UPDATED: The Northern Blues have reduced their squad down to 27 ahead of tomorrow’s home game with Coburg.
In line with Carlton’s team announcement, Sam Kerridge, Matthew Kreuzer, Matthew Lobbe and Jack Silvagni have come out of yesterday’s VFL squad.
The four emergencies Nick Graham, Patrick Kerr, Harrison Macreadie and Aaron Mullett have all been named in the updated side.
Tom Wilson is named to return from the injury which kept him out of last weekend’s loss to Casey. Also back in the line-up are returning Carlton rookies Jesse Glass-McCasker and Cillian McDaid from injury layoffs, as well as Cameron O’Shea (AFL omission).
Ethan Penrith is the only confirmed out of the squad due to injury.
The official Bertocchi 23 will be announced tomorrow, an hour and a half prior to the game.
It was announced earlier in the week that this Saturday’s game against Coburg will be the second VFL game to trial potential new AFL rules.
IN: Jesse Glass-McCasker, Nick Graham, Cillian McDaid, Cameron O’Shea, Tom Wilson
