The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos will be hunting a maiden Grand Final berth when they meet Adelaide in a preliminary final at Ikon Park on Sunday afternoon.

Fresh from their week off, the Kangas will enter the do-or-die match-up on a high following a resounding 41-point qualifying final win over the Demons, while the Crows are coming off a commanding semi-final victory over Sydney.

Everything is set up for this to be a blockbuster.

The opposition

The Crows flexed their muscles in last weekend’s semi-final, triumphing convincingly over elimination-final winners Sydney by 67 points at Norwood Oval.

Anne Hatchard was unstoppable for the home side, finishing with 36 disposals, 10 marks and two goals, while midfielder Ebony Marinoff continued her impressive individual campaign by recording 26 touches and 14 tackles.

Adelaide is 1-0 at Ikon Park this season and, more notably, hasn’t fallen to North Melbourne in the past three meetings between the clubs.

The in-form Roo

Jasmine Garner

After her influence was quelled against the Demons back in Round 8, Garner wasn’t going to be shut down again in the qualifying final.

The No.25 dictated terms in midfield with and without the ball, gaining a game-high 26 disposals and 12 tackles to help lead her side to a ground-breaking win.

She received the maximum AFLCA Champion Player of the Year votes for her efforts last time out against the Crows, and will be out to have a similar impact this weekend.


Last time we met

Adelaide 6.5 (41) def. North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos 5.8 (38), Round 9, 2023

If the last clash between these two clubs is anything to go by, then expect an absolute nail-biter of a contest on Sunday.

Looking to respond to a disappointing Round 8 loss to Melbourne, the Roos headed to South Australia for another top-four test against the Crows.

A well-executed game plan had Darren Crocker’s side up on the scoreboard with time ticking away in the fourth term, but a last-gasp goal for Adelaide winger Niamh Kelly broke the visitors’ hearts.

Garner (27 disposals, two goals) and Ash Riddell (31 disposals, six clearances) were immense in midfield, as was Mia King, who tallied 26 touches and eight tackles.


Injury update

Besides Zoe Savariryan's ongoing recovery from an ACL injury, the Roos have a clean bill of health heading into selection.

Forward Ailish Considine (hamstring) and defender Cassidy Mailer (thigh) have both proven their fitness and will enter consideration.
