Wow.
Great pick up.
I’m on his bandwagon.
Will be a Brownlow medalist, B&F and twice Norm Smith medalist.
I’m not asking for much…

“In a football sense, Hobbs’ leadership style has been inspired by Chris Judd and Richmond premiership skipper Trent Cotchin, of whom he is a particularly avid fan.

“I’ve listened to a few podcasts with Chris Judd and I think he was a fantastic leader,” Hobbs said. “I think Trent Cotchin has been an unreal leader as well, and I go for the Tigers so I’ve really watched ‘Cotch’ and I think he’s done huge things and really turned the club around.”

It comes as no surprise to learn that Hobbs focuses on leading by example, but he also places a firm emphasis on improving those around him.”

Something something future captain… something something etc etc

Anyone think we’ve got too many mids that need centre bounce attendances?

Stringer, Merrett, parish, Shiel?, Caldwell, McGrath, Perkins?, hobbs.

Maybe McGrath to half back?

Still happy with hobbs given no gun small forwards were available

Easily the best interview so far of the draft. Looks pro. Was clearly elated for us to pick him. Bullish as all heck

I would have been happy with Sinn, Hobbs, Wanganeen-Milera even Amiss and a couple of others I cannot think of. Hobbs was the one I really wanted but I thought he would go in the top 6-7 picks. I am ecstatic to get Ben Hobbs to the Bombres!
