Item Description

The Fields of Gold Wall is a celebration of our 2013 journey for the Premiership Cup. Only pictures from winning games were placed on the wall that is located on the players level of our Waverley Park facility. It was considered a great honour amongst the players to have your photo placed on display. The players and coaches nominated post each victory which photo would go on the wall. The image would be either of a player who made a great contribution to our win or a memorable act during a game which inspired teammates and fans alike.  Fresh after a bye we faced an in form Carlton at Etihad Stadium. The game was a hard grind throughout and we emerged with a 15 point victory. A memorable clash in this game was when the two Captains Hodge and Murphy attacked the ball hard at a centre bounce. Hodge collected the ball and accidentally fractured Murphy’s jaw in the process. Hodgey’s physicality in the second half of this game was outstanding and a major reason why we won the game on a night where we struggled to play our best footy.  Item is made from corflute material, is 600mm wide x 500mm long and is personally signed by Luke Hodge.   These are rare pieces of Hawthorn memorabilia personally signed by players that would be a magnificent treasure for any serious Hawthorn supporter.  Grab your favourite piece of our victorious 2013 season and display it proudly at your home.
