CARLTON has loaded up the big names for its trip to Domain Stadium for tonight’s JLT Community Series clash against Fremantle.
Coming off a mildly disappointing 92-point loss to St Kilda last Saturday, the Blues Membership Department will be overjoyed to know that Marc Murphy, Bryce Gibbs, Kade Simpson, Matthew Kreuzer and Jack Silvagni will all be returning.
This was the cunning masterplan of Bolts all along, given they faced a six-day turnaround – and a cross-country flight – between pre-season games.
Also named in Carlton’s squad is key defender Alex Silvagni – cousin of Jack and the remainder of the famous Carlton clan – who was rookie listed by the Blues this year after 53 games in seven seasons for the Dockers.
Dylan Buckley (hip) and Charlie Curnow (shoulder) both won’t make the trip.
Fremantle might get its first look at Griffin Logue, the Swan Districts backman selected with the eighth selection overall at last year’s NAB AFL Draft.
The Dockers have also named new spearhead Shane Kersten despite suffering a rib injury during the last-gasp win over Collingwood at Mandurah last Saturday.
