  • Adelaide are 11-0 against Gold Coast
  • Gold Coast always get blown out against Crows...until now

The Adelaide Crows host the Gold Coast Suns on Easter Sunday and the Round 5 match is crucial for the Crows who desperately need to win. 

Fox Footy will broadcast the match live from 4:30pm AEST with the first bounce at 4:10pm ACST (4:40pm AEST).

Match Preview


Adelaide currently sit 14th on the ladder with one win and three losses. They have lost their past two matches to Geelong by 24 points and North Melbourne by 12 points. 

The Gold Coast Suns have been a surprise so far in 2019 with three wins and one loss. They have won their last three matches, including a late-goal victory over Carlton in Round 4.

Alex Sexton has kicked 12 goals so far and will be a threat up forward once again for the Suns. Co-captain David Swallow has six to his name. Defender Jarrod Harbrow is always a vital cog in the Suns machine and he is the most efficient player at the club so far this season with an 85.7% disposal efficiency. 

Adelaide co-captain Rory Sloane will be looking to bounce back after having just 16 disposals against North Melbourne. Rory Laird and Matt Crouch led the way with 31 and 29 respectively. Sloane has 32 tackles for the Crows so far this season and his pressure will be on display against the Suns.  

Team News


Adelaide ruckman Sam Jacobs will again be absent. Chayce Jones suffered concussion against North Melbourne as he left the field in the first quarter. He will be assessed during the week. 

The Gold Coast Suns lost Will Powell to concussion after a devastating tackle from Will Setterfield; the incident saw Setterfield handed a two-match ban. Powell is unlikely to play.
