UPDATE: The Northern Blues have named the 26-man squad ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Casey Fields.
In accordance with Carlton’s team announcement, Northern has altered its Bertocchi squad to not include those who will feature for the AFL Blues on Sunday.
Out of Thursday’s VFL team announcement are Ciaran Byrne, Matthew Lobbe, Cameron O’Shea, Cameron Polson and Jack Silvagni.
Carlton’s Jarrod Garlett returns to the line-up after being a late exclusion last weekend due to injury. He is joined by inclusions Alex Federico and Brendan Myers, who are named on an extended bench.
Named as emergencies for Carlton, Levi Casboult, Nick Graham, Patrick Kerr and Sam Kerridge are all named in the VFL side.
The combination of Casboult, Kerr and Jesse Palmer worked well for the Blues last weekend, combining for 10 goals.
Harrison Macreadie has been named at centre-half-back as he continues his return from an injury layoff.
Saturday’s game at Casey Fields begins at 1pm.
IN: Alex Federico, Jarrod Garlett, Brendan Myers
