Game Chat – Geelong vs Hawthorn

2QF, 2016, Geelong 12.13 (85) d Hawthorn 12.11 (83) at the MCG
R1, 2016, Geelong 18.8 (116) d Hawthorn 12.14 (86) at the MCG
R20, 2015, Hawthorn 19.7 (121) d Geelong 12.13 (85) at the MCG
R1, 2015, Hawthorn 17.21 (123) d Geelong 8.13 (61) at the MCG

Game notes: After spending the whole week on the Gold Coast, third-placed Geelong returns to more familiar surrounds having easily accounted for the Brisbane Lions by 85 points. Hawthorn, meanwhile, is fresh from a pulsating draw with Greater Western Sydney in Launceston, just a week after the Cats themselves couldn’t be separated with the premiership fancies. Midfield generals Patrick Dangerfield and Tom Mitchell will be worth the price of admission alone, with the latter setting a new record last week when he became the first player to collect 30 or more touches in 12 successive games. While the Cats will start favourites in Saturday’s clash, the 13th-placed Hawks will be fighting to remain in the finals hunt and have the potential to cause a major headache, as they honour former skipper and club great Luke Hodge in his 300-game milestone.

Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 12 points.

  1. Selwood and Mackie late outs, replaced by simpson and zach guthrie.

    That’s more like the SC gods I know.. although it is scott and not joel at least.


  2. Danger in the rooms. Very similar to what happend to Cripps! Not looking good

    EDIT: Just appeared again and doing some running on the sidelines. Hopefully good to go soon


  3. Danger is back out there , but limping and unlikely to see out the day. Also would not be surprised if he has structural damage to his foot. #BeVeryAlarmed.
    Mitchell 19 disposals in the 1st qtr.

  5. Well, this complicates things. I might have to hold off on that last trade until I know what Dangerfield’s prognosis is.


      1. I’m a Hawks’ man, Bob, but I haven’t seen any dodgy ones for him. He’s keeping the Cats in the match.


        1. It’s just the inconsistency. For example the down field free quick for Heatherley’s late bump on Danger but 3 minutes later same thing happens to Heatherley but no free kick.
          It’s the ones he gets that noone else does not the ones he gets but shouldn’t get. #endrant


  6. One legged danger still better than most players on the field. I don’t mean to complain about the umpires but can they stop making stupid decisions that are influencing the game! Even the commentators are saying it!


    1. He went to kardinia park, saw that it was a home game…

      But he’s driven there now and will be available for the second half.

    1. His still had 17 touches but has been impacted by 6 clangers (including a few 50’s and free against) and only 58% efficiency


    2. Yes he’s being tagged but it’s actually his clangers, some from fighting with Roughie and Howe, that are costing him. He’s had 17 possessions so his score should be between 40 and 50.


  8. Held onto parsons instead of upgrading him to macrae/heeney as I thought he had some money to make with the 99 in his 3 round average.
    He will be lucky to make his be of 27


  9. Commentators wanted Danger VS Hodge. They got it. Danger came out on top. Ryan Burton has just gone to Danger (not that it really matters) 127 at 3 QTR time. Keep going Danger!


  10. Leave for uni, captain danger is down and off the field, come back from uni and he has 5.5 and has 130 at 3qtr time.

  12. WHAT AN ENDING! GO THE CATS! Smith with a chance just before the siren and misses 😮 Traditional Geelong VS Hawks Thriller! Hodge lifted at the end as well like a champion.


  13. Danger saying after the game he has a very sore foot. But its danger he will be right for next week hopefully.

  14. Wow. Dangerfield. Wow!!! Wow!!! Wow!!! My friend was always sad I never saw Gaz or some of the greats in their ‘Brownlow’ prime years because I didn’t know this sport existed until 3 or so years ago. Thankfully I’m growing up with Danger to watch and learn from! He is incredible! So smart the way he plays and what a heart!


  15. Gutted as a Hawks man in Hodgeys 300th. When Dangerfield took that grappling mark in the 2nd quarter it looked a little ominous, when he started just getting clean 1v1s for about half an hour straight I knew he was going to pinch that game from us. Gutted to lose like that again even if it means my SC is looking very good.
