The roar of KREUZZZ never sounded so good when the big-man ran onto the MCG in his first game back after a year on the sidelines.

After injuring his foot in Round 1, 2014, Kreuzer spent months in rehab to get back to his best – and the wait was worth it. He took contested marks, kicked goals and as always, provided a contest. His reputation as a fierce competitor never let him down.

After recommitting to Carlton at the end of 2015, there’s no doubt all Blues fans will be looking forward to watching a fully fit Kreuz in the year ahead.

Draft history: 2007 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No. 1 overall.
