After a relatively quiet 2017, Breust bounced back superbly last season with 54 goals – his second-highest haul in a season – which earned him All-Australian selection for the second time. He kicked an equal career-best six goals against the Western Bulldogs in round 16 and generally caused havoc all year with his brilliance inside 50 and his ability to create goals from half-chances. Was able to pinch-hit through the middle as required, but the prospect of he and Chad Wingard in the same forward line has Hawk fans excited about this season.
