AFL squad selection: Six additions into squad

CARLTON’S extended squad of 26 has six new faces in it from last weekend.

Ahead of Sunday’s clash with Brisbane at the Gabba, it was already confirmed that the Blues would be without Matthew Kennedy (concussion/jaw) and Nic Newman (knee). Lachie Plowman has been omitted.

Coming into the extended squad are Paddy Dow, Lachie Fogarty, Brodie Kemp, Caleb Marchbank, Jack Martin and Jack Newnes, with their spot in the team to be confirmed tomorrow evening at 5pm when the squad is reduced to the 22.

Corey Durdin has been named in the extended squad, after his shoulder progressed well since earlier in the week. He is now available to train tomorrow and will be a test to play on Sunday based on how he gets through the session.

Should either of Marchbank or Newnes be selected, the pair will celebrate respective milestones: Marchbank’s 50th career game, or Newnes’ 50th in Navy Blue.

There will be one guaranteed milestone for the Blues on the weekend, with Adam Saad scheduled to play his 150th career game. After starting his career on the Gold Coast before moving to Essendon, it will be a big day for the rebounding Blue this weekend in a season already littered with personal highlights.

This week will also mark Carlton’s annual Back Our ‘Baggers game, which is partnered by Hyundai and will also be reflected on the guernseys of the Brisbane Lions this week. For the 26 people who have been assigned a guernsey this weekend, you can see your name below!

Sunday’s game begins at 3:20pm from the Gabba.
