The 32yo has returned to training and is looking svelt and fit. I believe he wants to kick as many goals as he can before he has to retire and I believe he can kick 1200 goals, he is currently 7th on 944 goals.

1. Tony Lockett (StK/Syd) - 1360
2. Gordon Coventry (Coll) - 1299
3. Jason Dunstall (Haw) - 1254
4. Doug Wade (Geel/NM) - 1057
5. Gary Ablett (Haw/Geel) - 1031
6. Jack Titus (Rich) - 970
7. Lance Franklin (Haw/Syd) - 944
8. Matthew Lloyd (Ess) - 926
9. Leigh Matthews (Haw) - 915
10. Peter McKenna (Coll/Carl) - 874

Don't think he gets 1200, 1100 with a clear injury run is possible (3 x 50 gets him close) but requires him to play 17+ games a season and Sydney might not make finals if their 2019 form is indicative.

Gets no where near 1200, lol ridiculous to think otherwise.

I say he finishes on 1085 goals. It will be his knee which gives in and ends a stellar career.

Hardly recognised him in the article this morning, looks almost as lean as when he was drafted by Hawthorn!



I reckon player and club will do whatever they can for him to reach 1000. Anything after that would be a bonus. So I reckon somewhere between 1000 and 1100.

The ranges in the poll are a bit off. Barring injury he will get to 1000, assuming he plays on the year after he should get to 1050. My guess is he finishes between 1050 and 1100.

Not sure how many years he has left but don't see him getting to 1200, but he's some outside chance to get above 1100 if he can play 3-4 more seasons of 18+ games each.
