HALF TIME

Carlton leads a scrappy game by 18 points.

Early rain has made things tough for both sides, but the Blues are handling the conditions better.

3AW analysts Jimmy Bartel and Leigh Matthews were impressed by young Blue Sam Petrevski-Seton.

‘He’s kicked two goals in a low-scoring game,’ Bartel said.

‘He’s been in all their scoring chains. When everyone’s fumbling around him, he’s got composure.’

‘For us it is all about winning the next game, and the next game, and getting to 12 or 13 wins,’ he said.
