Season by season

Season by season

After playing the first three games of the season, a fractured thumb put a halt to Nathan Hrovat’s season.

The small forward wasn’t seen back in the senior side until Round 14, but from there, he played every game except for Round 21.

Often found at the feet of North’s key forwards, the pressure Hrovat applied on opposition defenders was invaluable.

2017

In his first year for the club, Hrovat looked a smart acquisition, playing all 22 games for the young Roos side.

His stronger early season form tapered off towards the end of the year, but Hrovat has shown enough to remain an important member of the side in 2018.

Background: Pre-NMFC

 

After being selected with pick in the 2012 National Draft, Hrovat played seven games in his debut season.

A ball-winner, as well as being capable around the goals, Hrovat struggled for opportunity at the Bulldogs.

He managed 30 games in four seasons, but impressed every time he was given a chance at senior level.

Hrovat was traded to North at the end of 2016 and was back to full fitness for the start of pre-season at his new club.
