Experience and confidence have been key to turning around the Blues this year after a disappointing two-win season in 2018, according to Ed Curnow, who is confident the wins will keep coming for his side.
“We’re not trying to sell belief any more. The guys genuinely think we can win and we should be winning, and we’ve been in a lot of close games this year,” said Curnow, who will play his 150th game this weekend when the Blues take on struggling North Melbourne.
The Curnow family was out in force at Ikon Park on Tuesday morning, including injured Blues forward Charlie, whom older brother Ed hoped would be able to play in the milestone game.
“He’s gotta play, doesn’t he? I hope so anyway, we’ll see how he goes at training,” Curnow said of his younger brother, who has missed the last two games after suffering a knee injury early in the season.
