Suns forward Izak Rankine tipped to join Crows

SEN SA host Kym Dillon firmly believes Gold Coast forward Izak Rankine will be an Adelaide Crows player in 2023.

It follows a Channel 7 Adelaide report that claims the Crows “would move heaven and earth” to get Rankine in a deal that “would center around Adelaide’s first-round pick”.

The South Australian comes out of contract at the end of the season and is yet to re-sign with the Suns.

Gold Coast coach Stuart Dew recently told reporters he was confident Rankine will re-commit to the Sun.

Dillon understands the Crows are prepared to pay significant money to lure Rankine to West Lakes.

Dillon and Michelangelo Rucci, co-hosts of SEN SA’s The Run Homediscussed Rankine’s future beyond 2022.

Dillon: “I’m 95 per cent sure this is going to happen.

“The deal is not done until it’s done – but Izak Rankine will be at the Crows next year.”

Rucci: “At what does it cost? Because I’m hearing big numbers.”

Dillon: “What I’m understanding is they’ll be prepared to pay it.”

Rucci: “$800,000 a year?”

Dillon: “That’s what I believe strongly is going to happen. They’re not into Josh Dunkley.

“After a number of phone calls yesterday and talking to different people, I firmly believe Izak Rankine will be at Adelaide.”

Rankine, the No.3 pick in the 2018 draft, is having a career-best year having kicked 27 goals in 16 games.
