WHERE AND WHEN: GMHBA Stadium, Saturday May 26, 7.25pm
Just when you thought it couldn’t get tougher for Carlton, the Blues meet Geelong. On the rebound. In Geelong. And with the Cats’ biggest name vowing for redemption. Gary Ablett’s match last week was his least effective in his return to the Cats, but when you hear that he’s promised Chris Scott something special in his first game back at GMHBA Stadium in blue and white hoops, you stand up and take notice. The Cats were clinical in their performance against Greater Western Sydney at home in round seven after being made to look second-rate against Sydney the week prior, so last week’s insipid display against Essendon will have Carlton nervous. As the Blues travel down the highway for the first time since 1997, the memories of a 109-point loss to Melbourne six days prior will be ringing in the back of their minds. Brendon Bolton questioned his team’s effort against the Demons. If the players leave it at home, this could get ugly.
