The Blues are in trouble

The Suns were always going to bring their best to Metricon Stadium on Sunday afternoon, so it just boiled down to how the Blues were going to show up. When it looked as though Brendon Bolton’s men were going to run away with their first victory of the year, enter Jack Bowes. With 15 seconds to go in the last quarter, Bowes was able to scoop up a rogue ball and snap it over three Blues defenders, dribbling through a goal, putting the Suns two-points up.

Bolton was left with a sour look on his face as the Blues tried to surge the ball forward for one last shot at taking home four points. It wasn’t to be as it was devastation for Carlton and jubilation for Stuart Dew’s men. Sitting at 0-4, the Blues now come up against a revitalized Bulldogs outfit who will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing fortnight. Bolton will be starting to sweat on his role within the club.
