Hanson carries on strong Tiger tradition

Matthew Hanson will join an exclusive club of Werribee players with multiple state team honours when he runs out for the “Big V” on Saturday, though perhaps not as exclusive as you might think.

The Tigers have a proud history in representative football. Since the state league era begun in 1990, the club has been represented in all but one year (2010), with 29 players earning a total of 43 selection honours over that period.

As a dual representative, Hanson will join names such as Anthony Eames, Donald McDonald, Trent Churchill, Scott Faulkner, Ben Ross, Scott Sherlock, and Jake Wilson, while Michael Frost, Travis Robertson, and James Podsiadly top the honour roll as three-time representatives.

Hanson will run out for the VFL side that takes on the WAFL at 2:10pm on Saturday at North Port Oval in North Melbourne.
