Former Crows defender responds to explosive camp report


Former Adelaide Crows defender Alex Keath admits he read The Age’s investigative report into the infamous 2018 pre-season camp, which was released over the weekend.

Keath, who is now at the Western Bulldogs, was part of the Crows outfit who were part of the camp which one anonymous player said tore apart the club.

The 28-year-old said the article published by Sam McClure was “probably accurate” but was keen to move on from the tumultuous period.

“I had a look (at the story published on Sunday),” Keath said on SEN Breakfast.

“The (article) was probably accurate but I’d certainly moved on from the camp and I think most people have so it’s probably going over a few things that have been written a few times over now.

“Most people have moved on from that.”

Keath said it was an “attractive” story to write about considering Adelaide’s struggles following their heavy defeat to Richmond in the 2017 Grand Final.

“We certainly don’t talk about it (with other former Crows teammates) as much as the media talk about it,” he said.

“It’s probably an attractive thing to write about and it’s easy to link that to the difficulties the Crows are having on the field and it keeps popping its head up but I think it’s been written about a few times over now.”

Keath left Adelaide at the end of 2019 after requesting a trade following four seasons at the club.
