Carlton duo “on the cusp” of inking contract extensions


Carlton is reportedly set to extend both Caleb Marchbank and David Cuningham’s time at the club.

AFL Media’s Riley Beveridge is reporting that the pair are set to receive one-year extensions at IKON Park and his colleague Cal Twomey confirmed that on SEN Breakfast.

“Riley Beveridge reporting on that Marchbank and Cunningham are also tracking towards new deals,” Twomey said.

“Marchbank is on the cusp of a one-year deal for 2023 and Cunningham has also been tabled a one-year extension.

“Both guys we haven’t seen too much of in recent years, particularly Marchbank, but looking likely to stay at the Blues.”

Marchbank played four games in 2022 after missing the entirety of the last two seasons with a mix of neck, calf and knee injuries.

The former no. 6 draft pick will become a free agent at the end of next season given it will be his eighth season at Carlton since moving from GWS.

Cuningham didn’t feature for the Blues this season after suffering an ACL injury in mid-2021 with calf issues hindering a return in 2022.

The midfielder has played 41 career games since making his debut in 2016.
