AFL clubs: Carlton
Carlton debut: Round 1, 2019
Recruited from: Geelong Falcons (VIC)
Brownlow Medal votes: 6

There aren’t too many debut seasons in the history of the game which have been better than that of Sam Walsh. Arriving with the pressure of being the No.1 pick, Walsh delivered in spades and blew the expectation out of the water, finishing the year as Carlton’s first NAB AFL Rising Star and breaking the record for most disposals in a debut season. With outstanding work ethic and a natural reading of the game, Walsh won’t rest on his laurels and will be determined to take his game to new levels alongside co-captain Patrick Cripps in the middle of the ground.

Draft history: 2018 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Carlton) No.1 overall.
