He skips leg day!
Did I tell you I recently saw Tom Hawkins in Bunnings wearing short shorts? Tom specialises in legs.;)

Just need to look at his Instagram page to know that...

What illustrious company Jezza joins - Polly Farmer, Gary Malarkey, Gary Ablett Senior, and Travis Varcoe.

It will raise debate on which is the most famous number worn at Geelong, 4, 5 or something else?

To me #5 is still comfortably and easily number one.

Purely due to Gary Ablett, Polly Farmer, and then perhaps Gary Malarkey (in that order too). Then you add Jack Evans (premiership player in 1937), Syd Smith (premiership player in 1952), and Varcoe it's hard to go past.

After that, any of #2 (Denis Marshall, Bruce Lindner, Tom Harley), #9 (Leo and Michael Turner, James Kelly), #23 (Doug Wade, Larry Donohue, Nathan Ablett), #26 (Bill Ryan, Jack Hawkins, Barry Stoneham, Tom Hawkins)* fill in the remaining spots. Probably could add #35 too (Billy Goggin, Paul Chapman, and now Dangerfield).

(* - amazing how frequently key forwards, and pretty good ones - fill in #23 and #26 for us).
 

you pick one

NO5 the clear winner I couldn't split 26 and 35 for second place.

Hope everyone watched that interview, as he seems like an absolutely class person. Was asked whether he feels he has to prove himself now that he'll be running around with guys like Sel, and his answer was basically 'I've thought about this a fair bit, and I do feel like I'm last in line - the 43rd player - ... I feel like I've hit the refresh button and I've got to prove myself all over again...I don't see myself as a guaranteed selection, and know I need to work hard'

That's a fantastic attitude to have, and really makes me even happier about his trade-in - given he exudes leadership and will be able to offer mentorship to the younger guys once Hawk and Sel have likely moved on end 2022

Good get Partridge - some fantastic names amongst those numbers - #5 my personal favourite but #26 & #35 not too shabby either.
As a fellow left footer I'm looking forward to another lefty in the #5 - hope he goes as well as the last one - Polly :thumbsu:

Just my opinion - but re the jumper number i would have given him number 10 ( if it was available )

Reason for that - i think he is the closest player Geelong have had to the great John Sharrock

Booming left foot kick - and how he moves half forward / centre half forward - he is probably a little bit bigger than Sharrock - but Sharrock did play one year quite a few games at FB- so he wasnt small either

But Cameron is like Sharrock - all class - dangerous - quick - long left foot kick - lets hope he kicks plenty of goals

Australian Cricket Team,
He will but it's in the finals we need him to kick plenty of goals.
He has a 2.55 goals per game average during H&A.
That drops away significantly in the finals to 1.77 goals in finals.

Eerily similar to Hawkins I'm afraid.
Most forwards would have their goal averages go down in finals... They are coming up against good defences/defenders and arent going to be able to kick big bags against scrub teams.
