On this day: Modra bags 10

Flashback: North Melbourne, Modra's mark and 10 goals In 1993, the North Melbourne Kangaroos traveled to Football Park to take on the Crows.

On this day 26 years ago, Crows icon Tony Modra kicked a massive 10 goals for Adelaide in its 1993 Round Eight clash with North Melbourne.

It was the forward’s second 10-goal bag of the season, having also booted 10 against Richmond in Round One.

In just his second AFL season, 1993 was a historic year for Modra in front of goal, who went on to kick the most ever by a Crow in a single season with 129.

Crows captain Chris McDermott also had a day out, racking up 44 disposals - his equal career-high.

UPDATE: Doedee placed on inactive list

Despite the two outstanding individual performances, it wasn’t an easy win, with the Crows down by 26 points at three-quarter time.

They kicked six goals to one in the final term to fight back and win by two points, 19.9 (123) to North’s 18.13 (121).


Six years later, wingman Tyson Stenglein debuted for the Club, playing his first of 106 games in the tricolours.

Also on this day, reliable defender Michael Doughty played his 150th AFL game for the Crows, against Brisbane in Round Eight, 2009.

Doughty went on to play 231 games for Adelaide, retiring at the end of 2012.
