Adelaide’s milestone pair from Sunday’s 73-point win over Gold Coast have both been named in the AFL Team of the Week.

Eddie Betts (300 games) and Brodie Smith (150 games) became the third and fourth Crows to earn a call-up in 2019.

Betts booted six goals against the Suns, including a potential Goal of the Year winner, and was named in the forward line.

Smith kicked two goals of his own and added 27 disposals, six inside 50s and four rebound 50s to be named on the half-back flank.
