Listen: ‘Everyone will be looked at’: Is big change coming at Essendon?

It’s not just whether you lose, but how you lose.

This week on the Real Footy podcast, Michael Gleeson, Jake Niall and Caroline Wilson discuss the Bombers’ worst defeat of the season. Essendon were coming off a good win against Hawthorn, but weren’t even competitive against the Swans.

The Bombers wanted to play a defensive system in the style of Richmond, to hold opposition teams up and be hard to play against. That’s not how they’re playing this season at all. Should the heat be on the coaching or is it too early into his tenure for scrutiny on Ben Rutten? And will we be seeing big changes in the footy department?

Salt in the Dons’ wound on Saturday night was Luke Parker’s apparent taunt of Dylan Shiel. Club great Matthew Lloyd said the Bombers should have stood up for their teammate to make a point. But should the Swans be disappointed with Parker’s behaviour?

Medical subs named

Neither side has made a late change with Brodie Kemp (Carlton) and Braeden Campbell (Sydney) the medical subs.

Possible tram delays on Spencer St

Our intern reporter Meghan Dansie noticed police had blocked off a good chunk of Spencer St.

Dansie reports that a window has been smashed in one of the top floors of the high rise on the corner on Spencer and Bourke, and there’s a risk of it falling and injuring people with multiple tram routes which could delay those trying to get to Marvel Stadium tonight.

Yarra Trams has tweeted that services a returning to normal but there could still be some delays as normal tram frequency returns.

Swans to wear their Marn Grook guernsey

The Swans will wear their Marn Grook guernsey tonight.

Below is an explanation from the club on its jumper:


The Sydney Swans will wear our new Marn Grook guernsey for the first time this week.

Designed by GO Foundation scholar Lua Pellegrini the guernsey, titled Duguwaybul Yindyamangidyal which means Altogether Respectfully, represents the 19 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players who have run out in the red and white.

Blues celebrate Sir Doug Nicholls Round

It’s the start of Sir Doug Nicholls Round in the AFL so prepare for some outstanding Indigenous guernseys and some much-needed recognition of Indigenous Australians and their impact on the AFL.

The Blues and Swans will exchange gifts and the Blues put out some information today on their guernsey and the plans for the evening.

Sir Doug Nicholls Round
Carlton has the honour of opening the 2022 Sir Doug Nicholls Round this evening and the players will be wearing the club’s Indigenous guernsey designed by Shanai Kellett. Kellett has a special link to Indigenous Round being the great granddaughter of Sir Doug Nicholls and she wanted the design to feature as many Indigenous stories from the club as possible. The guernsey is a reflection of reconciliation between the Carlton Football Club and its Indigenous players.

Gift exchange
The club’s gift comprises of a coolamon which is a multi-purpose dish used by Indigenous people to carry water, fruits, nuts and other types of bush tucker, topped with two boab nuts. The boab nuts are carved from the Kimberley region which spreads from Timber Creek in the Northern Territory to Broome in Western Australia. The boab nuts have been supplied by the Artlandish Aboriginal Art Gallery and the coolamon artist is Ricky Baldwin who is a Gunai Kurnai man from Gippsland.

Good evening

G’day everyone. It’s Roy Ward here and I’ll be tapping the keys on our live blog for tonight’s AFL clash between Carlton and Sydney at Marvel Stadium.

It should be an entertaining contest between two sides who have played some attacking footy this season.

We will have the major moments and post-game reactions and please feel free to leave a comment on the blog at any time.

First bounce is at 7.50pm AEST. Enjoy the evening to come.
