Just 14 games shy of his 300th senior appearance, and truly deserving of that honour, Carlton’s little big man shows no sign of slowing in this his 16th season in the guernsey No.6. Justifiably considered one of the competition’s most durable competitors, Simpson, all being well, joins Bradley, Doull, Nicholls and Silvagni in Carlton’s coveted 300 club. 

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