Defender Alex Keath and forward Tom Lynch have been included in the AFL.com.au Team of the Week for Round Eight.

The selection is another dose of praise for Keath who also won the Showdown Medal and scored a perfect 10 in the coaches’ votes.

In Adelaide’s 20-point win over the Power on Saturday night, the emerging defender registered a round-high 12 intercept possessions, seven rebounds and a career-high 26 disposals.

At the opposite end of Adelaide Oval, forward Tom Lynch booted three goals, handed off two more and collected 20 touches and six inside 50s.

Round Eight is the third time this year Adelaide has had two or more players selected for Team of the Week.

Keath leads nominations for the Crows with three - Round Four, Round Six and Round Eight.
