Casboult back to bolster Blues

Jason Phelan

Carlton are hoping to stretch Fremantle's undermanned defence with Levi Casboult returning to form a three-pronged AFL attack.

The club's leading goalkicker of last season hasn't played since round seven when he suffered broken ribs in a loss to Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.

He will play alongside exciting young tall forwards Charlie Curnow and Pat Kerr in the same attack for the first time when the Blues host the Dockers at Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
