He also collected 27 possessions at 70 per cent efficiency, with his toughness around the contest and clean ball use critical in helping the Hawks to their fourth win of the season.

The youngster has gone from strength to strength since he was drafted by Hawthorn with Pick 2 in the 2021 Mid-season Rookie Draft.

Across the 10 rounds so far this season, Newcombe has averaged 22.5 disposals, 5.1 marks and 4.2 tackles, establishing himself as a key part of Coach Sam Mitchell's midfield.

With less than 20 career games under his belt, this is only just the beginning for the excitement machine.
