The AFL has confirmed Geelong and Carlton players will observe a minute's silence on Friday night to honour Bob Davis.

The AFL Hall of Famer, whose 189-game playing career with the Cats included two premierships, coached Geelong to the 1963 flag.

Davis died after a recent battle with illness on Monday night, aged 82.

A video tribute will be screened before the match at Etihad Stadium and Geelong players will wear black armbands.

"As well as players, coaches and officials, I'm sure all football supporters attending the game on Friday will remember Bob and his family and his wonderful contribution to Australian football," AFL chief Andrew Demetriou said.
