John Kennedy is the coach who delivered Hawthorn their first three flags in 1961, ‘71, ’ 6, and the man said to be responsible for setting generations of hard, combative and premiership devouring Hawthorn sides in motion.
Alastair Clarkson is the committed, inspired disciple – equally successful in his own right, but one who has instilled the spirit and mantras that formed the core of the Kennedy philosophy, while simultaneously incorporating his own unique innovation that has changed today’s game.
Alastair sat down with his greatest influencer to talk everything from Kennedy’s Commandos, the philosophies, rivalries and relationships he built in his time, right through to the era that Clarkson has himself now constructed, and the soldiers who have lead the charge.
