Game Chat – Melbourne vs Adelaide

Written by Father Dougal on July 15 2017

Venue: TIO Stadium, Saturday, July 16, 7.10pm ACST

Last Time They Met: R8, 2017, Melbourne 17.5 (107) d Adelaide 9.12 (66) at Adelaide Oval
R15, 2016, Adelaide 18.12 (120) d Melbourne 15.8 (98) at the MCG
R3, 2015, Adelaide 12.8 (80) d Melbourne 7.13 (55) at Adelaide Oval
R7, 2014, Melbourne 11.4 (70) d Adelaide 9.13 (67) at Adelaide Oval
R22, 2013, Adelaide 18.12 (120) d Melbourne 7.10 (52) at AAMI Stadium

 

Game notes: Melbourne had its best win of the season when it defeated Adelaide by 41 points at Adelaide Oval in round eight. It was made to be an even more impressive victory given that Jesse Hogan and Max Gawn were missing from the side. Hogan and Gawn may be back for Saturday night’s match in Darwin, but the Demons will again be without co-skippers Nathan Jones and Jack Viney. Replacing the output of those two leaders remains a major challenge for the Demons despite falling in for a win over Carlton by eight points last weekend. The Crows were ruthless in their 59-point thumping of the Western Bulldogs last Friday night, with forwards Taylor Walker and Josh Jenkins combining for seven goals. It’s the first-placed Crows pitted against the fifth-placed Demons in what will be Adelaide’s first ever premiership match in the Top End.

Father Dougal’s Tip: Crows by 24

  1. I thought it would be clever to get in J Selwood and Gawn for Cripps and Ainsworth.

    Reckon I would have been better just trading Cripps for Mitchell and keeping Ainsworth’s score 🙁

    At least I would have saved a trade!

  2. Sloane has to go on the never again list … didn’t learn from last year and got sucked in with his good start … my worst trade all year I think… can’t play with a tag … and now knocked out again … *sigh*

  3. Sloane off with concussion on 46 points. He wanted to play on and wasn’t listening to anyone, wresting the med staff. Tex was the only one he listened to.
    Hoe he is alright. Also hoping that Adelaide keep winning well while he gets tagged and opposition coaches realise that just stopping Sloane allows the crouch brothers off the leash.
    Otherwise I’ll have to look at trading him along with my other underperforming premo’s.
    Pendles, Fyfe, etc etc etc etcetera.

  5. It’s not his fault but how can hibberd be the top scorer at 3/4 time , no tackles , 1 clearance , plenty of possessions though, I guess ?
