    Carlton got their season back on track last week and will be looking to build even more confidence against the young GWS Giants. We’ll have live scores from 1.10pm AEST.

    The two coaches of these teams have clashed during the week over the Blues’ selection tactics.

    Giants coach Kevin Sheedy warned the Blues not to take his side lightly as the suggestion Carlton would rest a number of their stars gained momentum.

    When the team sheets came out, Chris Judd, Matthew Kreuzer and Jarrad Waite were all left out.

    Carlton coach Brett Ratten defended the omissions, saying the best available team was selected.

    On the field, the two teams appear destined to end the year at different ends of the ladder, so it will be tough for the Giants to get close.

    But GWS have performed well the past two weeks, holding the Western Bulldogs to a goalless first quarter and keeping Adelaide honest a week earlier.

    Jeremy Cameron has been the big talking point out of the kids following his five-goal haul last week. Tomas Bugg has also been in magnificent form.

    The Giants have joined the Blues in making a raft of changes: Rhys Palmer, Dean Brogan, Tim Mohr, Setanta O’hAilpin are possible inclusions, while Josh Bruce, Shaun Edwards, Jacob Townsend, Adam Treloar and Adam Tomlinson are out.

    Carlton are coming off a hard-fought eight-point win over Fremantle last Friday.

    Freo played a defensive game but the Blues were up to the challenge and would’ve won by more if it weren’t for a late rally. Chris Judd was well held, but Kade Simpson, Marc Murphy and Mitch Robinson were all prominent.

      Carlton will come away with a soft win, but there should be plenty made about the lack of effort from the Blues in the first 2.5 quarters. They swanned around thinking it would be easy, but were shown up by a side that actually wanted the ball and wanted to prove something.

        Yeah, Once GWS ran out of talls, and felt the effect of playing with a smaller bench, Carlton played some excellent footy.

        But when the game was there to be won, Carlton went missing.

      Really good defense by Homkbsch and Mohr

      Its been a brave effort by GWS, but they’ve run out of height, and didnt have enough strength to start with.

      Giles goes off from the blood rule, and Davis is overmatched in the ruck. Quick hithour, fast kick and Thornton marks low in the hot spot. Goal to Carlton. Lead is now 25 points

      GWS are running out of bodies and energy, Carlton are running out of intent

      Setanta appears to have hurt his knee

      Setanta’s hurt – looks like an ankle.

      GWS are running out of bodies

        who else is off the field? Bloody Blues should be killing this one.
        Good coverage by the way

      Great vision from Scully to find Davis. Goal GWS

    • 2:50pm
      Ian Whitchurch said | 2:50pm | ! Report

      Almost a goal of the year dancing along the boundary line by Betts, but couldnt quite thread the kick. 25 points.

      Next goal is important

    • 2:46pm

      Goal to Robinson – Carlton are winning some more contested ball, and using it better, 22 points
