Brownlow Medal favourite Cripps injured

Sydney have made three changes for their AFL clash with Gold Coast, while Carlton captain Patrick Cripps headlines the big-name omissions in round 15.

Carlton will be without inspirational captain Patrick Cripps in their AFL clash with Fremantle, while Sydney have backed Tom McCartin to fill the void left by Lance Franklin in a rejigged forward line.

Cripps headlines the big-name omissions in round 15, with the Blues expecting the Brownlow Medal favourite to miss one or two games because of a sprained foot.

The Swans have made three changes for Saturday's SCG match against Gold Coast, calling up McCartin, Ben Ronke and James Rowbottom in place of off-season recruits Dan Menzel and Ryan Clarke plus hamstring superstar Franklin.
