Fans boo Carlton following an altercation over an AFL “dog shot”.
After losing to the Brisbane Lions at Marvel Stadium on Friday night, Carlton’s chances of ming the AFL finals have been diminished, and they may be without backman Nic Newman for the following game. The Blues had a good first quarter, but they struggled after the bre in their defeat by the score of 15.10 (100) to 11.8 (74).
Five minutes into the third quarter, as he attempted to stop the dangerous Lions midfielder at a ball-up in Brisbane’s forward 50, Newman collected Brisbane’s Lachie Neale with an elbow to the jaw. Although Neale was unable to capitalise with a goal, Carlton’s anger with their inability to control the ball in the third quarter was evident. Additionally, they allowed five unanswered goals throughout the period. Even though they were behind by 40 points after three quarters, they maintained their composure.
In an attempt to mount a spectacular comeback, the Blues scored four goals in a row to open the fourth quarter. However, the Lions responded with steadying goals from Eric Hipwood and Harry Sharp to end the game. Neale, who won the 2020 Brownlow Medal, may have been fortunate that the strike on him was not particularly high-impact because he immediately got to his feet and took his shot. After the hit, tempers briefly rose, and one Brisbane player was overheard on the umpire’s microphone calling the strike a “dog shot.
After a hard head collision with Brisbane’s Harris Andrews earlier in the game as both players chased a loose ball on the wing, Carlton forward Harry McKay was forced to leave the field under the blood rule. Later, McKay reeled but was able to continue playing after having a laceration under his eye stitched up.
