Game Chat – Adelaide vs North Melbourne

Written by Huttabito on August 19 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Adelaide Oval, Sunday, August 19, 4.10pm ACST

SUMMARY
It’s now or never for North Melbourne. After a woeful third quarter that cost the Kangaroos’ victory against the Western Bulldogs last Sunday, they must beat the Crows to keep their finals chances alive. The Kangaroos haven’t won in Adelaide since 2011. Like the Bulldogs, the Crows have little to play for apart from pride. The Crows are looking more like the side that reached last year’s Grand Final, but left themselves too much to do. Brodie Smith’s return in the past couple of weeks has been a bright spot, with the attacking half-back showing how much he’s been missed this year. Skipper Taylor Walker will miss the rest of the season having accepted a two-game suspension. Shaun Higgins, Ben Brown and Majak Daw are in great form, but the Kangaroos need more from their second-tier players. The Crows will be keen to give their supporters something to cheer about in their final home game of the season.

  2. Unless Crouch finishes on 160 I’m out of my main league even tho my opponent was down to 21. Both of us have been plagued by injuries but it’s looking like a tough loss

  3. Doedee benched with a shoulder at three-quarter time might just cost me four league wins today. And he was going so well.
    Ah well, he has given me more than I could ever have expected this year. Get well soon son
