Kreuzer named in Team of the Week

Highlights | Carlton vs Richmond Watch the highlights from the Round 14 clash between Carlton and Richmond.

Another complete performance from Carlton big man Matthew Kreuzer has landed the 28-year-old in AFL Media’s ‘Team of the Week’. 

As a regular feature in the best 22, the 28-year-old earned his place in the Round 14 side after he dominated in the ruck during the Blues’ 26-point loss to Richmond on Sunday.

With 37 hitouts (15 to advantage), 14 disposals and two goals, Kreuzer was selected in the line-up as a follower, alongside Bulldogs midfielder Marcus Bontempelli and Swans captain Josh Kennedy.

As a shining light for the navy blue squad on Sunday, Kreuzer made an impression on senior coaches Brendon Bolton and Damien Hardwick, with the tall awarded five votes for the 2017 AFLCA Champion Player of the Year Award. Teammate Patrick Cripps also received three votes from the coaches after he recorded 27 disposals (17 contested) 10 clearances, eight tackles and one goal against the Tigers.

The Blues will look for another strong performance from the experienced ruckman when they take on Adelaide at the MCG on Saturday from 2:10pm.
