SUMMARY
After their loss to Richmond in the season-opener, the Blues will be determined to bounce back hard as they return to Etihad Stadium for the first time this season. Midfielder Patrick Cripps and athletic forward Charlie Curnow were in sublime form against the Tigers and ruckman Matthew Kreuzer helped set up the early lead before being restricted by injury late in the game. The Suns are on the road again after giving Stuart Dew the perfect start to his coaching tenure in tough conditions at Cazalys Stadium last Saturday. Already they appear to have a harder edge, finishing with more disposals, clearances, marks and inside 50s than the Kangaroos. Key Carlton defender Liam Jones subdued Suns co-captain Tom Lynch when they met in round 13 last season and the pair are likely to lock horns again on Saturday.

Thommo’s Tip: Carlton by 12 points.

        1. Anyone know if he’ll miss more than this week?
          I could do a last minute trade but if he’s back next week, I don’t want to do it.

  4. Were Lobbe and Philips both unavailable at this late notice, or does Bolton just not trust them? Polson for Kreuzer is hardly a like-for-like.

    1. Both apparently not match fit after recovering from injuries. They weren’t named on the extended bench, I expect they wouldn’t have consider Kreuzer if either of them were fit to play

  5. How good is it to see the big key forwards back and dominating games. Buddy last week, Browny last night and now Lynch.

    1. The golden number used to be 120 but with the way Dusty, Danger and Titch score it’s probably 130 these days.

  6. Surely there’s a brother-brother rule in SC where i can pick which Curnow I get the points of each week.
