UPDATES

The season of George Hewett (AF $766k SC $536k D/M) may be over due to his ongoing back issue which Carlton haven’t been able to pinpoint. Blues coach Michael Voss said: “Potentially (season over). Hopefully that’s not the case. We’ve got to wait to see if the interventions we’ve put in place have worked. We’re hoping today or early next week we’ll have a clear indicator.”

Tim Taranto (AF $769k SC $473k M/F) has been ruled out for GWS due to a delayed onset concussion. The GWS update said: “After being medically cleared earlier in the week, Taranto reported symptoms on Friday that may be related to a delayed concussion.”

Lachie Ash (AF $544k SC $319k D/M) comes into the GWS line-up for Taranto, which is a tag flag for in-form Dons midfielder Zach Merrett (AF $970k SC $655k MID).

Port coach Ken Hinkley explained the recall of Brynn Teakle (AF $192k SC $102k R/F). He said: “We were pretty keen to get Brynn in and give him a chance before the end of the season. The game he played was pretty exciting for 35 minutes. He’s recovered fully now so we didn’t have to rush him.”
