The final Northern Blues team is in for Round 18 VFL action.

The Blues have welcomed back David Cuningham to the fold, while Paddy Dow and Finbar O’Dwyer also come into the side from a VFL standpoint.

There’ll be a plethora of young Carlton talent in the midfield mix, with Cuningham and Dow likely to join Tom De Koning and Liam Stocker at the centre bounce.

Meanwhile, Sam Fisher will wear the No.0 guernsey in line with AFL Victoria’s Towards Zero round – in partnership with the Transport Accident Commission.

All across the country, representatives from local and state-league clubs will swap their normal playing number for the No.0 guernsey.

Head of AFL Victoria Rick Bell told the VFL website that the competition was proud to partner with the TAC to support an important initiative.

“Knowing the whole Victorian football community will be supporting the same message on the same day is very powerful and I am extremely proud of the football community for getting on board,” Mr. Bell said.

“Football clubs are such an important part of local communities and having them promote the message that zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads is possible will undoubtedly reach a substantial amount of people.”

The game will be broadcast live on Channel 7 in Victoria.
