Backed himself to remain with the Hawks last season and didn’t make it back at AFL level until round 17, but once there, Whitecross thrived, averaging 17.3 possessions and two tackles a game. His toughness, hard running and smart ball use through the midfield added an extra dimension to the side and his 22-possession effort against Geelong in the qualifying final was outstanding. Whitecross triggered a one-year contract extension and the hope at Hawthorn is that he gets the chance to win that elusive premiership after successive ACL injuries cruelled his hopes during the 2013-15 three-peat.
