Last time they met
Carlton 6.10.46 def by Fremantle 15.13.103
- One of our worst displays of effort for the year, we allowed Freo far too much space in the first half as they cruised to an 11 goal half time lead.
- Nat Fyfe was the standout with 30 possessions and 2 goals
- Lachie Neale had 35 possessions and 3 goals
What I'm excited about
- Young Harry getting another opportunity to grow and build into the most important pre-season in his career.
- Cripps and Fyfe having another mouth watering matchup
- The Carlton response after the GWS belting.
- Seeing what we have learned from the last time we played the Dockers.
- An away game is always an opportunity to unite the players and they will enjoy their first ever game at the newly established Optus stadium
What I'm nervous about
- Are our players now going through the motions?
- I don't think we have the mental capacity to win away at the moment.
- Walters didn't play in round 13, and he traditionally goes very well against Carlton
- The (potential) return of Nat Fyfe
IN - Matthew Kreuzer | Jacob Weitering | Jack Silvagni
OUT - Matthew Lobbe | Cam O'Shea | Nick Graham
Unfortunately for Graham, he has come back into the senior side and failed to fire. That should probably see his season done unless there is an injury.
O'Shea is in the same situation, just not at the standard required to play in this league.
Kreuzer should be well rested and ready to finish off the season.
