Robbie Warnock hopes to be in for
a big season in 2013 after participating in every pre-season session so far.
"To be out there and training, it's great because I've only done that probably one other pre-season, so hopefully it's a step in the right direction," Warnock said.
"Just being out there and getting the k's in the legs is really good. There's no substitute for the fitness (you get) out there, so the fact that I'm out there hopefully means that I'm a step ahead of where I have been last year and years before."

Carlton ruckman Matthew Kreuzer, Shaun Hampson and Robbie Warnock are capable of playing successfully together in the same side under new coach Mick Malthouse, new Blues midfield coach Rob Wiley says.
"I think the one good thing about those three players is that they're all athletic, they're mobile, and you only have to look at the way Mick selects sides (to know) that those three players can certainly play in the one side," Wiley said.

Up to five clubs are chasing Carlton ruckman Robert Warnock, but the tall is keen to stay with the Blues according to his manager Colin Young.

"[Giants list manager] Steve Silvagni said if he isn't signed by round 22, then let's talk.
"But if you know Robbie, he just wants to play good footy. We are just sitting back at the moment, but as soon as he starts playing footy again, we will have a chat to Carlton."

Ruckman Robert Warnock is in danger of missing Carlton's season opener against Richmond as he recovers from shoulder surgery.
He had both shoulders done, so his was the most major surgery that we had [in the off-season] and we're just mindful of that," Carlton football manager Andrew McKay McKay said.
"He's progressing well, but we don't want to push him. If he's not right we won't play him."

Carlton recruit Robert Warnock's may finally play a game for his new club after spending much of the year recovering from a foot stress fracture suffered during the pre-season.
"He's certainly in consideration. His game at the weekend was the best of the three," Blues football manager Steven Icke said.
"His GPS numbers have gone up, as has his game time. So he's getting back to a reasonable level of fitness and he gives us another big-man option."
Brett Ratten will continue to proceed with caution in regard to Robert Warnock' return, despite the Blues pushing for a top-four spot.
"He's getting closer. I suppose we just want to make sure he's 100 per cent to come into the team if he does come into the team. We'll sit down and have a look at him train today," Ratten said.
"I'd probably say I'd be leaning toward him not play than play at the moment."

"We are confident he is ready to play, and we want to get him up and ready if we make the finals."

Carlton ruckman Robert Warnock is on track to make his debut for the Blues in the second half of the season after coming to terms with the foot injury that derailed the start of his 2009 campaign.
"It's not a common one. Most footballers get navicular problems, but mine was more related to the surgery," Warnock said of his injury.
"I didn't get a full range of motion back, which altered the mechanics of my foot, so everything was a bit tight which put strain on some different areas of the foot which weren't used to it.
"Both times it came on all-of-a-sudden. It wasn't like a gradual build-up of pain where you could back off a bit which is what most stress fractures are like.
"We're pretty confident we've got it sorted out now. I just have to take more time with it and build up the running intensity a bit more gradually."
