Where and when: SCG, 1:45pm (AEDT)
Last time they met: R1 2020: Adelaide 11.5 (71) DEF BY Sydney 11.8 (74)
SYDNEY survived a late Adelaide fightback to secure a thrilling three-point win over the Crows at Adelaide Oval. The Swans held a 20-point lead when best on ground Isaac Heeney booted his fourth goal at the 15-minute mark of the final term before goals to Tom Lynch and Chayce Jones gave the Crows a sniff. Crows forward Taylor Walker then had a long-range shot at goal with less than 20 seconds on the clock to deliver victory in captain Rory Sloane’s 200th game and the first for new coach Matthew Nicks, but pulled his shot wide as the Swans hung on, 11.8 (74) to 11.5 (71). It would take until Round 14 before the Crows finally recorded their first win of the year.
Match Preview: The Crows will be up and about after their unbelievable win against the Cats last week. Sydney in Sydney will be a different proposition again. They too had a stunning win against a much-more-fancied opponent last week and will be a handful again with Budweiser returning.
