R6, 2013, Carlton 18.13 (121) d Melbourne 8.12 (60) at the MCG

Game notes:ย These clubs met in a spiteful clash in round two, which should ensure the temperature gauge is at boiling point on Sunday with plenty of physical clashes. The previous encounter against Melbourne established a worrying trend for Carlton which has happened in subsequent meetings, hitting the front late in games before being overrun by teams with deeper midfields. Key forward Jesse Hogan, one of the key protagonists in round two, and Jeff Garlett look set to return for Melbourne, but its midfield has been ravaged by injury and the absence of co-captains Nathan Jones and Jack Viney, as well as Jack Watts and Christian Salem, will be difficult to cover. The clash between last year’s All Australian ruckman Max Gawn and heir apparent Matthew Kreuzer looms as so important while Patrick Cripps, Bryce Gibbs and Marc Murphy should take advantage of the depleted Melbourne midfield.

Hutta’s Tip: Carlton by 12 points.

  3. Greenwood out meant I had to field Parsons unless I traded him to Gawn and I somehow managed to pick the option that gets less points. Yes obviously a lot of the game to go but it isnt looking good for gawn.

    1. I traded him in as well. Looks like he will not score as well as SPP, who I traded out for him.

      With him and Gary I could be sad next week.

      No knee damage at least.

  5. It would appear that Melbourne is aware that Cripps loves playing against them, and that their strategy for dealing with him is to injure him. First, the break his jaw, and now they break his… whatever that was.

    1. Was purely accidental. Cripps just unlucky to have copped a kick to the leg whilst trying to smother the ball..

      1. I know. I’m certainly not suggesting there was any malice in it this time. But that’s twice in a row that Cripps has been injured playing against Melbourne.
