Adelaide Crows vs Gold Coast Suns Preview


Despite having 33 scoring shots, Adelaide failed to defeat the Swans at the SCG.

The Crows were made to rue their missed chances in their 33-point defeat in a high scoring affair against Sydney. The midfield has been a particular highlight this season, averaging 38.5 clearances from their first two matches.

Adelaide has dominated the Suns in the past, with their only defeat coming in the unpredictable season that was 2020.

Meanwhile, the Suns grabbed their first win of the season with a 59-point triumph over the Kangaroos.

Gold Coast cruised through their round 2 clash, with their victory propelling them to sixth on the ladder.

A particular highlight to their game was their defensive structure. Stuart Dew’s side only conceded 39 points from 52 inside 50’s, keeping the lacklustre Kangaroos to an efficiency of 26.9%.

An intriguing battle awaits with the Gold Coast defence and experienced Adelaide forward Taylor Walker, who has kicked 11 goals to start the season.

Young star Noah Anderson was one of the best for the Suns, racking up a career-high 35 disposals and seven clearances.

This has the makings to be one of the games of the round, and I believe the home ground advantage will be pivotal in the result.

Crows vs Suns Team News


The Crows may make a couple of changes following their loss to the Swans with Jake Kelly one of the obvious inclusions.

Jarrod Harbrow looks like a likely inclusion to the line-up with Connor Budarick and Sam Day suffering knee injuries.

The two sides last met in Round 3 last season which saw the Suns win by 53 points.
