Game Summary

The circumstances are much different to when Geelong (3-0) and Hawthorn (0-3) met in last year’s qualifying final. The Cats started their rebuild several years ago and missed the finals in 2015 – a fate the Hawks appear to be staring down the barrel at – but are already back contending again. Geelong may have unearthed another star in the form of round three NAB AFL Rising Star nominee Brandan Parfitt, but its season fortunes are resting most on ‘Dangerwood’ and reborn forward Daniel Menzel. The immediate future is not so bright for Hawthorn, with a litany of premiership stars, such as Josh Gibson, Jack Gunston and Shaun Burgoyne, struggling to recapture their best. Boom recruit Jaeger O’Meara is also taking time in his return to the game after multiple knee injuries, but ex- Swan Tom Mitchell and Adelaide newcomer Ricky Henderson have bucked the trend.

    1. It will be interesting how the Hawks function with a small forward line. Not that it matters when they can’t win the ball in the centre!

      1. Yep, KPP from a bottom side. No thanks. I knew they wouldn’t be top 4, I knew he was going to be a tad down, but this is just ridiculous.

    1. Looking through my various leagues, I’m seeing a lot of sub-2000 scores. The best ones are mid-2100s, and they are few and far between. Before any final scaling, I’ve scored 2073 for the round; this is well down on my usual average, but given that this has been such a low-scoring round in general, I’m not worried – at worst, my ranking should stay about where it is.

    1. Didn’t let me and my vc on Dahl down.

      He can’t get 130+ every week. Be grateful that he does most weeks.

      There are no certainties in supercoach. Even spuds like Zac Dawson put in the occasional good game.

  6. So glad that was over.
    Going to be a tough year for us Hawks supporters who have been blessed with much success over recent years.
    It’s time to repay the faith for as long as it takes.
    Well played Geelong.
