Adelaide leads by 10 points at the main break, but they haven’t had it all their way.
Jimmy Bartel was impressed by the Crows’ maturity in limiting the Saints’ damage when they were in possession.
“They just rode the pressure and hit the scoreboard at vital times,” Jimmy said.
“That’s a danger sign for the Saints: the Crows haven’t hit full gear.”

St Kilda has made a late change ahead of the clash.
Tim Membrey (knee) has been withdrawn, with Nathan Wright coming in.
Adelaide is unchanged.
St Kilda could scarcely have been more disappointing last week.
And the task isn’t getting any easier, with last year’s Grand Finalists Adelaide flying high after victory over Richmond.
The Saints will have to turn things around in a big way. Can they overcome this massive hurdle?
