Biography

Originally from Old Trinity Grammarians, where he won the 1976 Woodrow Medal, Chris Hansen was a solid, hard working footballer who gave particularly good value when asked to play a negating role on a tall opposition forward or resting ruckman. Excellent overhead, and powerful, he was hard to beat one on one, and teamed well with his fellow backmen. He spent the majority of his VFL career with Fitzroy, where he played 101 games and kicked 17 goals between 1977 and 1982. In 1983 he moved to Footscray and added a final 28 games and 1 goal over the course of that season and the next.
