We're jetting off to one of the most friendly stadiums for visiting teams (😶...) to take on the in-form Crows.

It's set to be a fiery contest from the start, with the stats showing that we and the Crows are two of the best first quarter teams in the comp.

The reinforcements have arrived too, with Darcy Gardiner and Daniel Rich set to return for us, while Adelaide will regain Tex Walker and Tom Doedee.

We've collated the data and this is everything you need to know before bounce! 

Last time we met

It was pretty good viewing last time we played the Crows at Adelaide Oval! Here's what the AFL had to say: 

"Brisbane livewire Charlie Cameron has torched his former club Adelaide with four goals in a 36-point away victory for the Lions. 

Brisbane came from 15 points down in the second quarter to overpower the Crows, winning 16.6 (102) to 9.12 (66) at Adelaide Oval on Saturday night.


Cameron, Brownlow medallist Lachie Neale (35 disposals, one goal, seven clearances) and Zac Bailey (three goals, 19 touches) were instrumental as the Lions took top spot on the ladder ahead of Sunday's games.

Captain Dayne Zorko (26 possessions, two goals), Hugh McCluggage (22 disposals), Jarryd Lyons (24, eight clearances) and Daniel Rich (26) were other standouts in the Lions' eighth win from nine matches this season."

Dizz & Richy's Return

Darcy Gardiner will line up for his first match of the season this weekend in a valuable boost following the loss of Jack Payne to concussion. 

We're pretty excited about his return to the top level! Our reliable defender has featured in two appearances in the VFL this year after overcoming an achilles injury and will have a big task against either Tex Walker or Darcy Fogarty. 

And we're sure Adelaide fans won't be too chuffed about Daniel Rich's return to the side, with our booming left footer overcoming a calf injury that saw him miss the last three matches. 

We'd love some snags from 60m if you're reading this Richy!


Match-ups we're keen to see

Josh Dunkley vs Jordan Dawson

It goes without saying that games are won in the middle, but this particular battle at the coal face has us very, very intrigued. 

Dunks and Dawson are the same age, same height and same super contribution (who knows about that part), and both in terrific form heading into Sundays clash.

For the stats heads out there, Dawson averages 26.5 disposals, 4.4 marks and 4.9 tackles a game and is lethal by foot, while Dunks is averaging 25.2 disposals, 6.1 marks and 6.3 tackles and will play a key role in stopping the Adelaide surge forward.
