Eric Hipwood responds to comparisons with Buddy
Eric Hipwood is one of the most exciting prospects in the AFL.
The Brisbane forward has the talent, the energy, and the hair to become a genuine cult figure.
But don’t think he’s letting early comparisons with Swans megastar Lance Franklin get to his head.
“I guess if you’re athletic and a left-footed forward that’s the comparison,” Hipwood told 3AW after the Lions’ 30-point win over Carlton.
“I don’t look too much into it.”
Hipwood said he modelled his game more on Nick Riewoldt and Jonathan Brown.
