57. Ethan Penrith


The speedster from the Northern Knights is sure to excite Blues fans in 2018. Having the potential to play in defence, on the wing or up forward, Penrith has talent in spades and is a very dangerous option for opposition clubs to deal with. A member of Carlton’s Next Generation Academy, Penrith isn’t afraid to throw his weight around and plays his football with flair. Predominantly stationed as a small defender, Penrith earned a reputation as one of the best tacklers in the TAC Cup last year and was described by former coach Justin Wenke as a “100-metre player”.
