The Tiges roll into the top four after a workman-like win over Port
The Tigers have entrenched themselves in the top eight and Power have finally showed some consistency, in losing.
Tom Lynch and Jack Riewoldt played just their fourth game together, but the towering duo were all class delivering a combined total of 6.5 for the Tigers.
Lynch spoke with 3AW Football after the win where he said “It’s awesome having Jack back and it’s amazing to play alongside him.”
Power struggled to match the consistency of the Tigers and by the second half their pressure had dropped.

From any injury crippled team in the early stages of the season, the Tigers are almost back to their full list bar Toby Nankervis and Alex Rance.
As the top the sides scramble to secure their spots in the top eight, every game at the pointy end counts.
Power have endured nine weeks of off and on performances, and whilst a September campaign may be out of reach, they could offer a crucial blow to the Tigers with a win.
Jack Riewoldt will play his second game back after a brilliant performance last week, Liam Baker and Jack Graham will also rejoin the side today.
