A roller-coaster year for Hodge, but with the happiest of endings, his third time on the dais receiving the premiership cup and his fourth flag overall. But it was quite the journey to get there after a pair of suspensions that cost him five games in total and a drink-driving charge on the eve of the finals. But despite the hiccups, his football remained top-shelf and his status as the spiritual leader of the club undisputed, as witnessed by the outpouring of support from his teammates after his opening goal in the semi-final against Adelaide. Be it as the defensive general, midfield clearance expert or one-out forward, and with his trademark courage and hardness still evident, Hodge’s form in 2015 was as good as it has been for years and he will remain captain.
