-earned throne.
The Power have set the pace virtually all season long, yet are still to convince some they can win it all. Only considered the third favourite for the flag at the time of writing, Port will surely erase all doubt if they can eliminate a Tigers side chasing a third title in four years.

Who will win Port Adelaide vs Richmond?
Port Adelaide will surely be relishing this opportunity to qualify for a grand final in front of some home fans in Adelaide. Among Port's 14 wins from its 17 games in the regular season was a 21-point victory over the Tigers back in round 11.
The Tigers meanwhile have an opportunity to add a little more lustre to their already outstanding era. Their battle-hardened squad knows what it takes to win at this time of the year, something the Power have yet to prove.
It is a foolhardy thing to write off Richmond at any time. But with the home ground advantage up their sleeve, we're leaning ever so slightly towards Port Adelaide reaching the decider, where either Brisbane or Geelong await.
