THE Blues’ No. 6 has long been heralded as the heart and soul of the Carlton Football Club.
Now, on the eve of Kade Simpson’s 300th AFL game, Carlton Media and Virgin Australia present Heart & Soul, an insightful and inspiring documentary about the Blues' little warrior.
Heart & Soul follows the story of ‘Simmo’s’ football journey into Carlton’s 300-game club, which now places him alongside Blues champions Craig Bradley (375), Bruce Doull (356) John Nicholls (328) and Stephen Silvagni (312).
From his junior coaches to his loving parents, each one gives their own account of what makes Simpson tick, what motivates him to compete and what he’s like away from the football field.
Shot over a number of months, the documentary features interviews with former Carlton coach Denis Pagan, as well as past players Brad Fisher and Brendan Fevola.
Current teammates and members of the leadership group, captain Marc Murphy and vice-captain Sam Docherty also detail what it’s like to play alongside Simmo and what he means to the Club and its supporters.
This truly is a much-watch for every Bluebagger!
