Adelaide Oval


One of the games we have all been waiting for sees the Cats host the ladder leading Crows. It will be the third game in a row that Geelong will play at Simonds Stadium.

This will be a big game for Chris Scott’s side, with questions still being raised about their legitimacy as a genuine premiership contender. Having only beaten three teams currently inside the top eight, they still have much to prove.

Adelaide embarrassed Fremantle last week and their only real fault this season came against North Melbourne. Playing the Cats in Geelong is always a difficult task and the Crows have lost nine games in a row at Simonds Stadium. Their last win at the ground came in 2003. However, if they can win the ball in the middle, their forward line should be too strong and they may finally break that drought.
