Sam Rowe’s breakout season with Carlton has been rewarded, with the Blues re-signing the key defender for a further two seasons.
Rowe’s contract will see him remain at Visy Park until the end of the 2016 AFL season.
The 26-year-old was reportedly initially offered a one-year deal, but after a standout season he agreed to a two-year extension with the Blues.
Rowe has played in all but one of Carlton’s games this season, and has become a fan favourite for his hard-working, honest nature and proved to be a pivotal figure in the Blues’ back six.
The 198cm giant only made his AFL debut in 2013 after sitting out the 2012 season after he was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
He joined the Blues at pick no.44 in the 2011 National Draft, after being rookie listed by the Sydney Swans for two seasons without a senior appearance for the club.
