An impressive end to his first year at the club will hopefully provide the springboard for Fraser Pearce’s 2018. Pearce arrived at the Blues from Port Melbourne and played four games for Northern last season, all coming in the final eight weeks of the season. With the ability to accumulate the ball on the inside and outside, Pearce will be a key cog in Northern’s midfield set-up. At just 21 years of age, he still has significant development left in his game, and transitioned to the #24 guernsey for his second campaign as a Blue.
