CARLTON has made one change for the Friday night blockbuster with Geelong.

On the back of the win against Essendon before last week’s bye, the Blues will kick off Round 15 with the ninth annual AFL Carlton Respects Game in front of another capacity crowd.

The Blues have welcomed back Orazio Fantasia to the fold, returning after missing the win over the Bombers with an AC joint injury.


He comes into the side in place of Jack Carroll, who has been omitted.

It once again represents a settled line-up for the Blues, who have made zero, one and one change over the last three games.

Fantasia joins Lachie Cowan, Corey Durdin (who was sub against the Bombers), Elijah Hollands and Matthew Kennedy on the interchange, with one to be named sub an hour before the bounce. 

AFL Senior Coach Michael Voss confirmed David Cuningham and Marc Pittonet would return from injury via the Carlton Reserves on Saturday. Pittonet has been named an emergency for the AFL game alongside Caleb Marchbank and Jesse Motlop.
