Adelaide vice-captain Rory Sloane has appealed to his star teammates Patrick Dangerfield and Taylor Walker to stick with the Crows, with both players coming out of contract at the end of next season.
Sloane says he wants to remain with the Crows when his contract expires at the end of 2015, and told media he hoped Dangerfield and Walker do the same.
“I actually love the city and the club as well, to play 100 games here has been pretty special,” Sloane said.
“(I’ll) definitely look to stay and hopefully we can keep Tex (Walker) and Dange (Dangerfield) as well and all stick together.
‘This year has been frustrating. We are still pretty young and the three of us are in the leadership group along with ‘Sauce’ (Sam Jacobs), ‘Thommo’ (Scott Thompson) and ‘Dougy’ (Richard Douglas), and the more we stick together the next couple of years the more we’ll learn.
“Last week against North and against Richmond where we’ve been in front in the last quarter…I’m sure you’ll see us start winning those games.”
All three players are expected to attract attention from big-spending clubs.
Even if the Crows defeat St Kilda on Sunday, they must rely on other results to reach the AFL finals.
