3AW Football

TODAY’S LINE-UP from 6PM: Matthew Lloyd, Daniel Harford, Dwayne Russell, Shane McInnes, and Nick Butler.

=====

FULL TIME 

Adelaide has kicked away for a 57-point win.

The tall timber of Jenkins, Walker, and Lynch all booted three goals for the Crows.

Josh Bruce finished with four goals as the sole shining light for the Saints.

Matthew Lloyd said the Saints had a “poor system off half-back”.

“Seb Ross has had close to 40 disposals, but he hardly went inside 50 with any of them,” Lloydy said.

HALF TIME 

Adelaide has sprinted away to a 41-point lead.

The Saints have booted just two goals so far, both to Josh Bruce.

3AW analyst Matthew Lloyd said the Saints are getting a lot of “junk” possessions.

“They’re a bit slow, one-paced, and they’re getting hurt,” Lloydy said.

Adelaide coach Don Pyke told 3AW the side is itching to bounce back from last week’s loss.

“We weren’t at the level we wanted to be at (against Geelong),” Pyke said.

“We’ve got some work to do to get better.

“We had a good discussion on Monday about what that looks like.”

St Kilda gun Seb Ross spoke to 3AW before taking to the field.

He said midfield has a plan for the whole Crow engine room, not just Rory Sloane.

“They’ve got some other dangerous midfielders,” he said.

“Matt and Brad Crouch are having super years.”

It’ll be on for young and old when the Crows and Saints clash in the City of Churches.

Adelaide will be out to reclaim top spot on the ladder, which they coughed up last Friday night in Geelong.

But the Saints have to keep touch with the Top 8, and can’t afford any more slip-ups if they’re to keep their dream alive.
