Dockers' Morabito emotional about Darwin clash

DESPITE making his debut back in round one, 2010, Dockers utility Anthony Morabito admitted he got emotional after being told he was in the team to play Melbourne in Darwin tomorrow night.

That's because he hasn't played a senior game since rupturing his ACL during pre-season training late that same year. Not only that, he has endured two more knee reconstructions, making the match against the Demons just the 24th of his career.

"When you've missed a lot of footy, especially at the top level, you'd give anything just to walk down that race one more time," he said.
