CARLTON has named at least three forced changes to its Round 9 line-up.

After the news earlier in the week that Jack Martin and Harry McKay would miss with injury, Lewis Young is also unavailable after entering AFL Health and Safety Protocols. 

George Hewett could return to the line-up, having been named on the eight-person interchange which will be reduced at 5pm tomorrow evening.

It was announced on Wednesday night that Hewett had trained fully earlier that day, with another session to come on Friday.

There are five more potential inclusions to Carlton’s team pending tomorrow night's team selection: Paddy Dow, Lachie Fogarty, Brodie Kemp, potential debutant Jesse Motlop and Lachie Plowman.

After re-signing with the Blues for a further three years earlier this week, Matthew Kennedy will notch his 50th game for the football club: coincidentally, it comes against GWS — his former club.
