Adelaide has made two changes to its side set to face West Coast at Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

Key forward Taylor Walker returns following a week out due to health and safety protocols.

As announced on Wednesday, young defender Patrick Parnell will make his AFL debut.

Crows Head of Football Adam Kelly said Parnell had earned his call-up.

“Since being drafted in the mid-season draft 12 months ago, Patty has committed himself fully to make the most of his opportunity,” Kelly said.

“He has made significant gains over this time and at all stages has shown real determination.

“Patty is an elite ball user and excellent decision maker who does not shy away from the contest.

“The warm response of his teammates to the news of his debut shows the respect he has earned from our group.”
