Daenerys and Jaeger

Hawks take the plunge Two fan favourite Hawks took the plunge along with some other stars all in support of the fight against MND.

It probably comes as little shock to you that the likes of Jaeger, Teia and Kaiden are pioneers of their first names.

But would it surprise you to know that Blake Hardwick, Isaac Smith, Chad Wingard, Liam Shiels and Dylan Moore are also the first Hawks of their respective first names?

The only Conor or Connors that have played for the Hawks are Irish and both made appearances in 2019.

Jarman Impey is the first of his first name, but the brown and gold faithful have cheered for a Jarman before – supporting Darren for 109 games between 1991 and 1995.

Of all the names on the current list, Jack is the most common.

Scrimshaw and Gunston are the current custodians, while they have 37 namesakes that have gone before them.
