Matthew Kreuzer needs surgery, set to miss most of season 2020
Matthew Kreuzer can’t take a trick.
The injury-plagued Carlton ruckman will spend as much as four months on the sidelines after he fractured his fifth metatarsal in the first quarter of Thursday night’s season opener against Richmond.
He needs surgery.
The veteran ruckman came from the ground in the first quarter and played no further part after landing heavily on his left foot.
