Two Crows dropped for pre-season game

Adelaide midfielders Brad Crouch and Rory Atkins have been excluded from the Crows’ team to take on Gold Coast in a pre-season match on Friday after failing to meet preparation standards demanded.

Coach Don Pyke said the decision to omit the pair was taken following a recommendation by the Adelaide leadership group.

“Our players have established a trademark and standards which govern their behaviour both on and off the field,” Pyke said.

“In this instance, Brad and Rory did not meet those standards when the playing group had a break from training over the weekend.”
