THE TEAM NEWS

CARLTON

  • Carlton Blues did enough to overcome Gold Coast Suns as they made it back-to-back wins and they have now won four of their last six matches as they continue to pull away from the Suns at the foot of the ladder.
  • After a very disappointing start to the year, the Blues have come across some impressive form and will be hoping to keep their run going as they attempt to end the season as high as they can on the ladder.
  • The Blues have decided to rule out rising star Charlie Curnow for the rest of the season as he manages a knee injury whilst Matthew Kreuzer is also left out for this game with Andrew Phillips taking his place.

ADELAIDE

  • Adelaide Crows were defeated by Essendon Bombers in their important clash last week which could prove to be a pivotal result in the race to make the finals come the end of the regular season.
  • That loss saw Essendon leapfrog the Crows and open up a four-point gap but more importantly, Adelaide are now just four points ahead of the chasing pack outside of the top 8.
  • The Crows have made a few changes following their disappointing loss last week with Hugh Greenwood and Eddie Betts dropped whilst Alex Keath is rested so Tyson Stengle, Patrick Wilson and Andy Otten all come into the side.

THE PREDICTION

Adelaide Crows’ position in the top 8 is looking extremely precarious after their third loss from their last four games in their crucial contest with Essendon last week. The Crows now travel to face Carlton in what has become a must-win game for them. If Adelaide lose, they will find themselves under huge pressure and with Carlton in good form, they are not going to make it easy for their opponents and can pull off another surprise win.
