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.
