The land of the Blarney’s hard-running half-back flanker took the best part of 2017 to get over a ruptured ACL, and sent a scare through the ranks when he went over on the SCG in the final home and away round of the season. Fortunately ‘Casey’ experienced nothing more than a rolled ankle, and expect a cherry-ripe Byrne to feature prominently through the 2018 football calendar year.

Draft history: 2014 Rookie Draft international selection (Carlton) No.64; 2016 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Carlton).
