Horsham is part of the old Essendon recruiting zone right? Plenty of Essendon fans out that way
Yup, Tim Watson, Glenn Hawker and Merv Neagle all came from Dimboola (about 30mins away from Horsham) whilst Roger Merrett was from Kaniva, and Shane Heard was from Horsham.

Apparently Hobbs'dad and grandad are Bomber die-hards.

I was in Horsham and Dimboola on the weekend. Pretty disappointing to report there are no statues of Hobbs or Watson anywhere. Two three-time premiership players from the greatest ever football club in any code should demand statues.
