Hawthorn signs its second
Irish rookie in 12 months after luring emerging Gaelic football and rugby star Conor Nash to Waverley.
The Hawks have been circling Nash for some time and the talented Irishman has finally joined the club.
The youngster, who hails from Navin about 45 minutes north-west of Dublin, will link up with the Hawks when pre-season training begins next month.
Blessed with height, pace and natural athleticism, Nash is set to learn AFL craft as a key defender.
"I'll learn the trade there hopefully and then they'll maybe look later down the line a bit more forward," Nash said.
"Key back, especially having the rugby background with tackling and stuff like that, should be all right."
