Lachie Bramble recently joined Talking Hawks to discuss his time at Hawthorn, the Hawthorn’s speedy backman’s ability to play various roles in the side, and the players showing training the house down so far this pre-season.
Lachie discussed how important Hawthorn development coach Andy Collins has been in his journey to the AFL and how Collo was the one who suggested Lachie would be a good fit at Hawthorn for his blistering speed and ability to break lines.
He spoke about the some specific changes to training so far under new High Performance Manager, Peter Burge, introducing a higher importance on speed training, which is complementing the game plan and approach that the Hawthorn team has been taking under Sam Mitchell.
He discussed how the new training program has seen a renewed enthusiasm and hunger in the team, as all the players are learning a new system together and spurring each other onto success.
Lachie discussed how impressed he has been with the way players have stepped up as leaders at the club since the departure of Big Boy at the end of 2022 and spoke highly of both James Sicily and Karl Amon in terms of their ability to set high expectations and drive standards in the developing team.
Listen to the full interview to hear more about Lachie’s career, which injured Hawk has hit the ground with a return to his best footy and the team’s preseason leading into the round one clash against Essendon at the MCG.
