Season review: Sam Petrevski-Seton

The Blues’ young playing list was faced with a number of challenges in 2018 and as a result, finished the year with fewer wins than previous seasons.

However, the valuable experience gained by first and second-year players, coupled with the resilience built within the team, will no doubt hold the Club in good stead for years to come.

With the side now on a break, we’re analysing each player’s year in statistics. Here’s the review for Carlton’s No. 5, Sam Petrevski-Seton. 


2018: 22
Career: 42


2018: 5
Career: 15

KEY AFL STATISTICS (averages in brackets):

Disposals: 354 (16.09) Handballs: 148 (6.73) Contested possessions: 123 (5.59) Inside 50s: 34 (1.55) Tackles: 95 (4.32)


As one of only two players to appear in every game this season, ‘Samo’ has recorded 42 games in his first two years at the Blues.

Drafted in 2016, the 20-year-old spent plenty of time in the midfielder, learning from the likes of Patrick Cripps and Marc Murphy.

In Carlton’s Round 19 victory over the Gold Coast Suns, the Western Australian amassed a career-high 26 possessions and gave his forwards supply with five inside 50s.

Heading into his third pre-season campaign, Petrevski-Seton will be looking to build on his performance in 2019.  


Although he didn’t have a high-disposal game in Carlton’s win over Essendon in Round 8, the smooth mover kicked a goal, racked up nine contested possessions and laid eight tackles – playing his role in the victory.


In the first quarter against the Brisbane Lions in Round 16, ‘Samo’ capitalised on a turnover and slotted a goal from just inside 50. With Brisbane possessing the footy coming out of defence, the Blues swarmed their opponents and applied manic pressure. They forced an error from the Lions and made them pay full price.
