Preview

It’s been an interesting week for the Melbourne Football Club, with Tom Bugg’s punch putting his side firmly in the media spotlight. They will look to get back on track against the Blues on Sunday.

Carlton have performed better than many expected, with their back-line and defensive setup being particularly impressive. Melbourne can at times be a very free flowing and high scoring side, thus this match-up should be interesting.

Watts, Tyson, Garlett, and Hogan are all a chance to return for the Demons and on the back of this they should claim the four points.

Tip: Demons by 15
