Career

A part of the great Glenelg teams of the mid-1980s with players such as Stephen Kernahan, Tony McGuinness and Chris McDermott, Hall was a key element in their 1986 premiership, playing at Centre Half-Forward.[1] Kicking 6 goals in the 1986 Grand Final, he won the Fos Williams Medal as best player, to top off a season where he was Glenelg's leading goalkicker (73 goals).

Hall was recruited by Hawthorn, in the more lucrative VFL competition, for the 1988 season. He played in all 24 games that year, including a grand final win for Hawthorn. Hall was also an All-Australian in 1988. He played in another premiership with Hawthorn in 1991.

In 1994, Hall returned to Adelaide, joining the Adelaide Football Club for their fourth season in the AFL. In the twilight of his playing career, Hall managed only 17 games in the two seasons he played for Adelaide.[1]

Hall kicked a near impossible goal in a State of Origin game against Victoria from a forward pocket and as a result the pocket is still known to locals as the "Tony Hall Pocket"
