Veteran midfielder who was missed in the first half of 2018 as he battled an injury to his left foot. But he finished the season strongly, playing the final nine games and starring in the round 19 win against Gold Coast. After six seasons as captain, he has relinquished the role this year, which should enable him to concentrate on his football. But his experience and guidance will be vital, remaining a member of Carlton’s five-man leadership group. The dual John Nicholls medallist showed his loyalty and faith in the Blues’ future last year by re-signing until the end of next season and is due to play his 250th game in the opening round against Richmond.

Draft history: 2005 NAB AFL Draft priority selection (Carlton) No.1 overall.
