Former Hawthorn captain Luke Hodge speaks out on allegations of racism against Hawks

Former Hawthorn captain Luke Hodge says he has never heard of any of the “terrible stuff” alleged by former Indigenous Hawks players after bombshell claims were aired about the club on Wednesday.

The ABC reported that three Indigenous families involved at Hawthorn during former coach Alastair Clarkson’s reign from 2005 to 2021 allege they were bullied while at the club, with one player claiming he was told to “get rid of my unborn child and my partner”.

Hodge, who played 305 games for the Hawks and captained them to three premierships, said the article was “a tough read”.
