Power needs to switch on for Roos clash

IT is desperate times right now at Port Adelaide – the Power has lost three of its past four games leading into the clash against North Melbourne at Etihad Stadium tomorrow afternoon.

The Power is in ninth place and just one spot behind the Kangaroos – but three wins behind its North Melbourne opponent.

There are still seven rounds to go and the Power is still a mathematical chance of making the finals, but its winning streak must start now.

“It’s no good, ‘Oh look we get close, we get near it, we think we’re good enough’ – eventually you’ve just got to do it,” Power coach Ken Hinkley said.

“It’s on me, it’s on the whole squad that goes over there to play; we’re all in it together and we need to be able to stand up.”

The Kangaroos have three of their most experienced stars back for this game – Jarrad Waite (hip), Daniel Wells (calf) and Nick Dal Santo (virus).
