The Australian coach visited the Crows to address players and coaching staff.
The Adelaide Crows will look to tap into the mind of Australian cricket coach Darren Lehmann as they look to make a push for finals football.
Lehmann, a Crows ambassador, addressed the players after watching them train at West Lakes.
Adelaide coach Brenton Sanderson said it was a fantastic opportunity for players and coaches to listen and share ideas with the man who has overseen Australia’s return to the top of test cricket.
“He’s one of the Crows ambassadors, he’s a big Crows fan so we’re really grateful today we’ve got the opportunity to spend some time with him,” Sanderson said.
“We’ll certainly pick his brain, different sort of concepts, different ideas, different systems that we can potentially work together to try and overlap some ideas.
“We can learn a lot, even though it’s a different industry and a different sport, there’s a lot of similarities between the coaches and the players.
“The anxiety – when you walk out to bat at the MCG on Boxing Day, similar anxieties [to] walking out on Adelaide Oval, first quarter of a Showdown.”
The Crows currently sit one win outside the eight in ninth position, and face Greater Western Sydney on Saturday.
