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.

Debut: AFL 2011
Recruited from: Temora/NSW-ACT U18
Brownlow Votes:-

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.

Draft history: 2009 Rookie Draft selection (Hawthorn) No. 47; 2011 NAB AFL Draft Rookie elevation selection (Hawthorn) no. 77
