Former St. Kilda captain Danny Frawley has said Melbourne should think about moving Jesse Hogan to defence should he remain at the club.

Speaking on SEN, Frawley said he thinks Hogan has the attributes to be a good defender and believes the Demons will think about the change.

“It can be done (Hogan playing in defence),” Frawley said.

“He’s got all the attributes to play as a defender, but as you saw in the Grand Final with Jack Darling and Josh Kennedy, they don’t fall off trees.

“Melbourne had a good chemistry when Hogan got injured. They would fit him in there, but with Sam Weideman, Christian Petracca and Tom McDonald, they just seemed to have a really good synergy up there with their smalls.

“There’s no doubt their Achilles heel, and all due respect to Sam Frost and Oscar McDonald, their Achilles heel is their key defensive posts.

“There’s no doubt that Melbourne would look at Hogan if he does stay.

It is unclear if Hogan will be at the Demons next year as Fremantle circle for the young star.
