Richmond will travel to Adelaide to take on Port Adelaide for the second time this season on Friday night. Across the past 10 years, the Tigers have beaten the Power seven times and all of these victories bar one have been in Adelaide. The previous meeting between these two clubs saw Richmond lose by 35 points, so the Tigers will be looking to atone for that result this time around.

Throughout the past 10 years, a host of Tigers have performed really well against the Power whether Richmond secured the victory or not. Below are some past and present Tigers that make up the top five best performers against Port Adelaide...

1. BACHAR HOULI: The currently injured defender has finished within the leading disposals against Port Adelaide in four matches in the past 10 years. His best game against the Power came in Round 6, 2016 – a 35 point loss at the MCG. He netted 34 disposals, seven marks and three tackles.
