Kyle Hartigan Biography

Wednesday, 7 September 2022
Hawthorn delist Kyle Hartigan after 22 games in two seasons at the Hawks.

"Kyle has been a great leader and competitor during his time at the club, and has had a strong influence on our group both on and off the field," Hawthorn National Recruiting and List Manager Mark McKenzie said in a statement.

"We thank Kyle for his service, and we wish him and his family all the best in his future endeavours."

Kyle Hartigan is officially now a Hawk, crossing from Adelaide to Hawthorn for a future fourth-round selection.

"The main reason in bringing him in is to obviously bolster the depth at the key defender position which he has played for a long period of time now at the Crows," Hawthorn footy boss Graham Wright told the club's podcast.

"The Crows had offered him a deal as well, but his push was to get back to Victoria where he and his wife are from originally."

Kyle Hartigan and Billy Frampton are separated by teammates after a scuffle at training.

Vision emerged of Hartigan throwing several punches at Frampton while the pair were playing on opposing sides of an intraclub match at West Lakes. Frampton appears to bump Hartigan after a goal before they engaged in a wrestle that required assistances from several players.

“He was holding me a little bit. I just gave him a little one in the guts and it just picked up from there,” Frampton explained.

“It turns into a bit of a blur when that stuff happens, but it was 10-15 seconds maybe and the boys broke it up. Nicksy called us up in front of the group after and we had a bit of a laugh about it, explained what happened and shook hands about it.”

Kyle Hartigan will be limited for a least a couple of weeks after an ankle cleanout.

"Kyle was experiencing lateral ankle pain during specific changes in direction at training," Crows head of science and medicine services Steve Saunders said.

"The surgery involved the removal of old scar tissue and a joint wash-out.

"Kyle's running will be limited for the next two weeks. However, he has had a seamless off-season and pre-season to date, so he is well-placed to be available for selected trial games in preparation for round one."

Monday, 22 May 2017
Kyle Hartigan signs a three-year contract extension to remain at the Crows until the end of 2020.

"I'm loving this footy club and they gave me the opportunity to play AFL footy so I didn't really have much hesitation at all to sign on," Hartigan said.

"We have got a really good group and I have got really good relationships here with the players and coaches.

"The future is pretty bright at the footy club, we have got success on the horizon."

Tuesday, 12 July 2016
Levi Casboult is suspended for a 'tummy tap' after the Match Review Panel handed him a one-match ban for striking Adelaide's Kyle Hartigan.

In a verdict that will put all players on notice, Casboult's punch to the stomach of his opponent was graded as intentional conduct with medium impact to the body.

It underlines a willingness from the MRP to come down harder on players for such strikes after the issuing of $1000 fines failed to deter them from blatantly punching opponents.

Tuesday, 1 September 2015
Adelaide re-signs Kyle Hartigan for two years, tying him to West Lakes until the end of the 2017 season.

"I am really enjoying playing with a developing young backline and with some hard work I think team success is just around the corner," Hartigan said.

Wednesday, 23 April 2014
Kyle Hartigan credits his solid early season form to mentoring from Crows senior recruits James Podsiadly and Eddie Betts.

"'Pods' has been a great mentor, he's been around for a long time – I sit down and do my edits (game review) with 'Pods' every week and he goes through and gives me the forward's aspect of my positioning," Hartigan said.

"I know for Luke Brown, Rory Laird over the pre-season coming to training and playing on Eddie Betts, one of the best small forwards in the game, every training session gives you every confidence when you go out and play.

"Them coming into the club and passing on their knowledge and being able to play on the good players has really benefited our group."

Wednesday, 29 January 2014
Kyle Hartigan says he is learning his craft as a defender from veteran Crow Ben Rutten.

"I just need to focus on learning as much as I can from 'Truck'. [I don't need to] wrestle it away from him or anything like that, I just need to play good footy and what happens will happen," Hartigan said.

"Ben's been around for a long time, he's got a wealth of experience so if I can learn half of what he knows while he's still here, that'll be really good for me."

Saturday, 27 July 2013
Kyle Hartigan makes his AFL debut for Adelaide with 19 disposals (10 kicks and 9 handballs), 7 marks and a tackle in a 22-point loss to Fremantle.
