2018, July 26, West Australian, Story and photos “Shades of Hodge as Hardisty inspires Tigers ” and photo of Jared Hardisty the tackling machine tackling Tommy Sheridan early in the season and also one of him winning possession against Peel.  Claremont tackling machine Jared Hardisty  has set himself to play in the image of his former captain Luke Hodge when their Tigers attempt to exploit the boggy conditions at Claremont Oval tomorrow. Hardisty was a rookie in Hawthorn’s 2015 premiership season and while he was disappointed to be cut after just one year, he is now starting to reap the benefits of his apprenticeship alongside some of football’s greatest modern midfielders.
