TODAY’S LINE-UP from 6PM: Tony Shaw, Warren Tredrea, Leigh Matthews, Dwayne Russell, Bruce Eva, and Laurie Colliver.
Port Adelaide has powered away to a 57-point win.
Ollie Wines was outstanding again, racking up 35 touches in midfield and booting a goal.
Compounding the misery for the Bulldogs were hamstring injuries to Easton Wood and Jack Macrae.
Tony Shaw said the season is now over for the Dogs, who are three wins outside the eight.
The crowd is standing as one in the 13th minute in support of No.13, Todd Marshall.
He’s 19 and has lost both his parents in the last year.
Tredrea: “He’s the best young key forward talent Port’s had in some time.”#AFLPowerDogs

Simona Halep’s coach Darren Cahill spoke to 3AW during the half-time break.
Halep broke through for her first Grand Slam title at Roland Garros after three previous lost finals.
Cahill has also coached Lleyton Hewitt and Andre Agassi to Grand Slam titles.
He said he does give coaching advice from the crowd, even though it’s technically against the rules.
“It’s not allowed, but everyone does it,” he said.

LETHAL’S GREATEST SKIPPER
Port assistant Michael Voss spoke to 3AW before the game.
Voss was one of two captains to win a premiership under Leigh Matthews, the other being Tony Shaw.
So when all three were in the same conversation, the question had to be asked: who was greater?
And Leigh’s answer couldn’t have come quicker!
THE BEST OF THE BEST
The 350 club is about to get its 16th member when Shaun Burgoyne plays his 350th match on Saturday.
It prompted Leigh Mattews and Tony Shaw to name their best players from that elite group.
The Bulldogs are in all sorts at the moment.
The Dogs lie in 14th place, having not won since they beat the Lions on May 12.
The task tonight was one which too much even for the reigning premiers last week – the Power in Adelaide.
Can the Dogs spring an upset?
Or will Port power on and consolidate their spot in the eight?
