After being drafted by Hawthorn, Will Day says the Hawks, where his grandfather Robert played in the 1971 flag, was his preferred club but that there was little in the way of communication in the lead up to the draft.

"Having grandpa playing there and then also coming to Victoria and being in the home of football was the preference."
