Canberra Hawks Supporter Group
A more complete player in his second season at Hawthorn in 2015, Hartung played some excellent football on the wing, averaging 16.1 disposals with his pace and endurance a standout. He played 20 games for the year, but was the hard-luck storyon Grand Final day, when he was dropped to make way for the returning Jack Gunston. The disappointment was crushing, but he has all the tools to be a long-term player with the Hawks and should aim to be in the best 22 this year. The return to four interchange players and no subs will help him. Signed a contract extension during the finals that will keep him at the club until the end of 2017.
Player honours: NAB AFL Rising Star Nominee 2015.
Draft history: 2013 NAB AFL Draft 2nd round selection (Hawthorn) No. 24 overall.
