And at Adelaide Oval there will be joyous and emotional scenes as North Melbourne champion Ben Cunnington finally returns to an AFL field.
It’s been a harrowing and treacherous 13-month journey for the star Kangaroos midfielder who has had to overcome two bouts of testicular cancer, as well as a calf strain and a bout of COVID more recently.
But after getting through his first VFL hitout last week unscathed, the midfield bull is back and set to take on the Crows.
Adelaide is finishing the season well and is aiming for three wins in a row for the first time in two years, while they’re gunning for four consecutive victories against North for the first time since 2009.
However, their form at their home ground has been poor, with just two wins from their past seven games there.
Meanwhile, the Kangaroos are still winless at Adelaide Oval, having struck out there in all nine matches.
In fact, they’ve lost their last 11 games in Adelaide, with their last win in the South Australian capital coming back in 2011.
