Match Report

Premiership favourites four weeks ago, Carlton were dealt a harsh reality check from a red-hot Adelaide outfit. It was a highly entertaining opening term as the Blues took a three-point lead into the first break. But it was all the Crows after that point, amazingly piling on 15 goals to three to come away with a 69-point win. It was Adelaide’s first win in Melbourne since round 22, 2009, ending a 15-game losing streak in Victoria. The Crows have silenced the critics who said they had a soft draw. Brenton Sanderson’s side have come with three-straight wins over Sydney (away), Geelong and Carlton (away). Adelaide midfielder Patrick Dangerfield (35 possessions and two goals) was again stunning and continued his breakout season. Adelaide’s forward line was cohesive, while the Blues’ looked extremely dysfunctional. Heath Scotland and Chris Judd played well for the Blues, but the rest of the side struggled. To make matters worse, star midfielder Marc Murphy injured his shoulder and would miss close to six weeks.

COACHES COMMENTS
Brett Ratten (Carl): Our players knew exactly where the Adelaide Crows sat on the ladder and what their output was, so we didn't get surprised by what they delivered today. Our challenge was to equal it or better it, and really we didn't come up to the mark by a long way.

Brenton Sanderson (Ade): As coaches, we were sitting in the box and a couple of times we just had to sit back and [say] 'have a look how hard they're crashing in at the contest'. That wasn't just one or two players - that was the whole 22. Everyone who put on a Crows jumper today was ferocious in every aspect. They were desperate and they just didn't let up which is something I'm really impressed with.

Umpires: Farmer, Leppard, McInerney
