Guernsey Numbers - Russell #47

Guernsey Numbers - Russell #47 Learn the history of the number forty-seven jumper at Carlton as we look at all the new guernsey numbers for the 2015 season.

New Carlton rookie Fraser Russell is set to wear guernsey No.47 for Carlton.

The 22-year-old was added to Carlton's list as a Category B Rookie, meaning he won't be able to play AFL in 2015, but will spend the year developing his skills.

The former 200 and 400-metre runner will now follow in the footsteps of former Carlton greats Wes Lofts and Peter Francis.

Lofts played only five games before switching to jumper No.20, whilst 1979 premiership player Francis played a total of 47 games.
