WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Saturday, April 7, 7.25PM AEST
St Kilda will be desperate to bounce back after a terrible loss to North Melbourne, when the Saints struggled to win contested football or hit targets by foot. Those two areas will be important against one of the best teams in the competition in Adelaide. The Crows typically have a very strong onball division with Rory Sloane and Matt Crouch leading the way, but Crouch won’t be available after suffering a left hamstring strain last week. They are also very slick with the football, so Alan Richardson’s side will need to bring the pressure game it can usually be relied upon to deliver. St Kilda’s midfielders, led by Jack Steven and Seb Ross, will need to be at their best, while young guns such as Jack Billings, Blake Acres and Jade Gresham need to show they can consistently contribute at a high level.
