MATCH WRAP: The Cats take down the Crows, who go one down with ACL

Geelong has beaten the Adelaide Crows by 24 points at the Adelaide Oval.

The Cats were dominant in the first half but the Crows managed to bring the margin back to three points going into the final term.

In the final term the Cats pulled away after decisive goals to Ablett, Miers and Rohan.

There are injury concerns with Paul Seedsman (knee) and Tim Kelly (ankle).

In good news for Geelong, Kelly was seen walking after the game.

Unfortunately the Crows released a statement stating that they suspect Seedsman has ruptured his ACL.

Adelaide will be looking for their first home win of the season tonight while the Cats will want to capitalise on their good start to 2019 and retain their position on the top of the ladder.

With only a five day break after beating Melbourne, Geelong may struggle to run-out the match. Crows defender Rory Laird cannot afford to have another quiet game as he did against the Swans if they want to transition quickly out of defense and exploit Geelong’s tired legs.

The Cats have not beaten the Crows at the Adelaide Oval in their last three matches.
