Where and when: Adelaide Oval, Saturday 5th June at 4:35pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R11 2020: Collingwood 10.2 (62) def Adelaide 5.8 (38) at Adelaide Oval
Recent record: Collingwood 4 – Adelaide 1
Match Preview: With neither team looking likely to play finals, this match holds little interest for the non-Supercoachers out there, despite both teams showing good signs in recent weeks. The Pies arguably should have beaten Port two weeks ago and then they challenged Geelong late last week while who can forget Adelaide defeating Melbourne two weeks ago (yes, I know it was deliberate Dees’ fans)?
Over the last few seasons, the Pies have enjoyed a trip to Adelaide and have enjoyed decent success there. However, this Collingwood side is not of the standard we have seen in recent times. For a start, Grundy is missing his first game since 2017 and the deficiencies don’t end there. It is hard to see their recent form continuing for a sustained period and they seemed destined to spend 2021 dwelling in the cellar.
In direct opposition, the Crows are developing nicely and are no longer pushovers, particularly at home. Tex has rediscovered his love for footy and his form and is leading his team admirably now that he’s no longer captain.
Let’s tip the home team!
