Game Chat – Essendon v Adelaide

Written by Thommo on August 15 2015

Adelaide don’t generally play well at Etihad stadium but with the Bombers only winning one of their past ten games, the Crows will start clear favourites today. A good win will likely allow Adelaide to jump back into eighth spot so don’t expect the Crows to slow down if they jump out to an early lead.

The young Bombers have shown good form in patches such as the first half against the Giants last week, but it will be a big ask for them to match it with the clearance kings of Adelaide for the entire four quarters. Are they up to the challenge?

Thommo’s tip: Adelaide by 25 points.
