Eight untried Crows will be out to impress in Sunday’s JLT Community Series clash with Fremantle.

Defender Tom Doedee, second-year midfielder Matt Signorello and rookie-listed pair Paul Hunter and Lachlan Murphy have all been selected to play their first JLT Community Series games.

Onballer Myles Poholke and utility Harry Dear, who have featured in previous pre-season campaigns but are yet to make their AFL debuts, will also receive an opportunity.

Doedee, Signorello, Dear and Murphy were all part of Adelaide’s winning AFLX team last week.

As announced on Thursday, Crows fans will get their first look at trade period recruits Bryce Gibbs and Sam Gibson in Club colours at Strathalbyn Oval.

Gibbs, 28, has returned to South Australia after 231 games for Carlton.

Gibson, who played 130-consecutive matches for North Melbourne, also adds to Adelaide’s midfield depth this season.

Draftee Darcy Fogarty, forwards Elliott Himmelberg and Ben Davis and rookie Patrick Wilson, who were included in an extended squad on Thursday, have been named as emergencies.

Forward Tom Lynch will be acting captain on Sunday.

Taylor Walker (foot), Riley Knight (ankle), Jordan Gallucci (foot) and Brodie Smith (knee) were unavailable for selection through injury.

Experienced players Rory Sloane, Eddie Betts and Richard Douglas also won’t feature this weekend as part of their ongoing preparations for the season proper.

Midfielders Brad Crouch and Hugh Greenwood are building up their training loads with a view to playing in Adelaide’s second pre-season game against Port Adelaide on March 10.

In the first round of the JLT Community Series, clubs can name teams of up to 26 players which includes eight on the interchange.

Sunday’s game at Strathalbyn Oval starts at 1:35pm (local) with gates open from midday.

Adelaide members with game access will have free entry to the 2018 JLT Community Series matches in which the Crows are competing. Members with game access can scan their membership card at the ground for free general admission into matches (subject to capacity).

In order to guarantee entry, members have the opportunity to register for a ticket online (subject to availability, upgrade fees may be applicable).

All JLT Community Series matches will be broadcast on Fox Footy and can also be viewed on the AFL Live Official App.
