The biggest difference Isaac Smith has noticed between Hawthorn and Geelong
Isaac Smith is yet to play his first game for the Cats, but the three-time premiership player has already noticed one big difference between Geelong and his former club, Hawthorn.
It’s the difference in physical characteristics that has struck him most.
“Geelong … they were always big, physical,” he told Sportsday.
“They obviously had probably a bigger emphasis on power, compared to my time at Hawthorn where we were very successful and had a lot of aerobic athletes.
“Obviously Hawthorn had the fortune of playing at the MCG every week, where you had big open spaces.
“Geelong … it’s a skinnier ground where power and strength probably win out more often than not.”
