THEY say they’re nothing special, but ask anyone else at Lavington about the Hargreave brothers and expect to get a far different response.

While the arrival of star forwards Adam Prior and Justin Koschitzke has been seen as the big reason behind the Panthers’ climb up the ladder this year, it’s the emergence of the likes of Tom and Sam Hargreave that has proven equally telling.

Tom, in particular, has been a bolt from the blue.

The goalkicking midfielder enters tomorrow’s clash with Yarrawonga in white-hot form and is considered by those in the know to be firmly in the frame to capture Lavington’s best and fairest award this year.

Just don’t ask him about it.

“I’m not doing anything 

special, I don’t reckon,” Tom, 20, said yesterday.

“I just try and play my role like everyone else in the side.

“We’re all playing for each other.”

Sam, 21, won plenty of fans for his tagging job on Morris Medal fancy Brayden O’Hara last month and will have one of 

Yarrawonga’s midfield stars firmly in his sights tomorrow.

And if one Hargreave isn’t enough, Tom said he’d be more than happy to help his older brother.

“Sam has really stood up this year,” Tom said.

“Because of the role he plays, he’s always getting into scuffles and is a bit known for it.”

Tom said the Panthers were expecting a fierce challenge at home from the reigning premier.
