Game notes: What a massive game to kick off round 18 – a top of the table clash and a possible Grand Final preview. Adelaide Oval will be packed to capacity to see if the Crows can snap a five-game losing streak to the Cats. After looking vulnerable midway through the season, the Crows have won four of their past five games to recapture their sparkling form from earlier in the year. The Crows were ultra-impressive in disposing of fellow top-eight side Melbourne in Darwin last weekend, even after losing stars Rory Sloane (concussion) and Jake Lever (hamstring) late in the game. The Cats are also flying, winning six of their past eight including last weekend’s three-point thriller over Hawthorn, with Brownlow Medallist Patrick Dangerfield booting five goals on one leg. Strap yourself in, this is going to be a beauty.
Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 15 points.
