    JB, you're normally on the money with the rumour mill.

    What whispers do you have or going to make up ?

    Heard some Hawks talking in the bar at Harrup Park. Going for 3 in a row, something the club has never done. Have the Hawks kept all their premiership players from this year ?

    I bumped into a Hawks player the other day &'he said a few have retired & moved back interstate but no doubt they will land a heap of recruits as per years gone by.

    They are most likely poaching them from other clubs as we speak. :(

    Yeah things looking positive for the hawks, looks like we are holding onto the majority of our premiership team and are going to get a couple of former premiership players back for next season. Training starts next week.

    Talking of poaching heard a rumor over the weekend that the magpies had offered Nathan Peters from the saints the senior coaching job. That wouldn't go down well with the saints.

    Young fella tells me in the shop Hawks are doing a recruiting drive in night clubs.

    Fairly embarrassing one would suggest.

    He was only in &'out of Mackay for this year as part of his exercise science degree, didn't think he had that much of an impact last season but still a quality loss for the Hawks.

    Signing this time of year means jack crackers, l heard Peters goes camping with a few of the Hawks players so it doesn't surprise me he would go there.
    Saints will be dirty!

    He doesn't like being accountable so will fit in well at the Hawks, handy player though.

    Our style of play has been good enough to deliver the last 2 premierships though!!
