Danger game for the blues. We've never won here!!!! Average losing margin of 12 goals and Adelaide haven't been playing that badly and we haven't been playing that well.

I'm going, hoping to see history with our first win at AO.

Go blues.

Carlton have only played the Crows once at AO, in 2018. Previous away game against the Crows was Rd 4 2010 at AAMI!

They're wearing their '3D Anchor' guernsey as a part of Retro Round. They wore it as an away guernsey between 1998 and 2000.

As for the game, Freo kicking 3 goals in the half just puts more doubt as to whether or not they're able to kick a winning score against the best teams come finals time. They have the best defence/defensive system and lowest points against in the competition this season but they have the lowest points for off the current top eight by 85 points and their highest score against a top 8 team is 99 against Brisbane in round 12.

Just add water and they are no good, 0-4 in wet games.

Yep that was mentioned on commentary, Freo kicked two goals in the last half so unless something changes quickly for them and they can somehow generate more scores they're not getting anywhere near a Grand Final appearance.
