Carlton coach Brendon Bolton says Jack Silvagni has won his AFL place on merit and not off the back of his famous surname.

Silvagni will follow in the footsteps of his grandfather Sergio and father Stephen, who won four premierships between them, when he debuts against Collingwood.

"Third generation makes it that little bit more special (but) he's kicked 14 goals in the last month. It was earned," he said.
