Blues veteran Kade Simpson continued to be a reliable contributor for Carlton in 2015. With his fierce competitive streak it’s no wonder the 31-year-old finished the year ranked No. 1 at the Blues for bounces and third in the entire competition. His run and dash off the halfback line is a trademark of his game. Simpson is also ranked second at Carlton in rebound 50s and third in average disposals.

On John Nicholls Medal night Simpson took home the Women of Carlton Player Ambassador Award, recognising his significant contribution to the wider community.

Simpson is poised to play his 250th game in his 14th season at the Blues.

Draft history: 2002 National AFL Draft 4th round selection No. 45 overall.
