No one is protected against selection ax: Walker


Adelaide co-captain Taylor Walker says no one is safe from the selection ax in the wake of the 57-point loss of the Crows to Port Adelaide on Saturday.

After Walker kicked the first goal of the second half, the Crows gave up the next nine, as they were completely defeated by the Power, 15.11 (101) to 5.14 (44).

"Van Sloaney (Rory Sloane) and me down, everyone would be talking about this week, "Walker said.

"If you put things like that in the second half, everyone must be on the table."

The Crows will give a fair assessment on Monday afternoon, in which they will thoroughly dissect the game.

"We'll have to sit and watch that, because if we don't, we won't learn from it," he said.

"It will be a huge learning curve for us and there must be honest conversations between players because we were out there. The 22 who played must have a real, good view of what went wrong.

"We will do things that will help us when we get back to that situation."

PYKE APOLOGY: Coach ashamed by Showdown result

Walker was the only multiple goal kicker from Crows with two majors, but admitted that his own form was not where he wanted it to be.

"I would like to play better," he said.

"I think there are many guys who want to put their hands on to play better.

"I think I should stay in the game more, play with a little more presence and a little more impact on the game.

"There are a few areas where I need to improve – my workrate must remain at a high level and ask others what is needed."

The Crows are going to the Gold Coast on Wednesday to prepare for the Saturday evening clash with the low Suns.

Walker said the decision to travel to Queensland early was made two months ago.

"It's a great opportunity for the group to get away and train in their environment," he said.
