"ADELAIDE prime mover Matt Crouch has been ruled out of Saturday's top-eight clash with Brisbane at the Gabba.


Crouch has a small muscle tear in his hip and failed a fitness test on Friday morning.


The All Australian midfielder is averaging 31.2 disposals and 4.2 clearances per game this season.




Bryce Gibbs – who missed last weekend's Showdown with a back injury – replaces Crouch in the side, with Myles Poholke added to the emergencies."

Going to be tough without the prolific ball winner in MCrouch, but hopefully Gibbs can get more midfield role and regain some form.
CEY, here's your time to shine!

I can't remember a time when our depth was this good. Bringing Gibbs in for an injured M Crouch with Seedsman et al playing in the reserves tomorrow and so many there banging the door down!

We should get the comprehensive weekly update from the club tomorrow (Tuesday).
Yeah sorry I was going to edit my post and got sidetracked
My ref was that there was no mention of ROB’s injury in that post match report
Yet stories posted of wheelchairs and crutches I believe were posted on this board

Assuming all 3 "tests" play, that would be the shortest injury list the Crows have had in a very, very long time.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Smith, Sloane, ROB and Keath all banged up though, which is a concern. Probably our best four players in our winning streak.
Thats the bigger concern for me. They may play, but are they so banged up where their presence is an issue on the ground.

Sauce SANFL next week. WOW only Seedsman on the list after this round touch wood. One mighty strong SANFL side. Now we just gotta get support to the games. Will be pretty embarrassing making a GF and no one going.

Anyone else see the sneaky training footage on Ch 7 or 9 last night which showed Matt Crouch recoiling from contact in apparent agony, referencing his hip area?

Seemed like he copped a hard knock or re-injured himself.
