2008 Rookie List

Carlton entered Season 2008 with 2 Rookies still on the list, Michael Jamison and Sam Jacobs. The Blues would offer young Irishman Michael Shields a 2-year Rookie Contract, making it a total of 3 Irishmen and all from Cork on the list, and would select him with their fourth and final pick in the Rookie Draft.

Pick 2: Aaron Joseph, Tassie Mariners U18s, Glenorchy
Pick 18: Lachie Hill, Oakleigh Chargers U18s, Scotch College
Pick 34: David Ellard, Swan Districts, Midvale
Pick 48: Michael Shields, Ireland

As a Nominated Rookie, Jamison would be free to play all year (and would impress as a key member of our defence). In addition, Ellard would be promoted for the Round 7 fixture against the Eagles, taking Andrew Walker's place on the list temporarily given the long-term injury to Walker's shoulder.

During the year, Shields departed the Blues and returned for Ireland.

Joseph and Ellard were retained as Rookies for Season 2009.

NB Please note that for the purposes of the Blueseum, we have called the Rookie Draft at the end of the 2007 year, the 2008 Rookie Draft, given that Draft provided rookies for the 2008 playing year.
