Prediction

Sorely out of form this season, both Patrick Dangerfield and the Crows gave their fans a sniff of hope last week with an outstanding effort against Hawthorn, with Adelaide going down by just 11 points . Dangerfield showed why he was one of the pre-season favourites for the Brownlow Medal with a scintillating 35-possession game which also featured eight marks and two goals in his stat line. If he unleashes against the Giants, the new kids on the block will be in big trouble. They were impressive in the first half against Essendon and went to the long break leading by 21 points , but not for the first time this season they ran out of gas in the second half. Jeremy Cameron was outstanding with six goals, but with Jonathon Patton gone for the season, he won’t be getting much help up forward. He won’t have it all his own way this week against either Ben Rutten or Daniel Talia, two of the best key defenders in the competition. Crows by 59 points .
