WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Thursday, July 12, 7.20pm ACST
If its finals dreams aren’t already gone, a loss to Geelong would all but certainly write off Adelaide’s season. The Crows (7-8) are two wins outside the top eight and also have to make up a massive percentage gap in the remaining seven games. The Crows will need to move the ball quickly, play on at every opportunity and take risks if they are to get back to the entertaining, high-scoring brand of football they displayed in the last quarter against West Coast in round 15. A win for the Cats (9-6) would consolidate their spot in the top eight, while staying within striking distance of the top four. Prime movers Joel Selwood and Mitch Duncan are in superb form, while the electric Tim Kelly is one of the finds of the season. And then there’s 2016 Brownlow Medallist Patrick Dangerfield, who always produces something special against his former club.
