Brownlow Votes:-

Hale was durable and reliable last season and took his game to a new level in the finals. With Max Bailey in the team, the former Kangaroo spent less time in the ruck, allowing him to add extra height to the Hawks’ forward set-up. He finished the season with 20 goals and averaged just under 17 hit-outs a game. With Bailey retired, he will team up with recruit Ben McEvoy in what should be an effective ruck/forward combination.

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).
