Damian Monkhorst - Ruck Coach

Damian Monkhorst joined the club as Ruck Coach in 2010, following a stellar career at AFL level.

Known as one of the league's best and toughest ruckmen to play against during his career with both Collingwood and St Kilda, Monkhorst has passed on his knowledge to Hawthorn's ruck stocks since his arrival.

A member of the Collingwood’s 1990 premiership team, Monkhorst played 215 games and kicked 45 goals between 1988 and 2000 and twice represented Victoria in State of Origin.

Monkhorst was inducted into the Collingwood Hall of Fame in 2014.
