Goodbye legend

All going well, Tasmania will have a last chance to farewell Hawthorn veteran Luke Hodge who's announced he is retiring at season's end.

Assuming he's fit, the 33 year old will be in action with the team at Launceston's UTAS stadium on Sunday the 13 of August against North Melbourne.

Hodge told a press conference there was no point trying to hide his decision.

"I knew that you guys were going to ask questions about the future and for me to sit here and say I haven't made a decision would have been lying and us footballers don't lie to the media as you know."

Hodge, who's due to play his 300th game on Saturday when the Hawks take on Geelong at the MCG, has expressed how he mostly has no regrets about his career.

"There are certain things that you would have liked to not happen, but I'm a big believer if you make a mistake, you learn from your mistakes. If you went through life, if you went through a career and you've made no mistakes, I reckon it'd be a pretty boring career or life."
