    Had SEN on in the background and I'm sure I heard that Hodge would be playing on next year. I think David Noble was being interviewed

    Can't see where this has been posted elsewwhere.

    Anyway, Hodge has been excellent both on and off the field and I think if he holds his form, he easily desrves a spot in the side next year.

    I admit I was dubious last year - at least about the onfield benefit - but he has sold me. Makes us better each game he plays; makes the team better for years to come with the wisdom he is imparting.

    Would be awesome if he snuck a final in before he went out too...

    No real surprise, he signed on for 2 years anyway didn't he?

    I'd expect him to scale down his on field role though particularly in the 2nd half of the year to let the younger guys step up and take over the on field coaching/directing role, 15-18 games for him next year IMO even if fit.

    Maybe come in for the finals.:D

    Adding fuel to Hodge playing on... Marngrook has just suggested an ex team mate of Cyril has called him about playing for the lions next season.

    Wow. Just .. wow. Get him to act as the forward line general I guess and do for them what hodge has done for the back line. Could be interesting. We become the hawks lite -hawks old?

    Think we might have to trade for him after our full back retirement rules

    Can we sign Hodge for an Assistant Coach position now? Starting in 2020. To valuable to let slip.

    Hodge still look as fit as a mallee bull and looking at the way he glided around the park last week he's still good to go

    Speed catches him out when we turn the ball over and the opposition are aloud to move it forward quickly. I think I remember Hodgey going after Atley at one stage hahah.

    But he is so valuable out there. An absolute gun. Such a privilege to have him at the Lions.

    He’s prepared to do the clear the den ads so he must have a robust sense of humour. And self esteem - the boys in last years ad copped a flogging. even got panned in footy tv shows.

    Absolutely, his footy IQ is through the roof and would be highly sort after. Hope his family are enjoying the winter (what winter) and don't want to head back home to freezing Melbourne anytime soon.
