2014 Review: Luke Breust

It’s hard to believe in 2011, Luke Breust was just a player with some potential but still a speculative pick off the rookie list. Now he's one of the game's best small forwards. We review his season.

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.

Brownlow Votes:-

One of the most effective small forwards in the game, Breust added 40 goals in 2013 to his 45 from the year before. Dangerous as a lead-up option or at the foot of a pack, he also had the most goal assists at the Hawks and laid the most tackles. The New South Welshman played every game on the road to the premiership, finishing equal eighth in the club’s best and fairest. Can take his game to another level this year by improving his set-shot accuracy. If he does that, he should enter All-Australian discussions.
