Team: Milera's timely return

Wayne Milera Junior will make a timely return for Sir Doug Nicholls Round as Adelaide take on West Coast at Adelaide Oval on Saturday afternoon.

The speedy half-back has been named in the side for the first time after recovering from an AC joint sustained in Round Five.

Milera’s inclusion is the sole change to the team that lost to Brisbane by one point in Round Nine, replacing Bryce Gibbs who has been omitted.

EAGLES: Premiership defender returns

Midfielder Matt Crouch (hip contusion) will miss a second week after failing to pass a fitness test on Thursday morning.

“He didn’t get through main training and wasn’t able to do all the movements that would make him available to play,” Crows Head of Football Brett Burton said.

“He was still limited on explosive high-end movements required by an inside midfielder.”

OPEN TRAINING: Fans invited to Adelaide Oval

Riley Knight, Josh Jenkins, Bryce Gibbs and Paul Seedsman are the emergencies.

The Crows will take on the Eagles from 4.05pm and the game will be broadcast live in SA on Channel 7 and nationwide Fox Footy, both from 4pm ACST.

Adelaide's SANFL side will not play this weekend due to a SANFL spilt round and will return on Saturday, June 1 against North Adelaide.

Adelaide’s Round 10 side is…

IN - Wayne Milera Jnr
OUT - Bryce Gibbs (omitted)
