Brownlow Votes:-

The best thing for the experienced forward/ruckman in 2014 was to spend time in the VFL mid-season after a few quiet weeks at AFL level. He regained form and confidence in the nick of time and reclaimed his senior berth in the run to the finals. He led the Hawks in hit-outs and was fourth for contested marks and marks inside 50. Another who played well through the finals, Hale has made the most of his chances since joining the Hawks at the end of 2010.

Draft history: 2001 National AFL Draft 1st round selection (North Melbourne) No. 7 overall; 2010 NAB AFL Draft traded by North Melbourne for No. 27 (Kieran Harper) and No. 71 (Ben Mabon).
