Player bio

At a glance

Junior clubs: Mornington (VIC)
Debut: Round 2, 2017
Recruited from: Frankston Dolphins (VFL)/Sydney Swans
Brownlow votes: -

A smooth-moving, high-efficiency defender, Newman was Carlton’s last acquisition of the 2018 trade period, sealing his move to the Blues with 10 minutes remaining. The former Swan made his mark as a mature-age recruit, slotting into Sydney’s miserly defence to play 31 games over the course of two seasons. With an accurate left foot and the ability to rotate off the wing, Newman — who cost the Blues a future fourth-round draft pick — could prove to be an astute pick-up for his new club.
