Former Hawthorn speedster Billy Hartung has found a new home at North Melbourne

The Roo's selected Hartung with their last pick (No.77) in tonight's national draft. 

Hartung was surprisingly delisted by the Hawks at the end of the season.

He played 63 games and kicked 27 goals in his four seasons in brown and gold.

Hartung was selected with pick No.24 in the 2013 national draft and debuted in 2014. 


Hartung's leg speed and ball use will be a welcome addition at Arden Street.
