Blue boy brigade: Carlton team for Round 1, 2010

There are few surprises in the first of the two teams to be named today for the kickoff of the AFL season.

Carlton Blues Training Session

Carlton
FB: Bret Thornton, Michael Jamison, Aaron Joseph
HB: Paul Bower, Jarrad Waite, Jordan Russell
C: Ryan Houlihan, Marc Murphy, Heath Scotland
HF: Andrew Carrazzo, Lachie Henderson, Kade Simpson
FF: Setanta O’hAilpin, Matthew Kreuzer, Eddie Betts
Fol: Robert Warnock, Bryce Gibbs, Brock McLean
Int: Joe Anderson, Mitch Robinson, Andrew Walker, Chris Yarran
Emg: Shaun Grigg, Sam Jacobs, Kane Lucas

Differences from round 1 projection:
In: Anderson
Out: Richard Hadley

The lack of Lucas and Rohan Kerr is not surprising. Anderson, however, could be a bolter. Having only managed 12 games in the past three seasons, Anderson’s strengths as a half-back rebounder could feed into the retirement of Nick Stevens to mean he will play a lot more games this year. Priced at 44 in DT and 60 in SC – despite this underlining the quality of his disposal – means he will be more of a DT candidate if anything.
