After spending virtually all of season 2014 on the sidelines following foot surgery, Matthew Kreuzer is looking forward to making his long-awaited return to Carlton’s line-up.
The big man had been looking fitter than ever after a solid pre-season, before suffering another minor setback with his foot. However Blues fans can breathe a sigh of relief as he’s expected to return to playing early in the season.
The former No. 1 draft pick is likely to spend more time in the forward line this year.
Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No. 1 overall.
