Game notes: Adelaide is the form team of the competition and comes to Metricon Stadium to play a Gold Coast outfit missing co-captain Steven May through injury. The Crows have beaten Greater Western Sydney, Hawthorn, Port Adelaide and most recently Essendon in a scintillating first month, led by red-hot small forward Eddie Betts, skipper Taylor Walker and relentless midfielder Rory Sloane. The Suns have found form in the past fortnight with strong wins over the Hawks and Carlton, although the loss of May to a hamstring problem will upset their defensive balance. Tom Lynch kicked seven goals against the Blues and looms as a pivotal figure, along with former skipper Gary Ablett, who has strung together two superb weeks after early-season criticism. The Suns should mount a spirited defence on their home turf, but it’s hard to see the Crows being upset in their current form.
Thommo’s Tip: Adelaide by 45 points.
