Arriving at Ikon Park via the 2016 AFL Trade Period from Geelong, Smedts managed nine senior games for the Blues this season. The 25-year-old was picked up by the Cats with their first-round selection in 2010, going on to play 47 career games between both clubs.

Barassi back at the home of the Blues

Fast 5 | Matthew Kennedy Here are five things you may not know about new Blue Matthew Kennedy.

The great Ronald Dale Barassi has this week paid a sentimental journey back to the old Carlton ground.

With the 50th anniversary of the drought-breaking 1968 Grand Final victory over Essendon looming, Barassi, the two-time Carlton Premiership coach of ’68 and ’70, reacquainted himself with the place to which he sensationally defected from Melbourne back in late ’64.

Barassi took time out to pose by the locker carrying his name and that of the other eight men who have coached this club through a minimum 100 senior matches. He was particularly taken by the presence of Norman Clark’s name - Clark having represented Carlton as a player in the premiership hat-trick years of 1906, ’07 and ’08, and later as coach in the back-to-back grand final triumphs of 1914 and ’15.
