Last time they met
Rd 7, 2018: Adelaide 19.11 (125) d Carlton 10.10 (70) at the Adelaide Oval
- Our first game against Carlton champion Bryce Gibbs.
- The Crows were just way too good for us, as they always are in Adelaide.
- Mitch McGovern kicked 5 goals.
- Paddy Dow kicked his first goal for his career.
What I'm excited about
- The final chance to watch our boys until 2019.
- This is the ultimate "all or nothing" proposition, and I'm sure the boys will be looking forward to getting one more opportunity to win a game.
- Simply another game closer to the magical 100 for a lot of our list.
- Patrick Cripps gets one more chance to poll 3 Brownlow votes.
- Harry and Charlie.
- Guys playing for their careers.
What I'm nervous about
- The Crows simply have a far superior list on paper, with bigger bodies and an explosive attacking style.
- Young Carlton bodies that are limping to the finish line.
- Caleb and Jacob have looked vulnerable at times this season when matched up against bigger bodied forwards.
- Eddie Betts at Etihad.
IN - Matt Shaw
OUT - Cameron Polson
I would like to see what Matt has to offer before the season ends - I don't think we've got enough of a sample size to understand if he is one to pursue with.
Polson's inability to win the ball for a midfielder is alarming. Unless he's played in the forward line as a pressure forward, he's a liability for us right now.
