Everybody loves the Doggies as their unofficial “second team”, but surely we all have a soft spot for Adelaide after the year they’ve had? And with a finals berth on the line, haven’t they responded magnificently with impressive wins against Brisbane, Richmond and Essendon in the last 3 weeks. With Geelong’s loss on Friday night, the Crows have officially reached the final 8 for the first time since 2012.
Whether they’ve sealed a finals spot or not, Adelaide will want to maintain their momentum and push for a home final. But even playing at home, defeating West Coast will be no easy task with the Eagles coming off a massive win over the Bulldogs are home. No matter how many defenders the Eagles lose, they just keep winning and are arguable deserving of outright favouritism for the flag.
Can the Eagles maintain the rage on the road or will Adelaide’s fairy tale run continue?
Kudos to Mark Lecras on game 150.
Thommo’s tip: Adelaide by 20 points.
