Breust hopes accuracy will continue into IR test

HE IS one of the AFL's deadliest shots at goal, but Hawthorn sharpshooter Luke Breust admits he's finding it tough to come to grips with the round ball ahead of the looming Virgin Australia International Rules Series against Ireland.

Selection in the 2014 All-Australian team was confirmation Breust is among the best small forwards in the game. He kicked 57 goals for the year – one of three Hawks to crack the half-century – including a streak of 29 without a miss, a feat matched only by the great Tony Lockett. Breust made his set-shot kicking a feature of his game and it showed. As his confidence grew, he also enjoyed bursts through the midfield, where he used the ball well and, with so much power through the hips – a by-product of his rugby league upbringing – he was hard to tackle. After a quiet opening to the finals, he was at the top of his game in the Grand Final with three goals. More midfield time beckons in 2015.
