Two of the three external review panelists – Graham Lowe and Geoff Walsh – were in at the club on Monday, while former Fremantle star Matthew Pavlich was helping via video chats, given the evolving COVID-19 situation in Western Australia.

As reported by The Age last week – the Blues are also interested in luring highly regarded Hawthorn assistant Chris Newman. 

Assistant coaches ask their clubs to provide them with clarity for the next season by August 1 each year.

Carlton’s assistant coaches have long been under pressure and one has already left, with long-time assistant John Barker resigning before the review began.

Meantime, Carlton confirmed on Monday that former captain Marc Murphy will be sidelined for at least two weeks with a calf strain.

With eight games remaining, Murphy requires four more games to reach 300 in what is widely expected to his last year on the list.

In match review news, Zac Williams has been banned for one game for engaging in rough conduct.
The Blues recruit pushed the head of Adelaide’s Ben Keays into the turf during Sunday’s third-quarter melee. It was assessed as intentional conduct, low impact and high contact.

A further nine fines were handed out across both teams from the heated encounter.
West Coast’s Liam Ryan was also offered a week for his bump on Western Bulldog Jason Johannisen on Sunday, which was graded as careless, medium impact and high.
