The Wrap Up: Adelaide crush Carlton to end forgettable year on a high


Adelaide have ended their disappointing 2018 campaign on a high note, crushing Carlton by 104 points at Etihad Stadium tonight.

The Blues were annihilated from start-to-finish by a rampant Crows outfit as the embattled club were resigned to its worst season in 117 years.

Incredibly, Brendon Bolton’s side had seven more inside 50s but still lost by a three-figure margin.

Carlton’s paltry two wins is their lowest tally in a home-and-away season since 1901.

Here’s everything you need to know!

The Star: Josh Jenkins

Adelaide forward Josh Jenkins dined out against a hapless Carlton defence.

Jenkins ended the night with seven majors and 19 disposals to end his season a positive note.

The 29-year-old ended the year with a respectful haul of 46 goals.

Medical room: Curnow and Weitering suffer injuries

Carlton duo Charlie Curnow and Jacob Weitering were both casualties from the club’s mauling against the Crows.

Weitering was concussed after a heavy collision with teammate Sam Rowe and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest at three quarter time.

Curnow suffered a knee injury after landing awkwardly in a marking contest during the third term and also took no further part in the final term.
