AFL players can be quite superstitious when it comes to pre-game rituals.

On Sunday’s episode of The Crows Show we find out a strange habit forward Tom Lynch has before he plays.

At this time of the season recovery is crucial and the Club is exploring a unique way to speed up the process.

Jumping in a chamber with the temperature set at minus 110 degrees doesn’t sound like fun, but we get Rory Sloane to explain the benefits.

Big-man Josh Jenkins talks to us about what it’s like playing against former teammates and reveals just how difficult it was to return from his early-season rib injury.

Former Crow-turned-Bomber Hayden Skipworth reflects on his playing days and talks us through his current coaching role at Essendon.

And first-year player Jordan Gallucci gets his turn on Brodie Smith’s Hot Seat.

For the full interviews and more behind-the-scenes insights tune in to Channel Seven at 11.30am on Sunday for The Crows Show, brought to you by Chemist Warehouse.

The show will then be available on our website and app. It is also replayed nationally on 7Mate early in the week. Please check your local TV guides.
