Carlton’s Levi Casboult won’t be available for selection this weekend, after he was handed a one-match ban for a sling tackle in the VFL on Saturday.

Casboult actually received a free kick for holding the ball for the tackle, although he has been handed a one-match sanction for careless conduct with medium impact to the head.

With Carlton’s AFL and VFL teams both set to miss out on playing finals, Casboult will sit on the sidelines for the final round of matches this season.

Casboult played just 10 games for the Blues in the seniors, and struggled with both injury issues and form slumps throughout the season.

The key forward kicked 12 goals, and has since been replaced by young forwards Charlie Curnow and Harry McKay as the focal points in the forward line.
