WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Saturday, June 30, 4.05pm ACST
It’s desperate times for Adelaide as last year’s grand finalists aim to stay within touching distance of the top eight. The injury-depleted Crows have lost four on the trot to slip to 11th on the ladder with a 6-7 win-loss record. They’ve been busy during their bye week – cutting ties with mind training company Collective Mind and locking away gun forward Tom Lynch for the next three years. The third-placed Eagles (10-3) also have a point to prove after dropping their past two games. The twin-headed monster of Nic Naitanui and Scott Lycett should give the Eagles an advantage in the ruck, but it’s up to their midfield to capitalise. That’s no easy feat against a Crows’ side second in the League for contested possessions. The Eagles will also need to find a way past in-form Crows key defender Daniel Talia. Adelaide Oval holds no fear for the Eagles, but the Crows have too much to play for.
