Footy Frontline Ep 17: Port Adelaide’s Crisis, Carlton’s Surge and Round 16 Insights

26 June, 2024

In this week’s episode of Footy Frontline, Nick D’urbano and Oliver Caffrey tackle the latest AFL news, analysis, and predictions.


Port Adelaide’s Crisis Port Adelaide suffered a devastating 79-point loss to Brisbane at home, marking their third consecutive defeat with an average losing margin of 46 points. The Power are now 8-6 and barely clinging to a top-eight spot. Coach Ken Hinkley faces mounting pressure, with fans voicing their dissatisfaction. Hinkley’s outlook has shifted from optimism to acknowledging the team’s struggles. With a tough schedule ahead, including matches against St Kilda, Western Bulldogs, Gold Coast, and Richmond, the Power’s season hangs in the balance.


Carlton’s Surge Carlton delivered a statement win against Geelong, solidifying their credentials as flag contenders. Led by an outstanding midfield and a powerful forward line, the Blues dominated the Cats. With key players set to return, Carlton is poised for a strong finish to the season. Playing only three top-eight teams in the run home, the Blues have a favourable path to secure a top-four spot.

  • Brisbane vs Melbourne: Look out for Eric Hipwood to score multiple goals.
