Game Review

Defence is the key to unlocking Harry
Carlton key forward Harry McKay had laid more than two tackles in a game only once this season before round 14. For the past three weeks, he has laid a total of 12 and his form in front of goal is following. In the first half against Fremantle at Optus Stadium on Sunday, McKay had a team-high three tackles inside 50 as his defensive pressure contributed to a 25-point lead. The resulting confidence was obvious, with the Coleman medallist converting set shots with drop punts and presenting at the ball with purpose, proving a handful for opponent Alex Pearce and finishing the day with three goals. If the Blues are going to make a late charge at finals, McKay's defensive efforts – and his goals – will be important. – Nathan Schmook
