East Wagga-Kooringal ruckman Nick Hull rates his 2018 season up there with the best he has produced.
The 25-year-old won his second Gerald Clear Medal on Wednesday night, polling 29 votes to win by eight.
Hull was stoked to claim the medal for the second time in three years.
“It feels good. I really put in hard over the off-season this year. The body’s feeling good so good to come away with a win, a bit of reward for effort, feels good,” Hull said.
“I thought I was probably a better chance this year than the first year that I won it but I thought it would be a lot closer and there was a lot more contenders this year.”
Hull was happy with most of his season.
“I thought it was pretty good. I started the first half of the year probably the best I’ve played, I sort of had a bit of a dull patch through the middle of the year but tried to finish strong and unfortunately couldn’t do much in finals but that happens,” he said.
Hull has already re-signed at EWK for next year and is looking forward to building on this year’s first semi-final departure.
“I’m keen as to stay on with the Hawkies. Everyone’s back on board so we’ll be definitely looking to be on the up next year,” he said.
