Carlton secured dynamic forward Orazio Fantasia. Fantasia arrives at IKON Park as a de-listed free agent, adding valuable experience to the Blues’ small forward depth. The 28-year-old reunites with Senior Coach Michael Voss, with the pair completing the 2021 season together at Port Adelaide while Voss was a senior assistant, a season in which Fantasia booted 28 goals in 15 games. Fantasia has elite forward craft when in full flight, as evidence by the fact he has kicked more than 20 goals in five of his last eight seasons. He also ranks above average among small forwards for disposals, tackles (2.8) and goals (1.4) per game. Fantasia’s elite running ability also allows him to work high up the ground, making him a dual threat to the Blues’ front half.

“We’ve had a clear focus this off-season to bring in versatile players who will add to our depth, push for senior selection and compete for multiple roles in the side,” Head of List Management Nick Austin said. “We know that strong competition for spots during the week at training, will be key to driving our performance each weekend. “Orazio is a quality AFL footballer, he’ll bring his extensive skillset into our environment and will have everything at his disposal to maximise that ability. “When we sat down with Orazio during the off-season, one thing that was clear was his hunger to get back to senior football. Both we and Orazio see the strength he can bring to our front half. “Along with the acquisition of Elijah Hollands, we have added ready-made, AFL-level talent who will hit day one of pre-season ready to push for senior selection.”

Orazio Fantasia's original clubs were Payneham Norwood Union (SA) / Norwood (SANFL) / Essendon / Port Power.
