SPORT 51 COURIERMAI­L.COM.AU TUESDAY AUGUST 11 2020 Pies swooping changes JONES’ CHANCE TO REFRESH ADELAIDE v COLLINGWOO­D TONIGHT, 6.35PM, ADELAIDE OVAL last week’s disappoint­ing loss to Melbourne. Crows coach Matthew Nicks confirmed Jones would miss the Magpies game along with Daniel Talia, who will be rested and replaced by Kyle Hartigan, while Brodie Smith is confirmed to return from a knee injury. “We won’t be having nine changes but we will still have a few,” Nicks said. ADELAIDE has dropped first-round draft pick Chayce Jones for tonight’s clash with Collingwoo­d in the hope it will allow him to mentally refresh and attack the latter part of the season. The second-year midfielder (pictured) has struggled to have an influence in all 10 games this year, and has had single-figure disposal counts in the past three, including just three touches in Brown Hartigan Laird McPherson McAsey Doedee Smith Crouch Sholl McHenry Walker Lynch Fogarty Himmelberg Stengle O'Brien Schoenberg Keays Crocker Mackay McAdam Seedsman Kelly Poholke Atkins Strachan Hartigan McAdam McPherson Smith Stengle Hamill Jones Kelly Murphy Talia Crisp Roughead Dunn Maynard Madgen Noble Phillips Sidebottom Daicos Stephenson Mihocek Thomas Brown Cameron Ruscoe Grundy Adams Sier Broomhead Mayne Varcoe Wills Scharenber­g Lynch Murphy Brown Broomhead Cameron Dunn Mayne Varcoe Wills Elliott Hoskin-Elliott Moore Quaynor Reid Treloar B HB C HF F R Int Emg In season due to the Round 2 draw against Richmond. The clash against the Crows – which is the third in that fourgame burst – will see Lynden Dunn and Tim Broomhead make heart-warming returns. The injury-cursed pair has missed a combined 1637 days. Dunn has not played in 733 days after two knee reconstruc­tions while Broomhead replaces Jamie Elliott (ear). COLLINGWOO­D has pulled six changes for tonight’s match with stars Darcy Moore and Ben Reid spared the flight to Adelaide. The Magpies have targeted the match against the woodenspoo­n favourite to rotate players as they sweat through four games in three states across 14 days. The Pies simply need to secure the four points because their percentage is unlikely to impact their ladder position this Out Crows $4, Magpies $1.28 Watch live on Fox Footy, Kayo TV: SAM LANDSBERGE­R REECE HOMFRAY V1 - BCME01Z01M­A PRINTED AND DISTRIBUTE­D BY PRESSREADE­R PressReade­r.com +1 604 278 4604 ORIGINAL COPY .
