After another solid pre-season, Irishman Ciaran Byrne will be looking to add more senior games to his resume in 2016. The defender was upgraded from the rookie list in 2015 and made his debut in Round 3, but he suffered a hamstring injury at training the following week, which hampered the rest of his season.

The Irishman showed plenty of promise in his debut game, with his explosiveness and his fierce attack at the ball clearly on display.

All Carlton supporters will be hoping to see Byrne back on the park in 2016.

Draft history: 2014 Rookie Draft international selection (Carlton) No.64.
