9.10 (64)


For the first quarter last week, it looked as though not much had changed for the Demons. However after the first change, they turned it on and ran away with an impressive win. They seem to have talent across the ground, and when it clicks, they play a level of football that is up there with the best in the competition.

The Blues may like their chances in this one, they knocked off the Demons in their round 22 match-up last year. Eyes will be on Jacob Weitering, and where on the ground he plays. This comes after an impressive stint forward against the Tigers last week.

Simon Goodwin will be hoping that his side can dish up a four quarter effort this week. They should be too good in this one, but hopefully Carlton give their fans something to cheer about.
