Let's hope he has a break out year this year.

Personally, I think Jack will turn it up a notch or two this year to have one up on his brother, nothing like a bit of sibling rivalry.

Now all we need is McKay's brother to cross over for peanuts so we have 3 sets on our list.

Midfield continues to grow

IF last night’s JLT Community Series opener is anything to go by, Carlton has a clear focus on spreading the midfield load in 2019.

While Patrick Cripps once again played a starring role at the coalface, it was the work of his younger teammates which had Blues fans excited about what could come this year and beyond.

Zac Fisher was one of those players who shone at Ikon Park, recording 26 disposals and four tackles in the nine-point win.

Speaking to media at Carlton’s Community Camp today, Fisher said there had been a big focus on establishing some strength in numbers, starting with last night’s “exciting” win.

“It’s always good to win the first one and I thought it was a good, consistent performance from all,” Fisher said.

“As a midfield group, we took a lot of pressure off ‘Crippa’, who still had a good game himself.

“The likes of Walsh, Dow, ‘Samo’, Cuningham just to say a few all took the load off of him. They were good signs.”

The Blues added to its midfield depth over the off-season with some key acquisitions, and Will Setterfield and Sam Walsh last night showed their immediate and future potential.

The zippy midfielder said the way to get the best out of co-captain Cripps was through a deep pool of midfielders making an impact, as shown in bursts last night.


After the other night I’ve seen more than a few neutrals talk with some fear about the possibilities of a future Cripps, Walsh, Setterfield, Fisher, SPS, Dow, Kennedy, LOB midfield.

The potential is massive, it’s about application now.

Big bodied mids who can hold their own against any opposing group of mids: Cripps, Setterfield, Silvagni, Dow, and Kennedy.
In fact one big bodied mi called Cripps owns them.

Add some speed and class by their side in SPS, Fisher, Cuningham.

Wingmen who can run at pace all day and link up: Walsh and OBrien.

Add some old heads: Murphy Curnow and the ruck rover Kreuzer (another huge midfield body).

Formidable...and most important, there's pressure on spots in the team with Gibbons and Stocker also eyeing a spot.

We are going places this year, barring injury.
