Fisher to make debut

Team Selection | Round 4 Emily Angwin brings you all the team selection news ahead of our Round 4 clash against Gold Coast.

The Blues will make way for their fifth AFL debutant of the season on Saturday night, with Zac Fisher being named in the Blues’ side for the clash against the Gold Coast Suns. 

Fisher, who was recruited at Pick 27 in the National Draft, will pull on the navy blue guernsey for the first time at Etihad Stadium and earned his call-up after an impressive display for the Northern Blues against Port Melbourne on the weekend.

Standing at 175cm, the Perth Demons recruit's height has never stopped him racking up possessions and is renowned for going in hard at every contest.

Both Fisher and Charlie Curnow will come into the side for Rhys Palmer and Sam Kerridge who have both been omitted from the side.

The Blues will have seven teenagers play on Saturday night when they face an in-form Gold Coast Suns at Etihad Stadium from 7:25pm.
