Game Notes: Melbourne had a breakthrough victory against Essendon, as it squared its season at 3-3. The Demons overcame the lack of a recognised ruckman against the Bombers, with Cameron Pedersen stepping into the void left by injured big men Max Gawn and Jake Spencer. The Hawks, on the other hand, were thumped by St Kilda by 75 points. Coach Alastair Clarkson warned of “catastrophic change” if the beltings, which have occurred three times this season, continue. A game against former teammate Jordan Lewis should give the Hawks players some incentive to lift. If Melbourne is to be a serious contender for finals this season, this is the sort of game it should win and win handsomely.

Huttabito’s Tip: Melbourne by 40 points

  1. Looking forward to seeing how Pederson goes this week.

    If he backs up last week’s performance as a makeshift ruckman, I have a long-play in mind for him.

  4. Melbourne’s guernsey looks really nice today. They should seriously consider wearing the pink/navy combination full-time.

  5. A match-saving spoil from Roughead at the end should see him get some bonus scaling, on top of his already big score.

  6. Having my rant for the day

    Clayton Oliver, 28 possessions, 14 Contested, 85% DE, 5 Clearances, 4 Tackles for a paltry 89 SC points.

      1. Yeah i know, but when i look at Titch, 64% DE with 6 Clangers scores 109 SC points it winds me up (12 Tackles for Titch must be the difference)

        I’m just spewing because i captained Oliver 🙁

        1. Yeah i think the handballs have a big impact, Oliver had 4 kicks to Titchs 12.
          Was at the game and Titch had more more impact than Oliver

  11. If you want to sum up Hawthorn’s season, one man is it.

    And it ain’t Ty Vickery.

    It’s Liam Shiels.
