Cale Hooker has established himself as one of the premier key position players in the game. His marking ability is elite and he has proven an effective commodity in both defence and attack. 

Hooker has spent most of his career in defence and was named in the All-Australian side in 2014.

Midway through 2015 he was moved to the forward line where he booted 20 goals in just ten games. His contribution was rewarded with his first Crichton Medal.

Hooker was named Vice-Captain for the 2017 season.
