Chance is recognised as one of the hardest running mid-fielders in the AFL and is able to run the opposition off their legs with his blistering speed, huge engine and uncanny evasiveness.
Having played 21 games in 2007, he provided the Hawks with plenty of speed and drive from the midfield, clearly showing his versatility and brilliance as well as his exceptional delivery into the forward line.
With his 100th game looming in 2008, Chance's leadership experience, as well as his class and tough body in this young and talented Hawthorn side has proved extremely valuable throughout the season.
In 2006, Chances’s electrifying pace and silky smooth skills impressed the International selectors and he was chosen for International duties to play against Ireland in the prestigious International Rules Series. The quick and aggressive midfielder has established himself as a key player in the league and in particular, the Hawthorn Football Club.
Season 2008 was positive for both Chance and the club as they both dominated and devastated the opposition with their attacking style of play. Chance averaged just over 20 disposals a game, but more importantly it was his ball use which made him game breaking. Chance symbolised the Hawks season which ended in ultimate success as he and the team had a 'never say die' attitude.
Chance is based in Melbourne and is available for appearances and Q&A.
