2020 was another frustrating one for Caleb Marchbank, with the talented defender injuring his knee in the final quarter of the last pre-season game after spending his summer recuperating from a serious neck injury. Unable to take to the field for any senior football last year, it’s easy to forget that Marchbank had strung together some career-best performances in 2019 before his neck fracture, starring against Collingwood and in a win over Fremantle. When fit, he’s a vital cog in Carlton’s defensive set-up.
