David Vernon

The second half of his 2017 season was derailed by a groin injury, but he finished with an average of 5.8 tackles a game – a career-best. The Hawks missed his hustle and bustle close to goal as well as his great high-marking and ability to jag an important goal. When fully fit, he is an important part of the forward make-up and the Hawks need him up and running from the start of the season if they are to climb back into the finals. 

Player honours: premiership sides 2013, 2014, 2015.

Brownlow Medal: career votes 3.

Draft history: 2010 NAB AFL Draft 4th round selection (Hawthorn) No. 66 overall.
