    Match Preview:

    The Adelaide Crows host a Carlton Blues outfit coming off six straight losses. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 7:40pm (AEST).

    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.

      Good win by the Crows down a quarter of their best 22.

      Forcing them to the outside worked for 30 minutes.

      Interesting that Greenwood slides “down” a midfield position or 2 when Sloan and Crouch return – scary that he could only have the attention of the 4/5 best opposition midfielder.

      I’m buggered, so that’s all from me tonight. Two consecutive games – about six hours of footy – being blogged is quite an effort.

      Thanks for everyone who commented, and I’ll be back on Monday for Power Rankings and for some games next weekend!

      Enjoy Sunday footy tomorrow, everybody.

      Mitch McGovern with five goals. Curnow, Simpson and Thomas all collecting 26 touches. Carlton transforming themselves for the better mid game. Carlton preventing a 100 point loss. Adelaide providing some awesome goals, and ball movement.

      For a game so many (including me) were cynical about, there was much to enjoy, really.

      Adelaide: 19.11 (125)
      Carlton: 10.10 (70)

      only the jazz on the stereo and a few ‘sherbets’ has got me through the evening AD.

      Not sure how you do it young man but well done all the same.
