Ken Hinkley says Port Adelaide ‘looking forward’ to playing Bulldogs outdoors

Port Adelaide coach Ken Hinkley says the Power are looking forward to playing the Western Bulldogs ‘outdoors’ this weekend.

The Dogs, who have been dominant under the roof of Etihad Stadium over the past two seasons, take on the Power at Adelaide Oval.

Hinkley told 3AW he was keen to challenge the Dogs at home.

‘We get them over here at Adelaide Oval and we look forward to getting them outdoors and challenging them with a bit of wind and rain and everything else that goes on sometimes outdoors,’ he said on Sports Today.

Hinkley, meanwhile, refused to buy into provocative comments from David Koch about Essendon on Wednesday morning.

‘What’s he done?’ the Power coach said with a nervous laugh, unaware of the controversy.

The Power chairman said it ‘didn’t seem right’ the Bombers could land the first pick in the draft this year in the wake of the drug scandal.

‘I’ll just worry about what Port Adelaide is doing,’ Hinkley said with a laugh.
