1. 2020 Recap

It was a long 2020 for the Crows, confirming they need a full rebuild of their list. Adelaide were winless up until Round 15 when they beat Hawthorn, which was followed up with impressive wins over finals hopefuls GWS and Carlton to finish with three wins for the season.

Veteran forward Taylor Walker struggled all season but did manage to become the Crows' all-time leading goal scorer in a rare highlight for Adelaide in 2020.

They blooded a lot of youth which was a key positive, with the likes of Lachlan Sholl, Shane McAdam and Harry Schoenberg were standouts for the wooden spooners as they look to the future.

The Crows, like a lot of young teams, struggled to maintain consistency during games all year. Their inexperience proved costly and you get the feeling that will be the case going forward.
