Adelaide Crows vs West Coast Eagles Preview


The Crows kicked their lowest ever score against Essendon last week in a 63-point loss.

It was clear the Adelaide side missed Taylor Walker’s presence up forward, as they only finished with a mere two goals for the entire match. He has kicked 41 goals in 14 games this season.

The Crows will have to start the game on the front foot in an attempt to get the crowd right behind them, which has been a driving factor in their victories at Adelaide Oval this season. The Eagles seem to be playing with anger and frustration, so they will have to cope with that aggression in the midfield and not get carried away.

Meanwhile, the Eagles were on the receiving end of one of the upsets of the season against North Melbourne by 10 points.

West Coast has now lost three matches on the trot and their last four as favourites. They are favourites again on Sunday. They are also dominant in recent history against Adelaide, winning six of the last seven meetings.

Their poor form has now left them precariously just inside the eight on percentage. Scoring has been a particular concern, with only 17 goals coming from their previous three matches.

However, the Crows are struggling for tall defenders at the moment so you can expect Adam Simpson to isolate Josh Kennedy and Jack Darling to capitalise on the scoreboard.

Although the Eagles are in terrible form recently, I still believe they have the quality and the experience to turn this around, starting on Sunday.

Adelaide Crows vs West Coast Eagles Team News


The Crows will make at least one change with Tom Doedee on the receiving end of a bad collision last week. They will welcome back Taylor Walker and Tom Lynch from injury.

Brendon Ah Chee and Tom Barrass will miss with injury. Bailey Williams, Connor West, Harry Edwards, Mark Hutchings and Xavier O’Neill have been named in the extended squad.

*Teams are yet to be reduced to 22, four omissions still need to be made from the eight-man bench.

The two sides last met in Round 5 this season, which saw the Giants win by two points.
