Will the Western Bulldogs level their win-loss record, or will it be Adelaide who claim the points in this clash in Ballarat? Join The Roar for live scores and rolling coverage from 1:45pm (AEST).

A thriller awaits at Mars Stadium as both sides strive to bring their seasons back on track following impressive wins last week. The Crows defeated Richmond by 19 points, and the Dogs thrashed North Melbourne on Good Friday by 68 points.

Both teams will be without some key players this week, particularly the Dogs, with Lachie Hunter and Mitch Wallis out for personal reasons, and ruckman Tim English out with a 2-3-week hamstring injury.

Riley Garcia will also be out with a serious knee injury, while former Brisbane ruckman Stefan Martin will replace English for his 200th AFL game, and Robbie McComb will make his debut.

Josh Schache will also come in for the Dogs and Tim O’Brien will play his 100th AFL game.

The Crows will miss captain Rory Sloane for the rest of the season after suffering a serious injury to his right knee last weekend.

Coming in for Sloane will be Jackson Hately, who will play his fourth game for the club after arriving from GWS at the end of 2020.

To fill the captaincy void, coach Matthew Nicks has turned to his leadership group of Brodie Smith, Ben Keays, Reilly O’Brien and Tom Doedee to share the load for the rest of the season.


Former Crows skipper Taylor Walker will be one player to watch in this encounter after kicking nine goals since his return from suspension two games ago.

For the Bulldogs, Bailey Smith has the highest average for disposals per game of any player in the league with 35.8; the Crows will need to clamp down on him to snatch an upset win.

Can the Crows keep up their impressive form from last week’s exciting performance against the Tigers, or will the Dogs get their season back on track?

Excusing a draw, we know for sure that one team will take a 3-3 record back home, while the other slinks off at 2-4 and in trouble.


Bulldogs by 16 points
