Frawley Hawks has retired.
Surprised.
Originally taken in the 2006 draft one pick before our very own Jack Reiwoldt. Other key position players taken before Jack in that draft include Gumbleton, Hanson, Reid, Brown, Thorpe and Everett.

Not surprising he has struggled to keep up in the past two years.

we took a risk downgrading our pick for Polak - could have easily missed out on Jack

One of our few really good bits of astute drafting back then.

IIRC we found out that the Hawks were going to take Thorpe instead of Riewoldt with pick 6. The club then rightly predicted that Jack would slip through to us at 13.

We took a risk but backed ourselves in.

Apparently we finished off Ebert last night. Good career, great courage including last night.

Well we took the same risk in 2017 taking Higgins and CJ before Balta

Got the most out of himself and his courage can’t be questioned.
Wanted to play on next year but with that concussion last night effectively made the decision easier I guess.
In his presser Hinkley admitted as much. He would have taken it out of his hands.

Reckon Ebert was arguably their best player before going off injured.
Whilst bad for him, that untimely knock didn't hurt our chances one bit.
