The Carltonians Coterie
S.A & R Tactor Builders
Kade Simpson’s outstanding 2014 campaign saw him finish third in the John Nicholls Medal count and take out the High Achiever Award, presented by Carlton’s longest-serving coterie group – the Carltonians.
The slender midfielder was just one of three Blues to run out for every game in the 2014 season.
He took the most marks of any Carlton player for the season, was ranked 11th for total marks overall in the league, and ranked sixth overall in the league for total kicks.
Consistent, courageous and skilful, there are so many qualities to like about the Carlton 200-gamer.
Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 4th round selection No. 45 overall.
