39 Previously worn by Tim Mohr (2019)
42 Previously worn by Teia Miles (2015-2019)


New additions: Sam Frost, Jonathan Patton

Are some of the young players set for a lower number? Scrimshaw is an obvious one who could very well be given number 14. Cousins and Hanrahan could both move up as well. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lewis moved from 8 to number 2.

With more list changes to come some of the other potential vacant numbers that could become available; 25, 27, 28, 32, 38, 39 and 42.

Why induce player comparisons?

Patton - 2

Frost - 25 (assuming Schoey is moved on) otherwise 27 if Pitto moves.

Cousins, Ollie and Moore to change numbers you’d think?

What I’d like to see...

2 Lewis
8 Hanrahan
14 Scrimshaw
25 Patton
27 Frost
28 Moore
32 Cousins
All for Lewis upgrading to number 2. Feels kore justifiable giving it to a kid who has been in the Hawks system since the draft.

Surely the club hasn’t sold many jumpers with number 8 yet.

Does anyone know if Scrimmers even wants a number change? Maybe he likes 35? It's an aesthetically pleasing number. It could also make him super freaky!
Unlikely

Started in "37" for the Gold Coast in his debut year in 2017
Then moved to "2" the next year in 2018

No matter what he does, he'll get compared to Birchall. Happened before he was drafted, happened at Gold Coast, happened once traded to Hawks, happened when playing at Hawks.

Why not just give him 14? Not going to add any more pressure than already has.
