Another success story of the Bulldogs' VFL program, Will Hayes arrived at the Kennel with pick 78 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft. Hayes capped off an outstanding 2018 VFL season, winning the Footscray Bulldogs’ Best and Fairest. The 23-year old midfielder maintained a consistently high standard of performance in 2018, culminating in selection on the wing in the VFL Team of the Year. He ranked second in the VFL in the same season for total uncontested possessions (16 per game) and third for total inside-50s. After five years of hard work at VFL level, earned an AFL debut in Round 5, 2019 against Carlton. Hayes had two stints in the senior team, playing nine matches - including the Elimination Final against GWS Giants - and impressing with his hard-running work-rate. The 24-year-old midfielder-forward slotted in seamlessly, averaging more than 15 disposals per game in his maiden AFL season.
