News:

It might have felt like perfection for Adelaide fans but coach Don Pyke says his side’s 138-point thumping of Brisbane was no more than a step in the right direction.

A week after Pyke challenged his players to be ruthless after they conceded late goals in their demolition of Essendon, the Crows stepped on the Lions’ throats, piling on 13 goals to one in the second half of their 27.15 (177) to 6.3 (39) win at Adelaide Oval.

The percentage-boosting win propelled Adelaide to third on the AFL ladder ahead of clashes with Fremantle, Port Adelaide and West Coast.

Pyke said he was pleased with his side’s relentless attitude but stopped short of describing it as a perfect win.

“We don’t really judge it by that. We just look at how we want to play,” he said.

“We can review the game and we’ll find errors in every game. That’s just how it is.

“As I’ve said since day one, we’re really just continuing to try and improve.

“Tonight we took another step forward. We get another four points but the reality is we move on pretty quick.”

Adelaide’s potential to cause damage in the finals was made clear in their spread of goalkickers against Brisbane.

Star forwards Eddie Betts, Taylor Walker and Tom Lynch each booted four majors, Josh Jenkins had three, and a total of 14 Crows shared in the goals.

The final margin was just one point shy of being both the Lions’ biggest-ever loss and the Crows’ biggest-ever win.

Adelaide went into the game without two of its most durable veterans in injured ruckman Sam Jacobs and midfielder Scott Thompson, who was rested.

Pyke said he was yet to decide who else might be managed in coming weeks as the Crows gear up for the finals.

Jacobs will be assessed early in the week after being ruled out of the Brisbane game with a sprained ankle.
