Game Chat – Hawthorn vs Brisbane

Written by Thommo on July 14 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: University of Tasmania Saturday, July 14, 1.45pm AEST

SUMMARY

Surely a missed fixturing opportunity by the AFL here by not having Luke Hodge return to the MCG to take on the Hawks in front of 40,000 fans who used to idolise him. Still, the former Hawks skipper seemed to enjoy beating his former team when the sides clashed earlier this year at the Gabba, and the Hawks will be desperate to regain the bragging rights. The Lions like to keep the scoreboard ticking and in Eric Hipwood have one of the form forwards of the competition, so it will be a big test for the Hawk defenders, who have been in good nick themselves. Hawthorn kicked a season-high 123 points last week and if it means their forward line has finally clicked into gear then a return to the finals becomes a distinct chance. Alastair Clarkson’s men can smell September and should get the job done at their beloved second home in their last Launceston game for 2018.

LAST FIVE TIMES

R9, 2018, Brisbane Lions 20.9 (129) d Hawthorn 11.7 (73) at the Gabba
R8, 2017, Hawthorn 17.11 (113) d Brisbane Lions 11.9 (75) at University of Tasmania Stadium
R10, 2016, Hawthorn 21.9 (135) d Brisbane Lions 13.9 (87) at the Gabba
R22, 2015, Hawthorn 21.8 (134) d Brisbane Lions 9.8 (62) at University of Tasmania Stadium
R1, 2014, Hawthorn 21.13 (139) d Brisbane Lions 13.13 (91) at University of Tasmania Stadium

Thommo’s Tip:  Hawks by 18 points

  1. Sorry to see the general as a late out!

    Redemption time Hawks for the insipid effort you put in 9 weeks ago against this up & coming team of the future!

    Go the mighty Hawks 🙂

    1. Mitchell absolutely everywhere in that first quarter, 14 disposals, 5 tackles and 1 goal for 75 SC points! Don’t despair PJ

  3. putting faith in Stef as my VC since McEvoy is out injured. Should dominate the ruck against Ceglar.

    1. Nato.

      Steph is gaining on Titch.

      Going to be some huge captains scores this week.

      I’m happy taking Cripps 156 after missing Dangers 158.

      Got a feeling Gawn might go big as well.

      Top scorer this round could go 3000+

  4. I’m usually pretty sceptical with how Mitchells touches impact games, but the 24 touches he’s had in a quater and a half have been very very good!

  5. Thought Cripps 156 would be pretty safe this weekend. Sc gods had other plans. The opposition in 2 leagues have the c on Mitchell. Just when u think it’s safe

  6. Happy with my VC Stef and his 75 at half, it ain’t the same as Titch and his 110, but I didn’t expect him run around without Berry on him

  7. Mitchell half time SC score….

  8. Coaches are certainly a breed. Fagan has two taggers in his team in Robinson and Berry, and decides not to tag one of the great ball-winners in AFL history. Stupid.

    No, I don’t have Mitchell as VC. I’m not salty, you’re salty.

    1. Lots of coaches do not tag him as they believe, wrongly or rightly that his high possessions counts do not always hurt the opposition. In my team so I do care.

  9. Stef with a big 142, could of picked Danger, Cripps, Titch all with 150+ but my faith paid off. Not as big as them but cannot complain at a 142.
    Just need Gawn to have an average game of 115-120 to give my opponent some thoughts whether to make him captain. Get me right back in my match up

    1. With Big Boy out, it made sense. Well done Nato.

      This Brisbane side could really be something. I just hope they can keep all the kids together – McCluggage, Rayner, Berry, Witherden and Hipwood are all going to be very, very good players!
