Adelaide’s potent forward line was at its devastating best in the Crows’ 46-point win over Melbourne on Saturday night.

Returning from viral meningitis, key linkman Tom Lynch showed no signs of illness, playing a crucial role in the victory with 27 disposals, 11 marks, four inside 50s, three goals and a team-high 579 metres gained.

Captain Taylor Walker was dominant, finishing with 21 touches, eight marks and four goals. Mitch McGovern, Eddie Betts and David Mackay also finished with multiple goals.

Rory Laird was prolific with 34 disposals and nine rebound 50s, Matt Crouch had 31 disposals while brother Brad had 27 and seven tackles. Richard Dougals (23 disposals at 83% efficiency, six inside 50s) and Charlie Cameron (20 disposals, eight inside 50s) also played roles through the midfield for the Crows.

Daniel Talia and Luke Brown played key roles in defence, conceding just two goals between them while combining for 36 disposals, 11 marks and 16 spoils.

Polls opens immediately after every Crows game. Users assign three votes to the player they deem Adelaide’s best contributor, two to the second-best and one vote for their third most valuable Crow in each match.

Polling closes on Tuesday at 4.30pm (SA time) after each round when the final votes are collated using a points system.

A maximum of 100 points per game can be awarded to the entire team. Each player is given a percentage of the total votes received to go towards their season tally (For example, if 1,200 votes were placed in Round One and Taylor Walker receives 600 then that is the equivalent of 50 per cent of all votes for that round and he would receive 50 points towards his season tally. If the second best player received 120 votes from 1,200 then that is the equivalent of 10 per cent and he will get 10 votes towards the season tally).

This process is repeated each round and players accumulate points towards their season tally. The player at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the season is crowned the Crows Fans’ MVP.
