Where and When: Metricon Stadium, Sunday 13 September at 1:05pm AEST
Last time they met: Rd 19, 2019: Carlton 13.9 (87) def Adelaide 9.6 (60) at Marvel Stadium.
Match Preview: It shocked me last week that the Blues can still make the top 8! Despite almost throwing the match against the Swans, they eventually prevailed (just) and are only one match and percentage out of finals. A few weeks ago, a match against the Crows was a chance to boost percentage but unfortunately for the Blues, that no longer seems the case.
The Blues will need to play better than last week if they want to defeat the Crows that is boasting a resurgent midfield of Sloane, Laird and the Croach brothers.
Supercoach Watch: Carlton: All the talk is about Sam Walsh who reminded many people how good he really is. Many teams also have Docherty, Martin and Cripps but they are not quite as popular as they once were, especially with whispers that Doc is carrying an injury.
Adelaide: I don’t know about you, but I am loving owning Rory Laird late in the season. I do have some Matthew Crouch envy as he has been smashing it. A few bargain hunters may also have the wrong Crouch or Rory Sloane.
Thommo Watch: Pre-match, I am worried that Doc will miss this match. Once the ball is bounced I’ll be cheering on Crippa who looks to be playing sore.
Thommo’s Tip: Blues by 6 points.
