Player Bio

Another key Hawk whose season was cut short by injury, Frawley suffered a toe injury in round eight against the Brisbane Lions in Tasmania and didn’t play again for the rest of the season. The experienced defender was enjoying a good season – registering a career-high in one-percenters, averaging 7.9 a game – before the injury and how he fits into the backline in 2018 is interesting given the rapid development of Kaiden Brand. Frawley has recovered well and returned to the start of pre-season fit and raring to go. 

Player honours: Melbourne 2nd best and fairest 2010; Melbourne 3rd best and fairest 2011; All-Australian 2010; International Rules Series 2010, 2011; Hawthorn premiership side 2015. 

Brownlow Medal: career votes 8.

Previous AFL club: Melbourne (2007-14: 139 games, 18 goals).

Draft history: 2006 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Melbourne) No. 12 overall; 2014 unrestricted free agent (Hawthorn).
