Game Chat – Melbourne vs Carlton

Written by Huttabito on April 2 2017

Venue: MCG 3:20pm AEST

Lastย Time They Met: R22, 2016, Carlton 11.12 (78) d Melbourne 7.16 (58) at the MCG

Game Notes: The challenge for Melbourne, and the Demons know it, is to produce the type of effort and intensity every week that was displayed against St Kilda. Melbourne has a wonderful opportunity to make it two wins from two starts against Carlton on Sunday, with coach Simon Goodwin already demanding the team rises to a new standard. The Demons’ midfield is already firing, led by Max Gawn, who has resumed his All Australian-type form, with young gun Clayton Oliver and experienced heads Jordan Lewis and Nathan Jones also solid contributors. The Blues were gallant in last Thursday’s loss to Richmond, but remain a developing side, and coach Brendon Bolton will continue to take a measured approach through 2017. Melbourne has not defeated the Blues since 2014, so after ending its long-running hoodoo against the Saints, it will be looking to right the wrongs again in its first home game at the MCG for the season.

Huttabito’s Tip:ย Melbourne by 30 (1-1)

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. Boy, with 3 clangers, 1 tackle and 2 handballs (at 50%DE), Hannan’s lucky to be on nil SC points!

  4. Already got him, one thing I’ve got right thus far! Surprised Docherty got as high as …. wait are these scores pre scaled? I’ve got him as well, knowing my luck they’ll penalise him 50 points for that late free at the end of the game.
