Breust, Smith talk country roots, new-look Hawks

They say you can take the boy out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the boy.

That’s certainly the case for Hawthorn’s Luke Breust and Isaac Smith who, after years living in the hustle and bustle of suburban Melbourne, still continue to seek haven in the outdoors — particularly on the golf course.

Presented by MoleMap, Breust and Smith gathered at Riversdale Golf Club in Melbourne’s east for a quick hit and a chat about the off-season changes at the Hawks, growing up in the country, and their new captain’s recent battle with skin cancer.

MoleMap is an organisation raising awareness for skin checks and is the number one choice for skin cancer detection for over 250,000 patients.

With two out of three Australians getting skin cancer in their lifetime, early detection is vital and can save your life.

While they’re in competition during winter, Breust and Smith are on the cusp of completing another pre-season in the harsh Australian sun and are also regular golfers during the summer off-season.

In the final part of MoleMap’s three-part series, Breust and Smith reflect on the influx of new faces at the club and how Jarryd Roughead handled his cancer fight.
