After 6 long weeks in the Victorian Football League (VFL), Travis Cloke has been named in the senior squad to take on Port Adelaide at the MCG. With both teams desperately needing a win, you could imagine the game being a nail biter. Lets have a look at both scenarios.

Port Adelaide win:

With a Port Adelaide win, that puts their season back on track with being 6 Wins & 5 Loses. They would have all confidence back with key in's this week could see the Power pushing top 8. But, they have a tougher game against the Western Bulldogs at Adelaide Oval the week after but an easier game against the Dockers at Patterson's.

Port Adelaide lose:

If the Power lose, they could potentially see themselves being at 6 & 7 by their bye in round 14. Finals will still be gettable but much tougher games on the other side of the bye may see them finish around the 7-12 mark.

If Collingwood win:

If the Pies win, you can see them having good momentum going the next week against the Dee's at the G before the break which could see them being at 6 wins and 6 loses. Nathan Buckley has been so unlucky to be riddled with injury year after year. (Including himself last year). The Pies have Fremantle (MCG), Carlton (MCG), GWS (Spotless) & the Adelaide Crows at the Adelaide Oval after the bye which could really see them at 8 wins and 8 losses. This really is a must win game for the Pies.

If Collingwood Lose:

If the Pies lose, you could potentially see the end of Dane Swans career. The season could well and truly be over and you could see them being 4 wins & 7 loses and some angry heads around the Holden Centre. As said earlier, A must win game.

The game will be on Sunday 1:10pm AEST at the MCG. Match will be covered by Fox Footy, Foxtel Play (live) & tune into either SEN 1116, ABC or ABC Grandstand for the best coverage of the Pies V Power game.

Who do you think will come out on top?
