A torn ACL suffered in the Round 9 Fremantle fixture put paid to Rowe’s 2017 season, which ironically set in motion the Liam Jones metamporphosis. But that was then, this is now, and the big-hearted backman returns with the competition for spots on in earnest.   

Draft history: 2006 Rookie Draft selection (Sydney) No. 62; 2011 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Carlton) No. 44 overall.
