THE TEAM NEWS

ADELAIDE CROWS

  • Adelaide Crows were on the end of yet another big defeat as their miserable AFL campaign continued last week and things do not get any easier as they welcome Collingwood to Adelaide Oval.
  • The Crows were beaten 37-88 by Melbourne on Wednesday to leave them at 0-10 and they come into this game having scored fewer points than any other side whilst unsurprisingly conceding the most points too.
  • They come into this without the suspended Lachlan Murphy, injured Will Hamill and managed Daniel Talia with Chayce Jones and Jake Kelly also dropped so Brodie Smith, Kyle Hartigan, Andrew McPherson, Shane McAdam and Tyson Stengle come into the side.

COLLINGWOOD

  • Collingwood avoided a third straight loss as they overcame Sydney Swans last week but the Magpies were underwhelming once again and they will be keen to improve against struggling Adelaide Crows.
  • The Magpies had to overcome a half-time deficit to earn the win but they were pushed all the way by the Swans and needed a late goal to ensure their victory.
  • They have lost Will Hoskin-Elliott, Jamie Elliott, Isaac Quaynor and Adam Treloar to injury whist Ben Reid and Darcy Moore are managed which sees Tim Broomhead, Chris Mayne, Darcy Cameron, Lynden Dunn, Rupert Wills and Travis Varcoe earn call-ups.

THE PREDICTION

Adelaide Crows have shown very few signs of ending their winless run in 2020 and they could be in for more pain as they host Collingwood. The Magpies have not been at their best this campaign but have the potential to challenge for the Premiership, although they will be keen to improve on their 5-4-1 record to give themselves some breathing space in the hunt for the finals. The Crows have been poor on both sides of the ball and having conceded over 100 points in each of their last three clashes with the Magpies, the away side should be able to win by a margin of at least 18 points here.
