This has been Carlton’s worst start to a season in… ever.
On the other side, Adelaide’s form hasn’t been excellent, but they’re sitting 4-2 having lost to Essendon and Collingwood. But no, their third loss won’t be tonight to another of the big Victorian teams.
The Blues’ main man in the middle, Patrick Cripps, will be up against a former main Bluebagger in Bryce Gibbs. It’ll be Gibbs’ first match against his old side, and he’ll be among the biggest names in Adelaide’s midfield given Rory Sloane is yet to return.
Both teams have a number of changes. For the Crows, the injured Taylor Walker is the biggest exclusion, with a managed Riley Knight and omitted Myles Poholke joining him on the sidelines. In good news for the home team, Eddie Betts is back, along with Jake Kelly and Darcy Fogarty.
Carlton have three big outs, with Jack Silvangi dropped, but they’ve also lost Caleb Marshbank and Charlie Curnow to injury. In good news, they’ve regained the important Matthew Kreuzer, Jarrod Pickett and Nick Graham.
This’ll be a thrashing. I don’t usually proclaim any team have ‘no chance’, but Carlton are pretty close to that threshold.
Crows to win, and very comfortably.
Adelaide by 67 points.
