AFL Teams Round 8 2024

Defensive reinforcements have arrived just in time for Adelaide, with an all-new backline named after Thursday night’s Showdown LV.

The Crows will see star draftsman Dan Curtin debut, while Jordon Butts and Brodie Smith also return.

Coach Matthew Nicks has dropped two players to make way for them, with Will Hamill and James Borlase missing out, while Luke Pedlar loses his place through injury.

As expected, Port Adelaide will be without Aliir Aliir (concussion) and Sam Powell-Pepper (ACL).

Ryan Burton and Jed McEntee come into the side as replacements, with Power captain Connor Rozee keeping his place despite suffering a hamstring injury against St Kilda last week.

The rest of the teams for Round 8 will be announced at 6:20pm AEST on Thursday.
