Stratton doesn’t earn rave reviews outside Hawthorn, and that’s probably the way he and the club like it. An integral part of the defensive mix, it is Stratton’s ability to play tall and short that makes him so important to the Hawks. He twice stitched up 172cm All-Australian small forward Eddie Betts during the season, yet in the Grand Final, he comfortably handled the 191cm Jack Darling. Stratton played 24 of 25 games after a much better run on the injury front and about the only blemish on his season was a missed shot for goal in the Grand Final.

Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star nominee 2010; premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.
Draft history: 2009 NAB AFL Draft 3rd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 46 overall.
