A tough year for the clever small forward and his 33 goals for the season, while the second most for the Hawks, was his lowest return since his debut season in 2011. There were flashes of brilliance as always, but with Cyril Rioli and Paul Puopolo missing large chunks of the season, opposition clubs put more time and effort into stopping him. Breust, who signed a contract extension at the start of last year that keeps him a Hawk until the end of 2021, should get off the leash a bit more this year.
