Carlton vs. Richmond
Carlton and Richmond resume their Thursday night hostilities in Round 1 of the 2022 AFL season when they go head to head at the MCG on Thursday night.
The Blues will unveil new players, positional changes and a new game plan concocted under the eye of new coach Michael Voss.
The signs for Carlton have been positive in the pre-season with wins against St Kilda and reigning premier Melbourne, but the Richmond hoodoo looms large.
Damien Hardwick has not lost to any Carlton squad since that famous 2013 elimination final, which the Blues won.
Since then, it has been 11 consecutive victories and Dustin Martin has been pivotal figure in all of those wins.
The Tigers have some injury concerns with Kane Lambert, Nick Vlastuin and Kamdyn McIntosh all missing the game,
Injury clouds hang over the fitness of Dylan Grimes, Jack Graham and Dion Prestia despite all three being named in the team.
Sam Walsh will also miss out on the clash, but the Blues seem to have covered him omission reasonably well with Matt Kennedy, Adam Cerra and George Hewett showing plenty.
Expect this be a close game, but the Tigers should prevail given how well they matched up on the Blues in recent times.
