Adelaide Oval


The Western Bulldogs are set for a massive test on Friday night travelling to Adelaide to take on the Crows. It’s been another week fuelled with media talk discussing the Dogs. Once again their performance this year has been on the agenda, while Luke Beveridge spoke strongly about the treatment of Jason Johannisen.

Adelaide sit in second, wedged between the Giants and Geelong. They will continue to try and lock up a top four spot, and despite the Dogs being placed 10th, they will be very wary of the reigning premiers.

These two have shared some excellent battles over recent time, and the head-to-head stands at 4-4 over the past eight games. Hopefully it lives up to the hype of years gone past, but Adelaide at home should take the four points.
