Game Chat – Carlton v Hawthorn

Written by Father Dougal on July 22 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Sunday, July 22, 1.10pm AEST

SUMMARY
Hawthorn’s fading finals hopes rest on securing victory against a depleted Carlton outfit on Sunday. A shock loss to the Lions in Launceston leaves the Hawks outside of the eight on percentage, though they will fancy their chances against a Blues team with just one win for the year. Tom Mitchell will go head-to-head with Patrick Cripps in a meeting of the game’s best ball winners, while Carlton will have its hands full dealing with Luke Breust. The Blues have struggled defending small forwards all year, with Breust among the game’s best. An injury to James Sicily also robs the game of a potential match-up with either Charlie Curnow or Harry McKay, who have been bright spots in an otherwise disappointing year for Carlton. The Hawks have won 14 of their past 15 against the Blues, expect that record to continue.

LAST FIVE TIMES
Rd 22, 2017: Carlton 12.5 (77) d Hawthorn 10.10 (70) at Etihad Stadium
Rd 19, 2016: Hawthorn 10.14 (74) d Carlton 7.13 (55) at University of Tasmania Stadium
Rd 23, 2015: Hawthorn 17.11 (113) d Carlton 8.8 (56) at the MCG
Rd 17, 2015: Hawthorn 27.11 (173) d Carlton 4.11 (35) at Etihad Stadium
Rd 13, 2014: Hawthorn 18.10 (118) d Carlton 13.12 (90) at the MCG 

FD’s Tip:  Sanity says the Hawks will crush the Blues. I have a feeling, that I am sooo not going to put money on, that the Blues will join the Suns and surprise this week. But, sticking to Hawks by 20.

  1. Not sure if anyone is at the game/watching to confirm, just heard on the radio that Curno is tagging Smith on the outside run & Howe is tagging Cripps & in trouble for belting him in the first minute of the game?

    In the car coming back from Vic country!

      1. I can not understand how Bolton plays Curnow on Smith and SPS on Titch, it just didn’t make sense to me. If he doesn’t change it Titch will get 50 possies and score 150+ with ease. It will benefit all who took the gamble and not take Danger’s score

          1. On the radio it was starting to sound like there was seriously 2 Mitchell’s playing, that really surprises me of Bolton!

            Surely the second 1/2 there needs to be a change!

    1. yep , Howe will get @ least a week
      interestingly , no umpires called the free kick
      which was 40 out & may have given the Blues the 1st goal
      just as Dustys soft free that gave the Tigers the 1st goal V the Saints
      more often than not
      umpiring mistakes against the underdog team early can set the tone for a thumping ..

    1. Gee PJ,

      If that was a king hit, I’m not sure what they’d call what I experienced / witnessed for 15 years in the DVFL 😉

      Still in saying that, pretty poor form on Howe’s behalf!

      1. An unprovoked punch in the jaw to a player that wasn’t expecting it
        off the ball
        Suppose I could have called it a cowards punch
