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