Discussion: Adelaide will be looking to improve on a disappointing 2019 campaign which saw them finish 11th on the ladder and unable to get any sort of consistency going in the season.

It was a year to forget for the Crows that resulted in a number of list changes and also a new head coach at season's end.

The Crows decided to move on from Cam Ellis-Yolmen and Hugh Greenwood who both have found new homes, and have also moved away from the Josh Jenkins and Eddie Betts era up forward that had been so serviceable to them over the years.

The Crows will look to bring in some fresh youth and energy down forward and around ground to add more of a punch, led by exciting young players Darcy Fogarty, Reilly O'Brien and Chayce Jones.

With the Crouch brothers and Sloane still running the midfield, the cool heads of Laird, Smith and Talia running the backline and ex-captain Taylor Walker and Tom Lynch always looming as big goal threats, the Crows still have enough talent in the team to be in finals contention and should be in good stead to improve dramatically from their 2019 performance.
