  1. Keen to see who tries to fill the Mitchel hole.

    Bit of a chance for Archie Smith in the ruck for Brisbane with Martin out.
    Going up against Pittonet is going to provide a good gauge to see where he is at.

    I think Lyons signing with Brisbane will be a big plus. Has been very much in the shadow of Neale’s arrival.

    Anyone tipping the lions to make the top 8 this year?


    1. I have them very close to the 8. Should beat hawthorn comfortably considering hawks lack of senior players and clear best 22’s

      I wouldnt take much from hawthorn today in regards to their midfield structure.

      Will be watching Sicily especially as i dont currently have Laird so will be looking if Sicily will remain in my side or be upgraded.


  2. going to be hard to get any real gauge on hawthorn today with so many names out of the side… I won’t take much from it at all.

    Brisbane will be good though a few names to worth watching.
    Zorko, neale & witherden all playing and SC relevant


  3. It is a Shame because I have Neale, Sicily, Worpel and Witherden in my watchlist but with no credible opposition will have to watch the rookies: Ely Smith and Scimshaw. Early game too , the heat will affect the outcome?


    1. yeah i have worple F3 just warming it as i don’t know who i want yet…
      If he pumps out 100+ today and plays 90% midfield it means nothing with o’meara chad, smith and shiels to come back into midfield rotation… very frustrating!


    1. Would take literally everything in this game with a grain of salt, Hawks have half of their best 22 not playing, so Sicily is probably just plugging some holes.


    2. Don’t like that at all. Straight to laird already considering i don’t have him. Maybe reactionary after half a quarter but there was already talk of Sicily being a swingman. No thanks ill take the safe Laird.


  4. There has been talk of Sicily and Gunston switching ends regularly This preseason. Not a fan of it to say the least. At least Fagan has come to his senses and has left Andrews back.


    1. Andrews may be sitting back as Brisbane wait for Adams to get to back from injury. Adams may slot into Andrews position so he can then go forward. Won’t know about this until the season starts sadly


  5. I’m not overly worried..
    Clarko just giving sicily a taste of forward and experimenting.
    Look who the hawks have out he is just filling the hole gunston bruest and co have left. come the H&A season he is back in defence.. Far to valuable down there.

    Firmly locked as my D1


    1. Their starting defence today
      B: Impey, Mohr, Brand
      HB: Scrimshaw, O’Brien, Mirra

      No Stratton, Burgoyne, Henderson, Frawley, Hardwick…

      Just as many holes in defence today. Sicily has played plenty of forward before – he doesn’t need a ‘taste’. It’s a concern until there’s proof he’ll be a defender.


  6. There have been articles he will swing forward at times swapping with gunston.
    I believe this will happen but only for periods of a game not for full games.
    Clarko will just be seeing how he handles JLT1 as the go to option today.
    It’s been a while since he played forward he has grown and matured alot since then. He will be a defender 90% of the games in the H&A season imo.
    His one of if not the the most damaging defender in the league.


    1. Considering i’ve had him 3/4 of the pre season i can’t blame you for wanting to start him. However for me i’m more confident that i know what i’m going to get from a Laird or Lloyd. Sicily can afford to be an upgrade target if we aren’t 100% sure on his role. Especially since he has the round 12 bye he is the perfect upgrade target come round 13.

      JLT 2 will hopefully provide some more clarity. In saying this even if he does play forward his shown he knows how to find the goals. If i already had Laird id keep him. Might come down to Sicily vs Whitfield for D2 for me.


  7. McCarthy has been having a great game and might get some coaches jump on him at his price. 248k with 1% owning him at the moment, his move from Geelong will give him more time and better chances.
    17 disposals, 5 contested, 71% Efficiency , 4 marks, 8 tackles, 2 goals and 8 score involvements. This was from 78% TOG and he finished with 105 SC points before scaling. If he can do something similar next week he will be hot property

  9. Add these to the missing Hawks today ….. McEvoy, Puopolo, Hardwick, Roughead & to a lesser extent Schoenmakers!

    Seriously happy with Cousins, Worpel, Jones, O’Brien, Nash, Hanrahan, Golds, Miles, Scrimshaw & Morrison today …. all did really well & played their role!

    The depth at the Hawks is building, I like it 🙂


    1. It’s been nothing more than a probables v possibles match.
      Please don’t take Neale and Sicily seriously today.
