Former Crows ruckman Sam Jacobs has spoken on the most memorable spray of his career, with the former three-club tall reflecting on an almighty earful from ex-Adelaide senior coach Brenton Sanderson.

During a clash at Docklands against the Bulldogs in 2013, Jacobs only managed to record eight possessions for the entire game and only won 24 hit-outs compared to former Dog's ruck Will Minson's 37.

The 34-year-old detailed the match, where he - alongside Bombers coach and former teammate Ben Rutten - was subject to one of Sanderson's biggest outbursts of his career.

“It was an early Sunday game against the Western Bulldogs at the Etihad and there’s vision of 'Sando'… unfortunately me and [Rutten] were in the gun," Jacobs told The Crows Radio Show.

“Will Minson started well, pushed me under the ball and was able to kick a goal. It was a cardinal sin for a ruckman, don’t get pushed under the ball.

“You’re walking around knowing you’re every chance of copping it.

“You’re sheepishly hiding and then you just see 'Sando; make a beeline for me and [Rutten].

“Sando is running hot, he turns at me and just gives us both barrels. Absolutely copped it, straight between the eyes.”

In a high scoring game, the Crows fell short to the Dog 131-114 and would end the season 11th with a record of 10-12 - Sanderson's second last season as coach.

Jacobs would also leave Adelaide at the end of the 2019 season, calling time on his 208-game career after one season with Greater Western Sydney.
