Hard working, energetic and combative, the somewhat unfortunately-named Stuart Stewart was one of the best and most consistent players to represent Hawthorn during that club's inaugural decade in the VFL. Equally at home across half back or in the ruck, Stewart was particularly renowned for his ability to bring down sometimes prodigiously high-flying marks seemingly regardless of the risk. He was a regular VFL representative player, and played a total of 130 senior games for the Mayblooms between 1926 and 1935.
