What a clash this promises to be. The Crows’ 5-0 win/loss record is the best start in club history, while the Tigers will be searching for their first 6-0 start since 1995. The Crows easily disposed of Gold Coast by 67 points at Metricon Stadium last Saturday, despite losing All-Australian defender Daniel Talia in the opening minutes of the game with a hamstring injury. The Crows have the most potent attack in the competition featuring Eddie Betts, skipper Taylor Walker and Tom Lynch, while gun midfielder Rory Sloane continues to show why he will be a Brownlow Medal contender this year. Led wonderfully by six-goal hero Jack Riewoldt, the Tigers staged an epic comeback to defeat Melbourne by 13 points on Monday night. The Tigers have surprised everyone with their magnificent start to the season, but this will be their biggest test so far.
MOTTSY’S TIP: Adelaide by 40 points
