Known as ‘Buckets’ by his teammates, Carlisle showed the world his marking prowess in 2013 as he developed into one of the game’s best young key-position talents. Initially starting the season in defence, Carlisle mirrored the ways of a young Dustin Fletcher, denying opposition forwards the ball with his long arms and superior body positioning before being thrown forward and proving to be a match winner at either end. With Hurley likely to find his way to the backline under Thompson, Carlisle might find himself spending more time forward in 2014.
