Adelaide Crows poach yet another A-Grade gun from Carlton


The Adelaide Crows have pulled off a significant coup and secured Carlton superstar Matthew Wright to captain their SANFL team in 2019. 

In deciding to cross the border, Wright follows superstars Sam Jacobs, Eddie Betts, Bryce Gibbs and Tea Tree Gully premiership player Troy Menzel in leaving the flailing Blues to join the Crows.

Speaking to the Journal, Wright said his decision was easy.

“I’m only 28 and I’ve got a few years of footy ahead of me. I would genuinely rather play for an SANFL team that only won one game last year than spend another second playing for Carlton. At least this way I get some silky delivery from the likes of Matty Signorello.”

Wright, who led Carltons goal kicking in 2016, is expected to play primarily as a small forward, filling a need for the Crows that has existed since the delisted Matthew Wright in 2015.

CEO Andrew Fagan spoke about the move, highlighting that Wright will become a Crows Development coach, replacing the outgoing Tate Kaesler.

“When Tate left, we knew we had to get the absolute best person to replace him. After conducting a thorough nationwide search, we couldn’t believe it when that person just happened to be an ex Crows player once again. Who would’ve thought!”
