Carlton captain Marc Murphy has detailed the Blues’ celebrations on Saturday night, after the club won just their second game of 2018.
The Blues booted seven third quarter goals to come from behind and defeat the Suns by 35 points, for just their second victory of the campaign.
Following Gold Coast’s huge win over Sydney at the SCG last weekend, the Blues’ victory over the Suns was an impressive one, and one Murphy revealed they certainly did celebrate.
“We did (celebrate). I think these days, it can be a real grind if you’re not enjoying what you’re doing,” Murphy told the AFL Nation pre-game show on Sunday.
“I think last night we played a good brand of footy against a side who’s been going pretty well of late, we did enjoy each other’s company after the game which is why you play footy, to share in that with your teammates and enjoy yourselves after the game.
“It was good that we all got together with the coaches and family members and had a few drinks together which was good.
“We key it low key and stayed at the hotel and kept each other’s company, which is what footy is about.”
The win keeps the wooden spoon race alive, although the Blues are definitely still in the box seat to claim the unwanted prize, as they sit two wins off the Suns.
The Blues face GWS, Fremantle, Western Bulldogs and Adelaide over the final four weeks of the season.
