Carlton Blues

Carlton BluesThe Carlton Blues are one of the most successful clubs in the history of the AFL, having won the equal-most VFL/AFL premierships, 16, tied with bitter rivals Essendon. The team’s last premiership however came in 1995, and they have not been sighted at the top of the competition since the new millenium.

Looking to continue their slow rise up the ladder in 2017, Carlton got off to a reasonable start before injuries to key players saw them struggle in the season’s second half. The Blues actually won one fewer game than they did in 2016, while also slipping from 14th to 16th.

With veteran midfielder Bryce Gibbs off to Adelaide and All-Australian defender Sam Docherty set to miss the season with an ACL injury, Carlton are widely tipped for a bottom four finish in 2018.
