Melbourne Demons Form


The Demons have found their mojo in the attacking 50 again. On top of an almost impenetrable backline, the Dees look primed and able for the up-and-coming finals. 

The Demons held off a resurgent West Coast side in Perth last Monday. The win on top of the two sides ahead stumbling, saw the Dees reclaim the top spot.

Adelaide Crows Form 


Adelaide fell agonisingly short last Saturday to cross town rivals Port Adelaide. After leading for almost all the match and on the cusp of a surprise win, a late goal let the Power get away with a four-point win.

The Crows are now 17th on the ladder and will avoid the wooden spoon with North Melbourne now guaranteed to finish bottom of the pile.

Adelaide Crows Team News 


Concussions for Brodie Smith and Will Hamill last weekend rule them out. Reilly O'Brien also joins the list of absentees.

Kieran Strachan and Shane McAdam are the two additions to last week's squad.
