BROWN: HAWKS HAVE WHAT IT TAKES

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

MATTY Johns reck­ons the NRL sea­son is wide open, but that cer­tainly isn’t the case with the AFL.

Hawthorn have been pre­miers the past three years and Fox Footy com­men­ta­tor Jonathan Brown (left) says they could make it four straight.

“The story of this AFL sea­son is, ‘Can Hawthorn four-peat,” he says. “I know from my sit­u­a­tion at the Bris­bane Lions it is a dif­fi­cult moun­tain to climb. We got very close.”

Brown was part of the dom­i­nant Lions team cap­tained by Michael Voss that won the Grand Fi­nal in 2001, 2002 and 2003. He re­tired in 2014.

“I love watch­ing great sides play and dy­nas­ties un­fold­ing be­fore your eyes,” Brown says. “I am an un­abashed fan of [Hawthorn cap­tain] Luke Hodge. He re­minds me of Vossy.”
