Game notes: The Magpies’ season is still alive – in that it’s still mathematically possible for them to make the finals – but it is expected to die a quick death against League leader Adelaide at the MCG on Sunday. After being two men down and coming from 24 points down in the last quarter against the Eagles to win by eight points, the Pies have won two in a row and require another five successive victories to press for September. They’ll need the Crows – who sit a game-and-a-half clear atop the AFL ladder – to be well below their best in the visitors’ third and final clash on the hallowed turf before the finals. Goalsneak Eddie Betts is sidelined for the first time as a Crow after having his appendix removed, but the Crows boast a massive arsenal and should have little trouble replacing the little champ.
Hutta’s Tip: Adelaide by 30 points
