AFL NAB Challenge Live Adelaide Crows vs West Coast Eagles Stream AFL NAB Football 2016 Online, AFL NAB Cup Week 01 Match will be kick off at Unley Oval Stadium, South Australia, Australia. Sunday 21 February 2016 online, 13.35 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
While the Dockers are taking a full-strength side for their NAB Challenge opener against Richmond, the Eagles are leaving stars at home for their clash against the Crows.
Fremantle has named a number of key players, including Nat Fyfe for its game against Richmond in Rushton Park in Mandurah on Friday night.
Dockers coach Ross Lyon, who seemed to be sporting a new hairdo, joked Fyfe had gotten “out of his iron lung” to play.
“He’s had a full summer and he’s back early, so [the injury] couldn’t have been too bad,” he said.
The Eagles are taking a more conservative approach to their first pre-season game against Adelaide at SANFL side Sturt’s home ground Unley Park on Sunday.
Ruckman Nic Naitanui, power forward Josh Kennedy, midfield gun Matt Priddis, goalsneak Mark LeCras and captain Shannon Hurn won’t make the journey east.
Even Eagles coach Adam Simpson is staying in Perth, with West Coast’s assistant Justin Longmuir taking the reins.
The Eagles will be rolling out their new recruits: speedster Lewis Jetta from the Sydney Swans and Jonathan Giles from Essendon, who has joined the Eagles a back up ruckman to Naitanui and Scott Lycett.
West Coast draftees Jordan Snadden and Luke Partington will also get their first taste of AFL footy.
The game will also be defender Mitch Brown’s first outing since injuring his knee in round one last year.
