The Northern Blues weren’t missing the chance to sign up reigning Brent Harvey best-and-fairest winner Alex Federico at the end of 2017. The big-bodied midfielder has the potential to make an instant impact with the Blues while also being very capable of developing his game a number of levels. Federico took the TAC Cup by storm in the closing stages of last year, steaming to the Northern Knights’ club champion award. Federico is familiar with the Blues, having played two games as 23rd man in 2017.
