A broken arm and a torn meniscus pretty much put paid to the first half of the season for the inspirational skipper, but he played well upon his return, averaging 22.9 disposals and 3.2 tackles a match and was Hawthorn’s best player in the finals. His leadership will be even more critical in 2017 as the Hawks continue to transition and it also begs the question of where he will play in what could be his final season. A move to the forward line would not surprise. Hodge will play his 300th game towards the end of the season.
