3AW is reporting through their "Rumour File" that Tom Ruggles was indeed dropped for the game against Carlton last weekend, for being late to the ground.

When the final teams were handed down, Ruggles was still in the side, however when the teams went out for their warm-up, Ruggles was nowhere to be seen, while emergency Jordan Murdoch warmed up with his team-mates.

"Racetrack Rat" rang up 3AW and suggested that Ruggles got lost getting to the Etihad Stadium, with the club denying that Ruggles went to the MCG, instead of the Docklands based stadium. 

The caller also added that Ruggles won't be up for selection this weekend because of turning up late for the match.
