Hawthorn tipped to swoop for father-son prospect


AFL Media’s draft guru Callum Twomey has tipped Hawthorn to swoop for father-son prospect Finn Maginness.

Maginness, the son of dual premiership Hawk Scott, has caught the eye representing Vic Metro during the NAB Under-18 Championships.

A bid-bodied midfielder who thrives on the contest, Twomey rates the talented teen as an early second-round pick.

“One of the father sons who had a great finish to the Championships last week was Finn Maginness, the son of Scotty McGuiness for the Hawks,” he told SEN Afternoons.

“He had 27 touches with 18 of those contested, nine tackles and seven clearances. That shows the sort of player that he is.

“He’s a big midfielder. I’ve watched him play a lot of footy this year and he’s really improved as the year has gone on.

“I think he’ll go to the Hawks it’s just a matter of where the bid does come for him. I’d say it’s somewhere between that 20-25 range at the moment.”

Hawthorn’s last father-son draftee was Josh Kennedy who was taken with pick No.40 in the 2006 draft.
