Thursday 13th of June 7:50pm AEST, Adelaide Oval
It’s great to have another Thursday night match to kick off the round, especially when it’s a match that has the potential to be an exciting one like we’ve got here with the Crows and the Tigers. Both teams have enjoyed similar success so far this season and will be desperate to head into the bye round with another win under their belts.
Realising they were lucky to come away with a win against the Demons in Round 11, we saw a much more determined Adelaide Crows outfit against GWS in Round 12. They trailed by four points at three-quarter time against the Giants, but a flurry of quick goals in the fourth quarter saw them run away 21-point winners at home. The Crouch brothers were prolific ball-winners and combined for 65 touches, while Josh Jenkins (three goals) brought his kicking boots.
The Crows latest win over the Giants takes their season record to 7-5 and propels them into fifth spot on the ladder, with a chance to jump into the top four if they win on Thursday night. They haven’t been the most convincing of the teams inside the top half thus far, but six wins from their last eight matches reads really well as they enter their last game before the bye.
The Tigers began well against the ladder-leading Cats in Round 12, outscoring them two goals to none in the first term. However, after that is was all one-way traffic in favour of the Cats, who would go on to kick 16 of the next 19 goals and win by a whopping 67 points. There weren’t too many good Tigers on the night, although Patrick Naish made a really nice debut with 20 touches and a goal.
Richmond were looking really solid after 10 rounds when they had a record of 7-3, but two poor losses on the spin has left them in a bit of a predicament. As it stands, the Tigers are in seventh spot on the ladder and still have a whole host of long-term injuries to deal with as we approach the second half of the season.
The Crows have a clear edge over the Tigers since their inception in 1991. They lead 24-14 all-time and 3-2 in their last five, although one of those losses just so happened to be in a Grand Final…
Last five meetings:
2018 R16 – Richmond (103) defeated Adelaide (56)
2018 R2 – Adelaide (118) defeated Richmond (82)
2017 GF – Adelaide (60) lost to Richmond (108)
2017 R6 – Adelaide (140) defeated Richmond (64)
2016 R3 – Richmond (92) lost to Adelaide (128)
It’s certainly an interesting little clash we’ve got on our hands to kick off Round 13. The Crows are by far the form team of the two with six wins from their last eight, although the Tigers have shown the ability to produce an emphatic performance without any prior warning signs. In saying that, it’s too hard to look past the form team on their home deck, which means we’ll be playing the Crows line here.
