Crows seamless post-Lever move: Jacobs

Adelaide has made a "seamless" transition from Jake Lever's departure from the AFL club, ruckman Sam Jacobs says.

The Crows play Melbourne's prized signing Lever on Sunday for the first time since his acrimonious departure from Adelaide.

Jacobs says Tom Doedee's emergence has quickly covered the loss in defence of Lever, who exited after last year's losing grand final performance.
