Carlton forward Jeff Garlett has cost himself a place in the senior side this weekend after he was involved in a late night CBD brawl in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Garlett was set for a recall from the VFL to play Gold Coast on Saturday, however coach Mick Malthouse ruled him out of the clash following the incident which occured at 5am.
Garlett, who was out celebrating his 25th birthday, was taken to hospital and required stitches to the head, with four men arrested.
Malthouse said Garlett had not shown enough commitment to the Blues.
“He was in the side on Monday morning and he’s not in the side,” Malthouse said.
“Jeff hasn’t got enough points up as far as I’m concerned to walk into the side.
“He’s a victim and it’s not as if he created that incident but we have a lot of young players here who have to know right from wrong.”
Malthouse said Carlton did not enforce a curfew, but added the players needed to show common sense.
“We don’t say don’t go around until 5am but we say be sensible.
“Jeff now understands that that’s totally unacceptable.”
