Game Chat – Fremantle vs Hawthorn

Written by Thommo on August 10 2020

When and Where: Optus Stadium, Monday 10 August at 8:40pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 17: Hawthorn 12.12 (84) def Fremantle 8.5 (53) in Launceston.

What it means to Fremantle: While they are technically a chance to make the top 8, this is more a case of a bottom 8 side needing to show something to prove they are improving. After defeating the Pies last week, the Dockers’ fans would be relatively happy, so make that back-to-back wins (especially against a team they rarely defeat) and it will be all the sweeter.

What is means to Hawthorn: The Hawks sucked really badly for weeks before a weird come-from-behind win last week (pre-bye). That win gave them a brief reprieve from the ‘Dad’s army’ jokes but the media will be happy to sink the boot in if they produce more rubbish footy tonight.

Supercoach Watch: There are a few big names playing tonight, none bigger than Nat Fyfe, Tom Mitchell and Caleb Serong. A few unhappy coaches may be holding Wingard, Worpell and the injured Walters.

Thommo Watch: My man-crush was on hiatus early in the season but Tommy Mitchell is starting to earn back my love in recent weeks. Go Tommy!

Thommo’s Tip: This one is tough! If the good Hawks turn up, they might sneak a win but more likely Fremantle by 10 points.

    1. Fyfe to play mainly up Fwd isn’t ideal, and likely in showers too. Titch won’t be doing that at least, so Titch for mine.


  1. I need to pick one of Grundy or Titch for C, and Cameron being named scares me a bit from going on Grundy, especially given the team tactics the Crows could impose on him, which worked against Gawn.

    Thoughts on who I go with?

    T/U – Leave it on Grundy
    T/D – Move it to Titch


  2. Sean Darcy is going to be a player.
    In the game against the Saints he was BOG for the second qtr before he got knocked out.
    Glad to see him doing well.


  3. frost 11 steps & holding the ball = freo goal
    early 1 sided umpiring
    hopefully freo only get the 4 goals from the umps tonight


  4. Wingard rocketing out of the gates with an electrifying 9 points in the first quarter.
    Just wish he would run to the ball instead of away from it


    1. To be honest, we are playing poorly. The non-50m penalty when Conca threw the ball away was ordinary though.


  5. What do non-Hawks people think of Wingard? So far tonight he has pulled out of multiple contests. Soft as butter in my mind.


      1. I can beat that – traded out Zorko at this start of this round, he scored 163, for T Mitchell, who I would love to see match it so I don’t feel so bad….


  6. hr’snot there for his tackling , thats always a bonus
    he’s a running link up/ fwd goal kicker
    replaced brad hill
    like for like & hill won 3 flags


  7. Tell you what my boys are lucky to not be 6 goals down at halftime. Still in it just need to come out of the rooms firing. Frei been all over us


  8. HALF TIME and its the Dockers by 12 points against the Hawks 4.4.28 to 2.4.16

  9. Who is a better pick up this week – thinking for Job Security as well as scoring etc

    TU: Ruscoe -holds his spot this round with a few Pies injuries. Had M/D so could work in with Rivers who I still have (will be trading out Starcevich)

    TD: Schoenberg – also holds his spot in the Crows line up

    Will also be looking at Wicks and/or Bytel next week


  10. For those looking at Fyfe … look carefully, he seems to be favouring that shoulder of his significantly …


      1. at times he was really favouring it and carrying it … he does get some ‘favourable CD scoring’ though too which helps him. At one stage, it looked like he was done for the night, but came back on again …


  11. Geez, this is very un-Hawthorn like … such poor skills and … poor options, panicked possessions … well everything, right across the ground … and against Freo too … they have really fallen off the cliff badly …


  12. Sigh, very tough to watch as a hawker and an owner of 3 hawks players 🙁 My loyalty to my boys always hurts my fantasy team


  13. 3/4 time for anyone still watching sees the Dockers in control 7.4.46 to a disappointing Hawks 2.6.18, Colyer & Smith both done for the night with leg injuries

  14. there goes Sicily’s scoring for the night … has been moved up front and that will halt his scoring … especially the way the Hawks are plahying … they just cant hold or get decent clean possession … and as I type this he takes a big mark!!! hopefully 4 more please!!!


  15. Been meaning to say as well, is Brayshaw a twin?? … he must be, he just seems to be everywhere – all over the ground … one I have just never been able to target sadly …


  16. Full Time – Dockers run out winners by 16 points, which sounds closer than it was.
    Freo 7.6.48 to the Hawks 4.8.32. Hoping my Treloar replacement in Mitchell can finish on 3 figures after scaling…..
