VOTE for ‘Crippa’!

The accolades from the weekend are coming thick and fast for the Carlton captain, whose outstanding individual goal has been nominated for the Coates Hire Goal of the Year.

As he led his time to a memorable come-from-behind win, Cripps’ four goals to go with his 38 disposals was arguably his most dominant performance.

 

The pick of the bunch came at the beginning of the fourth quarter, with Cripps’ mix of power and skill on full display.

The skipper left two Lions in his wake before converting from 40 on the run to the delight of the Carlton faithful.

Cripps is the third Carlton player to be receive a Goal of the Week nomination, after Mitch McGovern (Round 3) and David Cuningham (Round 6).
