Preview

Adelaide continued their perfect start to 2017 with a Showdown win against their crosstown rivals and now come up against an Essendon side still figuring themselves out following a poor loss to Carlton.

The Crows were fantastic all over the ground, both in and out of the contest and as we all know are more than capable of racking up a big score. In saying that, Essendon will bounce back through their core midfielders and small forwards around the contest.

Adelaide shouldn’t have any troubles getting over the line, but it may be a struggle early on.

Adelaide by 33.
