"A much-loved figure in Victorian and Australian cricket, Hassett was a very fine right-hand batsman with a superb technique.
Few cricketers have done as much to boost Australia's reputation for sportsmanship and, although his sense of humour
tended to distract attention, he had excellent leadership skills.
Hassett was also a fine footballer for Geelong in the amateurs, winning the JN Woodrow Medal for the best and fairest
player in A section in 1935 and 1936."
