Sunday Territorian - - SPORT - CHRIS CA­VANAGH

CARL­TON ruck­man Matthew Kreuzer says he is fight­ing fit, con­fi­dent heartre­lated is­sues which led to him miss­ing the fi­nal six rounds of the sea­son are now be­hind him.

Kreuzer suf­fered an el­e­vated heart rate dur­ing the Blues’ Round 17 match against St Kilda.

He had an­other scare as he pre­pared to re­turn to the field against Fre­man­tle four weeks later.

“The body is good now,” Kreuzer told the club’s web­site.

“All of those is­sues are fixed — I got some good work in dur­ing the off-sea­son.

“Train­ing has also been re­ally good.

“I haven’t missed any­thing yet.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting through to Christ­mas and then re­ally get­ting go­ing af­ter that.”

Kreuzer, 29, said he had been en­joy­ing work­ing with new ruck coach Hamish McIn­tosh, who had taught him some “new tricks” and had been im­pressed by the de­vel­op­ment of young ruck Tom De Kon­ing who had “put on a bit of size” over the off-sea­son.
