Cripps adding strings to bow Carlton Media spoke to Patrick Cripps as the pre-season training camp continues on the Sunshine Coast.

CARLTON’S Christmas break has officially begun, with the Blues today putting the final touches on their Sunshine Coast training camp.

Hot and humid conditions once again greeted the Blues, who completed skills and match-simulation drills before a gruelling run at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex to finalise the seven-day camp.


Carlton will return to the track on January 11 before facing St Kilda at Ikon Park on February 28 in its first JLT Community Series match.
