The Adelaide Crows took a regulation win over a St Kilda side that cracked in well in the first half, but lost momentum as they failed to take advantage of opportunities.

Final score
St Kilda Saints 7.13 (55)

Match preview:

The St Kilda Saints will be hoping they can bounce back strongly from a poor effort last week when they host the Adelaide Crows in Round 3 of the 2018 AFL season. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night, starting from 7:25pm AEDT.

Fair to say that St Kilda fans got a lot less on Good Friday than they were hoping they would, losing to North Melbourne by 52 points.

They were only down by nine at the final change, and it was a truly awful performance in the last term that saw the margin blow out.

They came into the season perhaps not expecting a finals berth but certainly hoping that it might be on the cards, but their first two weeks hasn’t made it seem likely.

In addition to their loss to the Roos, their Round 1 win over Brisbane was steady but hardly convincing.

As for the Adelaide Crows, they also find themselves 1-1 after two weeks in the season, but it’d be fair to say that it’s a much more impressive 1-1.

Their first-week loss to Essendon at Etihad Stadium was disappointed, but they really impressed with a strong win over Richmond in the Grand Final rematch last Thursday.

St Kilda as you’d imagine have made big changes with Rowan Marshall, Luke Dunstan, Brandon White and Nick Coffield all coming in. Coffield, last year’s No.8 draft pick, is on debut.

The Crows have Tom T Lynch and Richard Douglas back – Matt Crouch misses through injury, Darcy Fogarty is unlucky to be dropped.

Prediction
The Saints will come out with a point to prove but Adelaide are the better team.

Adelaide Crows by 18.
