Q&A with Jon Harmey (2019 runner up) – Ep. 335

PODCAST: The coach of Hirdy’s Heroes chats Fantasy and answers your questions.

In 2019, Jon Harmey was in cracking AFL Fantasy form. Backing up from the No.6 hat he won in 2017, the Essendon supporter took his team Hirdy’s Heroes to the top of the overall rankings after the byes and sat there until round 23. Well, at least until the start of the final round as in some amazing scenes, Craig Wegener overtook Harmey’s team to be crowned the 2019 champion.
