FULL TIME 

Carlton has held firm for a famous one-point win.

The Giants led with two minutes remaining, but late behinds to Levi Casboult and Zac Fisher gave the Blues the win.

Liam Jones returned to the AFL with a commanding performance in defence.

“You have to take your hat off to Jones today,” said Richo.

“He had two early goals kicked on him, but after than he blanketed Patton.”

HALF TIME

Carlton leads by eight points at the main break.

Richo and Lingy said the stats would indicate that GWS has been dominant in the middle, but they aren’t getting reward for it where it matters.

=====

It’s second v second-last as the Giants and Blues clash at the Docklands.

But Carlton’s been impressive against strong opposition already this year, and can play with the freedom of minimal expectation.

And, perhaps, the four ex-Giants lining up in navy blue on Sunday will have some inside information that could come in handy.
