Crows milestones in 2019

There will be plenty to celebrate in 2019, with a number of Crows approaching significant milestones this season.

Eddie Betts is just five games away from joining the coveted 300-game club after reaching 295 in 2018.

The three-time All Australian would become the sixth Crow to play 300 AFL games, behind Andrew McLeod (340), Tyson Edwards (321), Mark Ricciuto (312), Ben Hart (311) and Scott Thompson (308).

In 2018, he ticked off a number of personal milestones including the birth of his twin daughters in April and reaching 100 in the tricolours in Round Nine.

Just 27 goals shy, Betts will also be aiming to record his 300th goal for the Club, while he needs 37 to record 600 AFL goals.

Veteran Crow Richard Douglas currently sits 13 games away from reaching 250, while Sam Jacobs is just four games from clocking up 200 AFL games.

Rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in 2017 put Brodie Smiths plans of reaching 150 games on hold but the half-back’s strong return last season put him just five games away from reaching the milestone.

Forward Josh Jenkins (136 games) and defender Luke Brown (135) are also approaching 150 AFL games in 2019.

After kicking 46 majors to take out Adelaide’s Leading Goalkicker Award in 2018, Jenkins is just one goal shy of Club legend Andrew McLeod’s tally of 275 career goals and 26 away from reaching 300.

Former Club Champion Matt Crouch is likely to reach 100 games this season, currently sitting on 90, while Paul Seedsman (88) and Kyle Hartigan (82) are not far behind.

Following a breakout year in 2018, Wayne Milera Junior (43) is set to reach 50 games, along with Riley Knight (39), Hugh Greenwood (37) and Cam Ellis-Yolmen (29).
