Midfielder Jackson Hately has been named to make his Adelaide debut in Sunday’s clash with Hawthorn at UTAS Stadium.

The South Australian is one of three inclusions to take on the Hawks, joining No.2 draft pick Riley Thilthorpe in pulling on the Crows colours for the first time.

Forward Elliott Himmelberg will also line up for his first senior game of Season 2021, named at centre half forward.

Hately arrived at West Lakes via the 2020 pre-season draft after 12 games at Greater Western Sydney.


The 20-year-old is averaging 25.5 disposals per game across his two SANFL appearances this year.

First-year Crow Sam Berry will miss Sunday’s game after rolling an ankle at training on Thursday, while forwards Billy Frampton and Tom Lynch are also out of the 22.

Frampton, Lynch, Chayce Jones and Josh Worrell have been named as emergencies, with one to be confirmed as the Crows' medical substitute one hour before the game.

Forward Lachlan Murphy is set to play his 50th AFL game against the Hawks.

Sunday’s Anzac Day game commences at 12.30pm AEST/12.00pm ACST and will be shown live nationwide on Fox Footy and on Channel 7 in Adelaide.

Adelaide’s Round Six team is…


IN: Hately, Thilthorpe, Himmelberg
