You could’ve been easily fooled if you thought Mason Blakey had been around for much longer than a single season at the Northern Blues. The defender slotted in seamlessly for his first year in 2017, on the way to being one of the club’s best debutants as well as recognised for his efforts on and off the field as Best Clubman. Blakey is a hard-working defender, capable of locking down his opponents while also providing drive from the back half. The 2016 Northern Knights captain moved to the number seven guernsey after previously donning the number 45.
