Game Summary:ย Carlton has been gallant in its past two losses to St Kilda and Fremantle, but coming back from a bruising Sunday twilight game in Perth played in slippery, wet conditions presents a formidable challenge for Brendon Bolton’s men. While the season-ending injury to veteran Sam Rowe leaves a significant hole, the Blues’ backline has been solid and they will need to be on their game on Sunday against the potent Kangaroos attack, including Ben Brown and former Blue Jarrad Waite. The Roos will be full of confidence, having won three of their past four and thrashing the Blues in their past two encounters. Rugged midfielder Ben Cunnington and ruckman Todd Goldstein were instrumental in North Melbourne’s win over Melbourne last Sunday and the battle in the engine room will be crucial again, with Blues Marc Murphy, Patrick Cripps and Matthew Kreuzer in excellent form.

Huttabito’s Tip:ย Kangaroos by 5

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we arenโ€™t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they havenโ€™t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Shaggi is smiling – now.
      Shaggi Jnr was going off his nut after quarter time calling for brad Scott’s instant sacking.
      Watched the whole game and not sure that I would be able to a North player in the votes. Maybe that’s a good sign.
      A few players went missing for large periods.
      Next week the battle for 9th vs Richmond….hope its a close one.

  2. North Melbourne is getting a LOT of dodgy free kicks today. They’re playing well, and I have no doubt that they would still be winning even without the assistance from the umpires, but it’s not helping Carlton’s cause.

      1. He is injury-prone, and there is the possible issue of Andrew Phillips, but he’s definitely worth looking at.
