Final teams: Experienced Blues return

Team Selection | Round 12 Jacqueline Guldon brings you all the team selection news ahead of our Round 12 clash with Brisbane, presented by Borg's Pastries.

CALLING on experience.

In David Teague’s first game as caretaker coach, Carlton has welcomed back some familiar faces for Saturday’s home clash with Brisbane.

Among four changes to the line-up, veteran defenders Kade Simpson and Dale Thomas have been named to return to the AFL line-up.

Mitch McGovern, who missed last week’s game against Essendon with a minor ankle injury, will also line-up against the Lions on Saturday.

The key forward will make a handy addition as the Blues endeavour to ramp up their potency in attack. 

 

Young speedster Lochie O’Brien rounds out the inclusions for Round 12.

While the Blues will welcome back some key names, youngster Liam Stocker will miss the weekend’s clash through foot injury.

Darcy Lang has also been sidelined for Saturday after sustaining a hip injury in last week’s hitout against the Bombers.

Alex Fasolo and Matthew Kennedy have been omitted. 

The Round 12 clash with the Lions kicks off at 1:45pm at Marvel Stadium this Saturday.

In: Kade Simpson, Dale Thomas, Mitch McGovern, Lochie O’Brien 

Out: Darcy Lang (hip), Liam Stocker (foot), Matthew Kennedy (omitted), Alex Fasolo (omitted)
