Danger on the horizon for Cats as Crows look to lure veteran star back home


Could Patrick Dangerfield be winging his way back to Adelaide?

The Crows are reportedly set to target the veteran star for 2024 to help mentor their young squad in the final years of his career, according to 7 News.

After spending the first eight years of his careers at the Crows, the 34-year-old midfielder has been an integral member of Geelong’s line-up since 2016, the year he won the Brownlow Medal, but only managed 18 matches last season as injuries started taking their toll.

The 2022 premiership winner, who has racked up 325 games and eight All-Australian team selections, is a restricted free agent at the end of this season so Adelaide could lure the Geelong skipper home without having to offer up a trade.

The Crows have reached out to Dangerield to see if he would entertain a return to the South Australian capital although the Cats are favourites to retain his services next year.

Dangerfield is currently sidelined after suffering a hamstring tear in the same spot where he suffered a similar injury in round two against Adelaide.

The star Cat returned in round six but couldn’t get through his second game back, going down during the third quarter of the Round 7 win over Carlton. He will be out for at least a month.
