We're only four rounds in, but we can't help but feel some heat for these blokes. Zero Hanger discusses which three coaches are sweating early on.


1. Brendon Bolton

The only winless team left after round four, an exclusive club no one wants to be a part of. Bolton's men have shown dramatic improvement in their first three games of the season before heading to Gold Coast where the Blues' first win looked likely. Enter Jack Bowes who snapped a goal over his right shoulder and broke the hearts of the Carlton faithful as well as the playing group.

It's Bolton's fourth year at the helm of the Blues, and after finishing 14th, 16th and 18th in his last three seasons, many expected the boys in navy blue to make their way up the ladder in 2019. A tough draw to start the season hasn't helped the playing group's confidence, but four points must come soon or Mark Lo Giudice and his board members may start to question where the club is at.
