James Hertan - 100 Games
2 JUN | BY LES ARGEN
Congratulations go out to James Hertan on the achievement of 100 games with the Monash Blues this week! Since making his debut in 2008, The Pain Factory has juggled gracing Melbourne’s social pages and a successful mixed netball career with a making a big contribution to the Monash Blues both on and off field.
The Club has fielded enquiries from AFL clubs with Jim’s comprehensive blister prevention stratagem preeminent within the football industry. Jim is well known for running out onto the ground minutes into a quarter as his extensive pre-game routine is consistently poorly timed with the Club considering taking these lost minutes off his total games played.
Big Jim is an absolute stalwart of the Monash Blues, plying his trade strongly in the Clubbies and 3’s over the years, with his talents being recognised with a few seasons of reserves during his prime and captaincy of the Clubbies in 2013 and Runner up in the B&F of that year.
Pain Factory’s versatility is a real asset on gameday – a pillar and leader down back taking intercept clunks, a Dean Cox-esque around-the-ground ruckman or valuable goalkicker leading out from the goal square – he is a great clubman and leader and we hope for many more fantastic years from the #18.
