Luke Hodge’s guide to sledging: Hawks champion explains which players he would target for mind games

Four-time flag-winning Hawk Luke Hodge has revealed how he decided which players he would sledge – and why Blues champion Chris Judd was exempt from his verbal sprays.

Last week, Matthew Lloyd and David King slammed Essendon players for allowing Sydney star Luke Parker to openly taunt Dylan Shiel without copping any retribution.

The Swans gun repeatedly shrugged his shoulders and winced after Shiel appeared to pull out of a contest, but Hodge suggested there was nothing wrong with Parker’s behaviour.
