24 December 1988
2006 NAB AFL Draft Pick No. 67
2007 AFL Debut
Originally from Darwin, Joe was recruited by the Blues with their 5th round selection in the 2006 NAB National Draft. Joe had a successful NAB AFL U18 Championship as captain of the Northern Territory team and was unlucky not to be named All-Australian. In 2006 he also won the Best & Fairest award at senior level for Darwin.
A hard running defender, Joe’s impressive skills and speed allowed him to break into the Carlton senior side, making his AFL debut in round 4, 2007. Joe added four more games to his debut to take his tally to 5 for the club.
Anderson managed four games in 2008 and three games during the 2009 season.
Joe shows lots of promise and will no doubt add more depth to the Carlton Football Club in his role as a quick and skilful defender.
