Carlton holds a one-point lead at the main break.

Driving rain has led to a scrappy game, with only seven goals kicked in the first half.


Carlton’s Head of Football Andrew McKay has responded to club legend Greg Williams’ dig at the Blues.

Williams, now a skills coach at Essendon, said he hopes the Bombers ‘kick their arse’ at the MCG today.

But McKay said Williams will always be a true Blue. 

‘I still see him as a Carlton man,’ he said.
