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.
