Carlton are making “significant” changes to its game plan for its first year under new coach Brendon Bolton.
Speaking to SEN radio on Monday morning, Carlton’s Bryce Gibbs said that the club’s game plan will look vastly different in season 2016, as the players start from scratch in a new era, with the Blues making a total of 15 changes to its playing roster in the off-season.
“We’re doing a lot of things that we’ve never done before, we’ve stripped it right back and started again,” Gibbs said.
“Each coach has brought their part that they’ve learnt along the way. What I’ve been really impressed with is how well they’re teaching the group. It’s been really refreshing.
“We’ll probably look to do things more collectively, when in the past we’ve relied on a few too many to get the job done. It’s a lot more team-orientated this year.
“We’ve worked hard on the defensive side of things, but not forgetting that when we’re up and going we’ve got some of the best attacking players in the competition.
“We’re definitely going to encourage bringing a bit of flair back to the group.”
