Another member of the famed Carlton quintet nominated for Rising Star honours last year, the polished midfielder looked the part until abductor, hip and ankle complaints put paid to the second half of his season. Re-contracted to Carlton on a two-year deal, Cuningham’s name has been touted as a starting half-back flanker in Sam Docherty’s absence.

Draft history: 2015 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.23 overall.
