The Gold Coast Suns will be looking to back up their strong performance against Geelong in their first match of the season when they travel west to take on the Adelaide Crows for their final Marsh Community Series game. Join The Roar for live scores from 4:10pm (AEDT).
A weakened Cats outfit was no match for a rampant Suns team which seemed to have a point to prove, having lost their last eighteen matches in 2019. Particularly impressive were number one draft pick Matthew Rowell and former Crow Hugh Greenwood, both of whom will be keen to prove their first outing in new colours wasn’t a one-off.
Meanwhile, the Crows are still looking for their first official win under new coach Matthew Nicks, having lost to Melbourne in the first week of the Marsh Community Series.
They’ve named a stronger side for this match, however: veteran Taylor Walker and hard-running wingman Paul Seedsman both return after missing the Demons match for a wedding. Captain Rory Sloane will likely play more of a role as well, after being iced up after half time with a hip complaint two weeks ago.
