Some time ago, and with the assistance of the AFL and supporting statistician Stephen Williamson, a team of Carlton senior players, dubbed the “International XVIII” was named. The team comprised a starting 18 plus healthy interchange of six more players known to have been born overseas.

To that interchange can now be added a seventh and eighth – Zach Tuohy’s Irish-born contemporaries County Louth’s Ciaran Byrne and Cork’s Ciaran Sheehan.

Carlton's International XVIII (plus eight):

Backs Ted Brewis (born Bedlington, England) Michael Sexton (born Lae, Papua & New Guinea) Bernie Bignell (born Birmingham, England)
Half-backs Robbert Klomp (born The Netherlands) Val Perovic (born Croatia) Zach Tuohy (born Portlaoise, Ireland)
Centreline Milham Hanna (born Kantara, Lebanon) George Renwick (born Surrey, England) Wayne Blackwell (born London, England)
Half-forwards Ian Muller (born South Africa) Fred Pringle (born Assam, India) Henry McPetrie (born Cathcart, Glasgow, Scotland)
