    Friday night football heads to South Australia, as the Adelaide Crows host the Collingwood Magpies. Join The Roar for live scores and coverage of the match from 7:50pm (AEST).

    Adelaide are coming off a strong win against the Saints, sitting 2-1 – their only blight being their opening-round loss against Essendon.

    Collingwood are 1-2, losses to the Hawks and Giants preceding their win against Carlton.

    With Rory Sloane, Bryce Gibbs and Rory Laird in great form, Adelaide look solid around the ground, and the inclusion of talented youngster Darcy Fogarty – who’s booted four goals in the first two matches of his career – only adds to a formidable forward line.

    Collingwood were unusually accurate last week, while looking generally strong elsewhere against the Blues. But Carlton are a very different team to the Crows, and they won’t have the home-ground advantage this time.

    Both sides have made just the sole change, with Adelaide losing 19-year-old rookie Lachlan Murphy to injury, and including young forward Darcy Fogarty.

    Collingwood, for their part, have lost Taylor Adams after the veteran injured his hamstring during training, and have selected Jordan De Goey for the first time after his off-season legal issue.

    Collingwood were impressive last week, but – you have to remember, with all due respect to the Blues – it was just Carlton. The Crows are a tough team at the best of times, even more so at home.

    The hosts will win, and probably fairly comfortably.

    Adelaide by 34 points.

      Where are all you Bucks haters hiding now? Beat the grand finalists on their home deck by 8 goals with a 19 year old kicking 5 and still missing Elliott, Wells, Fasolo, Adams, Greenwood and Moore. Here come the Pies.

        Keep your pants on Peter – it’s one game. No doubt one of the best games in Buckley’s reign. If we play like that every week then we’ll make the finals. The whole problem during Buckley’s reign has been the inconsistency. Next week we may come out and play like the Bendigo over 45s C grade team.

          Bretto is one of the worst type of Bucks haters, the ones claiming to support the club, there’s plenty more around, where’s your big mouth now Reservoir Animal?
          Regardless of ups and downs along the way some of us have faith in the professionals running the club.

          1. Those of you querying who the hell Sam Murray was last November are pretty quiet now.
          2. Those questioning letting Wellingham go , well that got us Grundy.
          3. Those querying taking a kid with a heart complaint in the draft? He just kicked 5 in his 4th game.
          4. Those calling Dunn a bizarre pick? Just killed the Adelaide forwards.
          5. Those claiming Aish can’t cut it?
          6. Those slamming Treloar?
          7. Those who claim Bucks can’t coach?
          8. Those writing off the season after 2 games?

          Perhaps next time defer to the people who know the club better than yourselves.

            Peter, not sure why I’m responding as you clearly don’t listen to anyone. Blindly supporting the status quo in not actually supporting the club if it is going backwards. To suggest you are a better supporter because you don’t criticize is just ignorant. I don’t hate Buckley, but I do question his ability to coach, which is amply proven in the results to date. Is Buckley a better coach now than we he started? Of course he is, Anyone would get better at something after doing it for 6 years.
            You frequently embarrass yourself on this site with your simplistic cheer leading. You often make suggestion that you have some sort of “inside” knowledge, and us mere mortals just don’t know what’s going on. I look forward to further posts from you to remind us all of your cutting insight and wisdom.

              Bretto, I’m not talking about me, I’m talking about those in power at the club knowing what they are doing. Their hard work is starting to pay off.

                I feel sorry for you Peter…this will be another average season … Friday proved how ordinary Adelaide are without their midfielders and the pies can beat teams without mids because we have loads of them… get a team with a half decent midfield and we struggle. .you rattle off names that are missing some of which Bjckley wouldnt pick anyway…… you can gloat if pies reach the fials for the first time in years…but to be frank if most coaches were given 7 years to get any sort of success they would be further than buckley is now…something you cant reasonably admit of course.

        Good win, Scribe. Goes to show ya’, every dog has its day! Let’s see the Pies back it up for a month or two before we get too excited young boy!

