The Adelaide Crows are keen to keep their stunning start to the season going against the Fremantle Dockers at the Adelaide Oval. Stay up to date with their AFL clash with live scores on The Roar from 1:10pm (AEST).
The reigning wooden spooners have looked nothing like the team they were a year ago in the early going, winning three of their opening four matches to match last season’s win tally inside the first month. With several of their promising youngsters going to a new level – not to mention Taylor Walker’s renaissance – the Crows look like a genuinely dangerous team.
Fremantle have also enjoyed a resurgence this season and have looked like a difficult team to play against – at home. Their two wins this season have been comprehensive efforts at the comforts of Optus Stadium, but their two trips outside Perth have resulted in similarly comprehensive losses. They’ll look to close the gap between their best and worst this afternoon.
The Dockers got up by 20 points when these sides met last season, but Adelaide have won four of their last six meetings. Freo have a shocking record at the Adelaide Oval, winning on just one of their nine visits – back in 2015 – and losing the other eight by an average of 52 points.
