Career highlights

A tagger, Hassall played at Collingwood mostly in the back pocket or midfield and received a 1994 AFL Rising Star nomination for his efforts against Geelong late in his debut season.[1] He played 23 games that year, including a qualifying final and had 353 disposals. Hassall, who was originally from Warrandyte, added a further 19 games in 1995. With Collingwood having a poor season in 1996 and Hassall managing just eight games, he was let go by the club and picked up by Hawthorn in the pre-season draft.

He spent three seasons with Hawthorn and ended the 1998 AFL season well with three Brownlow Medal votes for his performance against Fremantle in the final round.[2] Hassall was delisted a year later but kept playing football in the Essendon District Football League after a stint at the South Adelaide Football Club.

Hassall now trains thoroughbred racehorses with partner Kate Goodrich in Kilmore, Victoria.[3]
