Carlton to play the Giants at Manuka Oval

johnboy 21 February 2011 14

The Herald Sun has a story on the disappointment of Carlton that they’re going to have to come to Canberra to thrash the GWS giants:

The Blues drew the short straw of NAB Cup first round losers and will face Greater Western Sydney in a practice match in Canberra.

Clubs last week expressed concern at the inclusion of GWS in the pre-season circuit, with the Giants’ team of teenagers unlikely to offer the hard match practice AFL teams are after.

In their NAB Cup debut the Giants were thrashed 83-4 by Sydney before putting in a better showing against the Gold Coast, another team packed with youngsters.

Manuka Oval’s website advises that the game starts at 4pm.

Chris Judd just found the time to send me an SMS to let me know that Carlton will have a merchandise and membership tent outside the main gates at Manuka Oval tomorrow from 2:30pm.

All Blues fans should pay them a visit and sign up as a 2011 member if they haven’t already!

No, I mean if meteor hit. More scum would be wiped from the face off the earth.

We would need the meteor to hit at a Dog Raiders game for that to happen

I reckon they might get 6000 there.

5900 Carlton fans all in one place hey… wonder if a meteorite could just strike at the right place at the right time and make the world a happier place…

If it was Collingwood, there would be more lining up around the corner. Damn shame.

It will be great to watch teams other than the Swans or Bulldogs for a change

I’m sure GWS are disappointed too, I’m sure they would rather play a decent team.
