Hawthorn has signed another international rookie, with Irishman Conor Nash committing to the club.

The Hawks have courted Nash for some time, and have locked in his signature for next season.

"I'm looking forward to pre-season, that's going to be good," he told HawksTV.

The Irishman, who is being courted for a key defensive spot, admits there is a bit of work in front of him.

"The oval ball wasn't too bad because I play rugby and stuff like that, but I suppose positioning and all that will come with a lot of time and a lot of work," he said.

Nash will join another Irish rookie, Conor Glass, on the list.

"It's wonderful to have him there, you can relate different things from Ireland to him," he said.

"He's good craic as well, so it's massive. To have him go before me, being able to see the path before me and the process it takes and how long it takes. I've just been following in his footsteps."