        Exactly Bretto. Last night was a terrific win, one of the best of Buckley’s coaching tenure.

        Unfortunately we’ve had great wins like this in recent seasons only to perform terribly the next few weeks.

        If we start performing like this on a consistent basis then I will start getting excited.

      Well I’m not going to hold back. That performance from the Crows last night was soft. inept, and uncommitted. It was shades of the 2017 Grand Final. As a Crows supporter I was disgusted. The players should be ashamed and embarrassed. In the first minute you see they weren’t up for the contest and nothing changed. Full credit to Collingwood who competed for the full 4 quarters but they didn’t have much opposition from Crows. If the Crows continue to be prone to performances like that they are no chance for the flag this season.

        More than a few parallels to the GF, with the margin being the same (48 points), along with a ‘kind of’ fightback in the 3rd quarter.

        Similar too, that when the game is not played on their terms, the Crows seem to find it hard to turn things around – and I’m including losses to Demons and Kangaroos last year in that.

        Or, perhaps as Bolton would say, we shouldn’t ‘catastrophise’, and instead say that all teams have bad weeks here and there, and this is just one of them.

      Collingwood have won their second Friday night match in a row, stunning the Adelaide Crows by 48 points with a brilliant performance.

      The first quarter, fresh off a massive rain downfall, was all the Magpies. They got off to a hot start, booting two quick goals before Adelaide – in the thirteenth minute – got a goal from a fifty metre penalty, their only major of the term. Collingwood added three more goals, and were comfortably leading at quarter time.

      The second quarter was more of the same, with Collingwood dominating both defensively and offensively, and whilst a little more downpour briefly affected proceedings, Adelaide struggled to move the ball cleanly and had little realistic attempts at scoring. The Magpies were on fire: young Jaidyn Stephenson had the first three majors of his career come half time, whilst Grundy was performing sen-bloody-sationally.

      Whilst most at the ground would’ve had the infamous Adelaide comeback and draw in this corresponding fixture last year, this Collingwood outfit was out for blood. Starting the third term with three consecutive goals, Adelaide Oval was falling silent as the Crows looked listless. The Crows, to be fair, did rally a little towards the end of the quarter – booting three late goals, but what would this sport be without a controversial umpiring call or two, which is what we got. There would be no such comeback from the Crows this evening, as Collingwood kept their foot on the pedal throughout the fourth, and cruised through to the end of the game.

      Perhaps the most pleasing thing for the Magpies would be how much they performed well as a collective squad. Steele Sidebottom and Brodie Grundy were their best – both with career high disposal counts (43 and 33 respectively), whilst Grundy also monstered Jacobs in the ruck. Treloar (36 touches and 11 tackles) was prolific, if a little typically rusty with some of the finer skills, whilst Stephenson booted five majors. Whilst I’ve only mentioned four, all twenty-two of their squad contributed well.

      The Crows, whilst largely poor, were served well by Rory Laird (leather poisoning with 37 touches), Paul Seedsman (29) and Rory Atkins (28). Gibbs played an excellent game – his two goals both excellent – whilst Sloane garnered 17 touches, but was largely well tagged by the opposition. Their forward line looked dysfunctional at times, and most in that part of the ground were very quiet.

      The Pies have ANZAC Day against the old enemies in Essendon to look forward to Wednesday week, whilst the Crows have Sydney next Friday night.

      Adelaide Crows: 9.4 (58)
      Collingwood: 16.10 (106)

      Well that has turned the season on its head. Where to now for Collingwood? Definite final 8 contender. A very fast team that has a dangerous backline that can run the ball very quickly. The most impressive aspect for me was their handballing under pressure. And I think they can improve. The best footy I have seen under Buckley considering the opposition and the venue.

      Back-to-back wins for the Magpies, and they’ve sensationally defeated the Crows by 48 points.

      Well, this is the best victory i’ve seen this year by any team.

      Pulverised a very good team on their home deck.

      Good job Pies.
