Garnering a reputation in his early seasons for his ability to weave in and out of midfield traffic, Zac Fisher embraced a small forward role in the second half of the 2020 season. With four goals in his return game against West Coast, Fisher’s capacity to make something happen when the ball is in his vicinity – either through his skill or forward pressure – will be a key asset in Carlton’s attacking mix this season. The ‘Slippery Fish’, who re-signed at Carlton until at least the end of 2023, has been nominated by teammates as one of the standout trainers of pre-season.
