WALKING WOUNDED: News of Daniel Menzel’s season-ending knee injury just as he had commenced his return through the VFL were shattering for club and player. The 20-year-old will require another knee reconstruction but this time it is his left knee rather than the right he injured in the finals last season. Allen Christensen, who was returning from a calf injury, was concussed in the same VFL match and is unlikely to play while Travis Varcoe (foot), Jordan Murdoch (finger), Josh Cowan (Achilles) and Nathan Vardy
(hip) are long-term absentees. On the other hand, the Cats expect power forward Tom Hawkins (knee) and late withdrawals from last week in Corey Enright, Joel Corey and Steven Motlop to get up for the clash.
The Blues have the longest injury list in the AFL with star midfielder Marc Murphy (shoulder) another two months away. Key forward Jarrad Waite (back), Andrew Carrazzo (shoulder) and Heath Scotland (calf), who suffered the injury in the loss to Port Adelaide
last week, are all at least a fortnight away. Add to that Brett Thornton (gluteal strain), Jordan Russell (hamstring – one week), Levi Casboult (knee – four) and Simon White (knee – eight) and their list starts to resemble a casualty ward. The Blues should welcome back a few against the Cats though, with defenders Lachie Henderson (hip), Nick Duigan (calf) and ruckman Matthew Kreuzer (hamstring) in line to return.

Carlton have fallen into a real hole in the past few rounds with three losses in their past four, losing the spark that saw them tagged premiership favourites earlier in the season. Injuries have played a big part, with the midfield unable to cover the losses of Murphy and Carrazzo. Last week’s loss to Port was the low point of their season with the final losing margin a humbling 54 points and the Blues’ score of 45 their lowest score since Round 17, 2008 against Collingwood.
The Cats have certainly receded this season but they are still thereabouts in eighth spot and will solidify their position at 7-4 if they defeat the Blues. Back-to-back wins over the Bulldogs and Giants were far from convincing but with a few key players set to return in the next fortnight, the premiers may just be sliding under the radar nicely.
WHO’S HOT: Brock McLean – Few have stood up of late but crucial to the Blues’ ability to return to form will be the input of McLean. His opportunities have been few and far between since moving to the club but he needs to step up, particularly in the absence of Carrazzo. McLean picked up 33 touches against his old side, Melbourne, two weeks ago and 21 in the loss to Port, along with 11 tackles across the two games.
Harry Taylor – An unusual character in an unusual forward role –Taylor – booted six goals against the Giants last week and though his team-mates will tell him the opposition was sub-standard, the performance definitely shows the All-Australian defender’s versatility. Taylor kicked four goals in the second half after scores were level at the main break and proved coach Chris Scott’s unlikely experiment had plenty of validity.
