Cats keen to continue Crows’ two-decade Kardinia curse
The inconsistent Cats are searching for back-to-back wins for the first time since Round 4, having gone win-loss for the past seven rounds.
It’s been 14 months since these two sides last played each other, and it was a joyous occasion for Adelaide who stunned the Cats by 12 points in Round 1 last year at Adelaide Oval.
Geelong’s recent form at their Kardinia Park fortress has been patchy, splitting their last six games there 3-3 after winning 41 of their previous 46 games at the venue.
Meanwhile, after starting the year in positive fashion with a 3-3 scoreline, the Crows are now desperate to stop the bleeding, having lost their last four games by an average of 41 points.
And it’s going to be a tough ask for them considering they’ve lost their last 11 games at Kardinia Park. Their last win there came 19 years ago.
Both teams will be down a superstar today with Paddy Dangerfield (Geelong) and Taylor Walker (Adelaide) out due to a calf injury and COVID protocols respectively.
