Yeah, thats a bit too much pressure.


I was more impressed by 238 of 50 overs in cricket as a kid apparently. Is that even possible, maybe they got the figures wrong
Luke Hodge played cricket?!?

Dunno, at least a batsman apparently.

There is a 20 minute interview on the web with a Hawthorn angle floating around I sourced
Kid has beautiful co-ordination...knows when to take an oppo on and goes for it...backs hisself in for the contest confidently...looks at home on the field!
Just great judgement...and a great finishing kick...whether his body can stand up to the rigors of a more physical game in footy than cricket remains to be seen

The raps on him are very impressive. Very fast, great kick, good reader of the play and a fantastic leader. Without injury could well have been 1st round.

We are definitely looking for the highest upside this year.

I like prospects that can play other sports like cricket because its a good support for hand eye and other skills that help competitiveness

Just watched the interview - I thought the Hodge comparisons were more to do with things like presence etc, didn't expect him to look and sound exactly like him lol.

In a way, it's virtually full circle as Hodge was a Tigers fan before being drafted.
