‘Hulk’ Hawkins

Tom Hulk Hawkins

Tom “Hulk” Hawkins

A fired up Tom Hawkins had a ‘day out’ against Carlton at Docklands Stadium (6 June 2014), dragging in 10 marks and kicking 4 goals personally.

His powerful display from the very start was on show, and during the game prompted me to nickname him as Hulk Hawkins. He monstered the Blues with great marking and teamwork that brought his team mates into the game. His monstrous efforts ensured Geelong prevailed with a 107 to 102 win.

The clincher was kicked by… well you have to watch the video below to see who it was.

Note: I was pretty excited about Tom’s performance, so I photoshopped the image above to illustrate how awesome he was!
