Game Chat – Adelaide vs Gold Coast

Written by Huttabito on April 28 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Saturday, April 28, 7.10pm ACST

SUMMARY
This appears likely to be a comfortable win for Adelaide, despite the mounting injury list at the Crows. However, it would be foolish to write off Gold Coast, with its confidence growing every week under new coach Stuart Dew. The Suns are 3-2 after five rounds, more than halfway through a nine-week road trip forced on them by the Commonwealth Games. After 10 straight losses to the Crows, this could be the Suns’ best chance to end that drought, but beating North Melbourne, Carlton and Brisbane is one thing. Knocking off the Crows at Adelaide Oval, where they are an imposing 28-6 in their past 34 games, is an entirely different proposition. The Crows – also 3-2 – have had players step up. Tom Doedee has taken over Jake Lever’s defensive post, Paul Seedsman is covering for Brodie Smith across half-back and Cam Ellis-Yolmen and Hugh Greenwood are ripping in at stoppages. This a great test for the Suns to see how far they’ve improved this season.

Hutta’s Tip: Adelaide by 30 points.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Yes I would normally have loopholed with others on bench playing but Spargo , my mid loop all season, gets a game this week. Started the week well but got whacked by Holman and Coffield. Happens with rookies at times.

    1. Holman was totally uninterested. Will be out of my side next week I think.

      I saw him twice in the second half, both times he did nothing much.

      He wasn’t credited for a couple of tackles he laid though.

      1. I did feel that the Suns copped a pretty rough end of the pineapple from the umps. 29-14.

        A classic example was Fiorini laid a tackle on the Suns 50, brought his man down, incorrect disposal as the ball spilled free. Fiorini grabbed the ball, was grabbed immediately, no prior opportunity, was paid holding against him.

        It is getting beyond a joke.

      2. I think i will be doing the same…the dilema is this….who are the stand out mids…..?
        Who will be top 6….based on current performance etc etc is it worth waiting to see who really emerges?

        1. You can likely pick one of Danger, Dusty, Fyfe, Titch, Cripps, Oliver and Macrae for top8. If you’ve already got them all, then WOW and you can DPP for a DEF/FWD, if not, then they’re my current focus …

          Holman appears to have been pushed up with Barlow in (who would probably have scored pretty well but for SO many frees against). Will likely hold his spot.

          That all said, Holman’s BE next week is likely to be 37 (it won’t be more than 40 I guarantee you). Those who dropped him two weeks ago off one bad SC performance, kicked themselves. Just saying …

            1. I’d wait for his poor pre-injury score to wash though his price-cycle first. Will go down before he goes up and it will allow you to better assess how he’s travelling.

            2. MCrouch a great upgrade option – but doubt you’ll be able to get him for that cheap. After this round, he’ll drop about $35k, and another $20k (if he scores around 105-115 next round). He should bottom out around $550k in two rounds. If he drops lower it’s because he hasn’t resumed premium scoring and if that’s the case, would you really rush him in?

  8. Witts appeared to totally df dominate the ruck, and did more around the ground than Jacobs. Those numbers make no sense sometimes.

  9. Thank you Mr Holman…..you are excused from the table….second shocker in three weeks. Problem is most upgrade targets have further to fall (Crouch b/e 209, jpk 172, danger 163 etc…). So it looks like Oliver (117), then wait for danger after r14 if he keeps just plodding along.

    1. His BE will still only be 35 next week, so bench him if you’re not happy. Still has potential fattening ahead of him unless the role change is more permanent.
