Height: 189cm

Weight: 88kg

Position: Midfielder

Recruited from: Harvey Brunswick Leschenault/Peel Thunder

The bullocking inside midfielder joins close friend and surfing buddy Reuben Ginbey in the blue and gold after an impressive draft year playing for Peel Thunder and Western Australia at the under-18 championships. Strong-bodied and competitive, Hall’s workrate is unquestionable. He went head-to-head with No.1 draft pick Harley Reid and held his own during the state carnival, while also producing a 33-disposal, nine-clearance and seven-inside-50 performance against South Australia in a best afield effort. The son of former West Coast forward Derek, who played two games for the Eagles in 1993 before moving to Geelong, Hall averaged 18.6 disposals in nine games for the Thunder’s League team this season. Hall was named in the under-18s All-Australian team – the only player not from the successful Allies outfit to be picked in the midfield.
