A game that was billed as the caretaker cup is no more after Carlton signed David Teague up to a three-year deal during the week.
After weeks of campaigning among fans and players, the popular caretaker coach can now look forward to coaching his first game as permanent boss of Carlton.
But on the flipside, St Kilda caretaker Brett Ratten still remains in limbo as the Saints continue their search for the next permanent coach of the club.
Ratten has done his chances of winning the job no harm, winning three of his four matches as caretaker after Alan Richardson’s exit.
It’s set to be an entertaining game at a sunny MCG so make sure you tune into 3AW Football from midday for all the colour and excitement as the Blues fans the Saints.
