Lions take Hugh McCluggage with pick no. 3

November 25, 2016 6:57 PM

Welcome to the Den: Hugh McCluggage Introducing you to our newest Lion, Hugh McCluggage. Check him out in action.

The Brisbane Lions have taken North Ballarat Rebels midfielder Hugh McCluggage at Pick No. 3 in tonight’s NAB AFL National Draft in Sydney.

McCluggage is an elite ball-winner with fantastic foot skills, but his forward-half efficiency makes him a truly special talent.

He can finish with precision both on the run and from set-shots, which led to him booting 25 goals from 12 games in the TAC Cup this season with an average of 27.9 disposals.

HUGH McCLUGGAGE: 186cm/76kg, 3/3/98

  • Vic Country / North Ballarat Rebels
  • Hybrid Mid – Hybrid Forward
  • 2016 AA Midfielder, VC Most valuable Player, Morrish Medal Winner
  • Long running, goal kicking mid – averaging 28p/2.1g per game at TAC Cup level this year.

Looks good Hugh! #AllForOne
