Game Chat – Hawthorn vs Brisbane

Written by The Salamander on March 22 2020

Where and when: MCG, Sunday 22 March 2020 • 3:35 PM (AEDT)

Last time they met: Round 19, 2019; Hawthorn 7.18.60 def by Brisbane 13.9.87 at York Park.

What it means for Hawthorn: Not getting shouted at by Clarkson for losing. That can’t be fun.

What it means for Brisbane: After a straight-sets finals exit, the Lions will be desperate to avoid doing a Melbourne, and prove to the world that 2019 wasn’t just a one-off.

The stat: Hawthorn hasn’t beaten Brisbane since 2017.

The match-up: Tom Mitchell vs Lachie Neale

Which ball-magnet will rack up more touches today?

In the spotlight: Tom Mitchell

All eyes will also be on the 2018 Brownlow Medalist’s return after missing all of 2019 with a broken leg.

    1. I’ve got both… if I had to pick one, then Ceglar for the ruck cover. But I expect Petracca to average more.


  1. Devon Robertson a late change, IN for Birchall, so if anyone has him as their loophole Captain, watch out…..


  2. Love how this match in being shown on Fox Sports 1 in America. Drawing in thousands of viewers and seeing their reactions on twitter hahahahaha


  3. top 8 will be interesting this year
    if the next 4 weeks are cancelled , some teams are going to get a much easier run to the finals than others
    might see some low ranked teams playing finals this year


  4. And sadly AFL has been postponed until May 31st…….. Ive spent almost 6 months waiting for AFL Supercoach to return to it be taken away from me after 1 week of games. Months spent planning by many for it to be quite wasteful. What are many going to do now over our weekends????
    This had a big chance to do well over in the US too!!!!!!!


  5. Press conference live now on Fox
    – immediately suspend comp at end of matches
    – ALF womens suspended
    – suspension to May 31
    – review at end of April whether it continues further
    – no premiership for womens AFL
    – decision based on States closing borders
    – all AFL training suspended as well
    – drastic steps to be taken by AFL & clubs to cut costs
    – meeting over next 48 hours
    – need to slow spread of virus
    – most serious threat to the game in 100 years
    – need to get through this together by taking the necessary actions
    – we all have responsibility to the greater community and need to all work together
    – right decision to start the season, but now right decision to stop
    – plan is still to play all remaining 144 games into December if necessary
    – will work with creditors to try and save the competition as much as possible
    – alternative schedule will be forthcoming


      1. if SC stays open, we can still give Wighty a really hard time in the chat thread on the league????!!!!


  6. Shouldn’t have started the season at all, it’s not like the pandemic was ever going to recede. They just teased us for a week. Ugh.


        1. because someone wanted us to talk more to our wives and girlfriends about something other than footy??? *grin* … yeah, actually, why are we being punished??!!!


  7. had to do it
    when you see 15000 selfish young ppl on the news
    standing side by side @ bondi beach on a hot night
    not caring about the sick or elderly
    not doing their part
    the powers that be must to declare some sort of marshal law to protect the vulnerable


    1. I think we can all say it’s those people’s fault.

      As to marshal law, there is no provision under Australian law for its imposition, but no doubt further restrictions are on the way.


  8. starcevich ruining my weekend (well, not as much as other news) – should have taken BZT’s 49…. also missed out on McInerney … on bench
