How to watch Port Adelaide Power vs St Kilda Saints AFL live and match preview
Can St Kilda keep touch with the top 8 or will Port Adelaide cement a top 4 spot this Anzac Day?
You'd have a better chance picking the weather than the form of St Kilda. Their inconsistency means they could be competitive or lose by 40. Meanwhile Port Adelaide look every bit a flag favourite.
You can't help but feel a St Kilda loss against Port Adelaide will mean they're constantly chasing to make the finals all year rather than holding off the opposition. Ex-Port Adelaide big man Paddy Ryder has been a huge loss for the Saints.
When is Port Adelaide Power vs St Kilda?
The opening bounce will be at 6:10pm local time (6:40pm AEST) on Sunday 25 April at Adelaide Oval.

Port Adelaide vs St Kilda match preview
Going into round 6, the Saints had the second-worst percentage (71.4%) in the AFL behind only North Melbourne (45.4%), yet they were only 4 points outside the top 8. Their 86-point thrashing at the hands of premiers Richmond last week was embarrassing. Add that to a 75-point hiding to the Bombers and the Saints have conceded 161 points in their past 2 defeats. It's hard to believe they upset the Eagles in between those thumpings.
The Power (4-1) are travelling nicely and playing to expectations. They posted a commanding win on the road against Carlton last weekend. If they can take care of the Saints they face a challenging three weeks when they play the Lions, Crows in the showdown and then the high-flying Western Bulldogs.
It has become clear that St Kilda are battling without big men Ryder and Rowan Marshall. Thankfully ruckman Marshall (foot) and midfielder Zak Jones (hamstring) will come into the side after recovering from injuries.
The form of Power defender Aliir Aliir has been a big talking point this week. Aliir leads the Power for intercepts and intercept marks (alongside Tom Clurey). Last week he racked up 17 disposals, 6 marks and 10 intercepts in the 28-point win over Carlton. How the Swans must be wishing they had kept the 26-year-old.
The Saints have a much longer break between games but we're still expecting the Power to surge at home. Port Adelaide have won four of their past five matches against the Saints. Power by 24 points.
