This Sunday, Hawthorn Hawks fans have plenty to be excited about as three talented new recruits gear up for their club debuts against Essendon at the MCG. Karl Amon, Fergus Greene, and Lloyd Meek are all set to make a splash in brown and gold, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll bring to the field.
Karl Amon, a 27-year-old Victorian native, is returning to his home state after nine seasons with Port Adelaide. Amon joined the Hawks as an unrestricted free agent last September and is poised to make a significant impact on the club’s young list. General Manager of Football Rob McCartney emphasized Amon’s elite playing ability and his commitment to the club’s exciting journey.
Fergus Greene, 25, inked a deal with the Hawks as a delisted free agent in November, giving up a job selling pens for another shot at AFL greatness. This crafty goal-kicker has dominated at the VFL level for the past two seasons, and McCartney praised his hard work and the strength of the Box Hill-Hawthorn partnership in developing players like Greene.

Ruckman Lloyd Meek, 24, joined Hawthorn in October after attracting widespread interest across the league. The 203cm giant began his career with Fremantle, playing 15 games, and is now ready to take on a greater role with the Hawks. McCartney expressed confidence in Meek’s ability to make the most of his new opportunity.
As these three players prepare to make their debuts, Hawthorn fans can look forward to some fresh talent and excitement on the field this weekend. Don’t miss the action as Amon, Greene, and Meek bring their skills to the table in what promises to be an electrifying match against Essendon at the MCG.
