The Journey | S2E7 Season 2 | Episode 7. In the final episode of Season 2 of The Journey, go behind-the-scenes as Carlton wrap up the 2017 season.

The Carlton Football Club embarked on the second stage of its journey under senior coach Brendon Bolton in 2017.

After registering six wins, the Blues finished the season in 16th place on the ladder.

Despite falling four points short of the 2016 season, Carlton won more quarters in 2017, demonstrating the growth of the playing group in its second year with Bolton at the helm.

With the team now on a break, we’re analysing each player’s year in statistics. Here’s the review for Carlton midfielder Cameron Polson.

Career: 1

AFL STATISTICS (from one game)

Disposals: 11, Kicks: 3, Contested possessions: 5, Tackles: 2


After being recruited to Carlton with pick No.59 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft, Cameron Polson added speed and pressure to the Blues’ list.

Learning the ropes of professional football, the 19-year-old paved his way as a midfielder in the VFL before making his AFL debut against Port Adelaide in Round 5.

On debut for the Northern Blues in Round 1, the youngster collected 28 disposals and 15 handball receives in an impressive first outing.


He went on to play 10 matches for Northern in 2017, but was restricted to just one AFL match with a shoulder injury hampering the second half of his debut season.

Expected to be fit for the beginning of his second pre-season, Carlton fans can look forward to watching Polson return to the action in 2018.
