Not #39 - Heath Hocking


#501

Would love to see him play VFL with us next year.


#502

Funny story - when he first got to Eastern Ranges he’d drop the ball with his left hand to kick on his right.


#503

Great to see Hocking staying with the club!


#504

Very happy with this news…


#505

One of my favourite players. I am so glad he will still be with the club, and he is a great role model for the young guys. Depending how many injuries we have, we have very little room for non AFL listed players in the VFL side, so I assume he will be a role player eg half back or the like. I really don’t want to see him or NOB taking on ball time away from all the young would be mids like Mutch, Clark, Guelfi and Mynott.

Thought i read somewhere that NO"B has signed with an EDFL club (Strathmore?) for 2018???


#507

Great news- love this guy. May lead in to coaching opportunities if that’s what he’s after. Just pleased he’ll be part of the club still.


#508

Correctamundo.

Same principle applies to Draper and Lavender. It’s miles more important that we get proper experience and development into the young players than winning a seconds flag. Even though our last couple of seconds flags have been promptly followed by a seniors flag.


#509

make him captain


#510

Fking love Buddha


#511

Yep Strathmore


#512

Where’s the Heath Hocking option?


#513

Easy to underestimate the value of having such a passionate Bomber stick around to help mentor all the very promising kids on the list.
This is great news.
Just desserts for the first of the returning players to re-commit.
I’ll never forget Heater for that, nor the pride with which he always wears the Red n Black!!
Salt of the earth.

Terrific bloke is budda


#515

Great news for the club and for Heath.


#516

I like this a lot.


#517

#518

This is great

A lot of young mids and having someone with his aggression, experience and leadership in the VFL vital. Plus he is loved within the club.


#519

Barracked for us as a kid.


#520

Poor heath, can’t run for the board now.
