Carlton’s ‘Mr Fix-it’

IF ANDREJS Everitt was already a fully-fledged utility when he arrived at Carlton, he can now claim the title “Mr Fix-it”.
In previous stints with the Western Bulldogs and particularly the Sydney Swans, Everitt proved a versatile proposition in attack, defence and at times on a wing, and he has now proven effective in another role – run-with midfielder.
“I’ve never really tagged before this, so it’s another thing to tick off as something else I can do,'” Everitt told AFL.com.au after nullifying Adelaide star Rory Sloane to be a crucial factor in the Blues’ five-point win at the MCG on Sunday night.
Without chief stoppers Andrew Carrazzo and Ed Curnow, the Blues have asked Everitt to put the clamps on opposition playmakers, and he restricted Sloane to just 18 disposals – down on the Crow’s pre-match season average of 22.5 touches.
