No limits for evergreen Hodge

With another year to run on his contract, there are no signs of slowing down for Lions veteran Luke Hodge.

The four-time Premiership player is contracted for one more year in Brisbane, but that doesn’t mean more time in the coaches’ box than on the field.

Lions assistant coach Danny Daly told Macquarie Sports Radio the club won’t put any limits on the number of games Hodge might play next season.

“He’s an extension of the coaching group on the field,” Daly told Macquarie Sports Radio‘s Cam Reddin.

Hodge will be 35 next season. He has played 17 games out of a possible 21 so far this year.

Daly expects Hodge to play as many games as he can in 2019.

“I don’t think he’ll put any limits on how many games he plays next year,” Daly said.

“At the start of this year we were talking about 15 or 16 games and a couple of rests. But his body’s handled it very well this year,” he said.
