Check out how the teams line up in their first clash of the AFL season.
Both sides have plenty of first-choice players out, but that will matter little after the first bounce of the 2014 AFL season for the Geelong Cats and the Adelaide Crows.
All eyes will be on James Podsiadly as he plays his former teammates for the first time, while the game will be Jimmy Bartel’s 250th game in the top grade with the action beginning in under an hour at Simonds Stadium.
