The hard work paid off for Jaryd Cachia this season. After being delisted by Carlton at the end of 2011, he spent a year playing with SANFL club Norwood. Not only did the Redlegs win the premiership, but Cachia also went on to finish fifth in the Magarey Medal count.

As a result of his success in South Australia, Cachia was redrafted by the Blues. He has made the most of his second coming, making 14 senior appearances as a key tagger for Carlton in 2013.

The 22-year-old’s efforts were recognised at Carlton’s John Nicholls Medal night, where Cachia was awarded Best First Year Player.
