SUMMARY
Won Fremantle’s goal kicking in his debut season after a year out of the game. At 22, McCarthy has plenty of time ahead of him to develop and grow into a key forward role.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (David Hale)
Cam has done the bulk of work in the pre-season. He has looked sharp; he is another one in the tall forward hybrid role. Hopefully he can play to his strengths and he has done a bit of work on his goal-kicking, an area where he needed to get back to his accuracy. He has had a good summer, so expecting a good year from him.

a year out of the game.
