With the team now on a break, we’re taking a look back at each player’s year in statistics. Here's the review for Carlton midfielder Ed Curnow:

Career: 88

GOALS
Season 2015: 0
Career: 11

KEY AFL STATISTICS (averages in brackets)
Disposals: 478 (6.33) Contested Possessions: 185 (2.33) Uncontested Possessions: 290 (4.33) Tackles: 98 (1.67)

OVERVIEW
Ed Curnow was one of four Blues to play every game in season 2015 and he consistently topped the stats sheets.

In Round 16 against Fremantle, Curnow was a standout. He amassed 32 disposals including eight tackles, six clearances and 10 contested possessions.

Curnow’s outstanding season was recognised at the Blues’ best and fairest night. The versatile on-baller won the Spirit of Carlton Award and came equal fourth in the race for the John Nicholls medal with 57 votes.

The 25-year-old’s impressive form over the season earned him a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the Blues until at least the end of 2017.

HE SAID IT
“It means a lot to me and I’m rapt to be staying at the Blues for the next couple of years.

“In 2013 I was purely tagging, but this year I’ve been able to go in defense, play on the wing, and on the ball a bit more in my own right. I think as long as I can play various roles it will help me stay around a bit longer.”

- Ed Curnow speaking to Radio Sport National after signing a two-year contract extension in September.

THEY SAID IT
“Curnow has made a huge contribution to our midfield this season and plays his role for the team week in, week out. We’re delighted he wants to stay at Ikon Park.”

- Carlton’s Head of Football Andrew McKay speaking about Curnow’s commitment to the Blues and his form in 2015.

SEASON HIGHLIGHT
In Round 19 against the Pies, Curnow was awarded Carlton’s tackle of the week. Reading the play to perfection, he closed down a handball receive on the wing at the MCG and tackled the Collingwood player off the ball. He was ultimately awarded a holding-the-ball free kick.
