AFL clubs: Gold Coast Suns, Carlton
Debut: Round 4, 2011
Recruited from: Gold Coast Suns
Brownlow Medal votes: -

Carlton recruited former Gold Coast Suns player Matt Shaw in the 2017 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

Taken with pick No.3, the hard-running wingman is known for his ability to break the lines and take the game on.

As an access pick for the Suns in the 2010 national draft, Shaw spent seven seasons on the Gold Coast and notched up 102 senior appearances.

After making his debut in Round 4 against Melbourne in 2011, the 25-year-old’s trademark golden locks were often seen zipping through the midfield and carrying the ball along the wing.

The Patterson Lakes product had a terrific season in the NEAFL in 2017, consistently generating a lot of ball and setting up his teammates.
