Game Chat – West Coast v Hawthorn

Written by Father Dougal on August 16 2020

Where and When: Optus Stadium, Wednesday 12 August at 6:10pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Hawthorn 16.9 (105) def West Coast 9.13 (67) Round 23, 2019.

What does it mean for Hawthorn: A change to mess up their draft by winning.
What does it mean for West Coast: A win helps their bid to end up top 4.

Supercoach Watch Hawks:  Mitchel Sicily Wingard, Day
Supercoach Watch Eagles:  Gaff, Kelly, Sheed, Yeo, Shuey
Father Dougal Watch:  Nic Nat! Many have brought him in and he’s been getting more time on ground. Could go big. It’s hard not to barrack for Nic Nat even not owning him. But still, his non owners would be happy if he keeps it under a ton. Good luck with that.

Father Dougal’s Tip: Eagles by 20. No reason to think the Hawks will fix things vs the Eagles.

  1. Take Neales 134 as VC (loophole) and Mcphersons 41 or throw Capt on Nic Nat and put Will Day on field? Brander was my loophole, so have to reassess!!!


  2. Another example of holding trades till game time, was considering bringing him in for D.Smith , took Zorko instead as I knew he was playing. That’s one thing right for the year!!


  3. Was going to take a donut up forward with Dev Smith out, put Brander on field in the off chance he would be a late in and sometimes you get lucky. Likely he will only put up 12 or so points now but hey its better than 0


  4. Good to see my boys Wingard and Sic playing well to start :(. Praying my new recruit Nic Nat and the ever reliable Mitchell can carry them to something respectable and not ruin a great sunday for me


  5. Does anyone else find it peculiar that prior to today’s game, Naitanui had taken only 3 marks for the entire season?
    An average of 0.3 marks per game!
    It seems weird that a gun big bloke as athletic as NicNat does not mark.


  6. Starting to feel better for not owning Sicily. Sits close to my never again list, due to this exact situation he is in, as well as becoming a key forward.
    I just find it hard to a good reason to bring him in, when he can have absolutely shocker games


    1. He is the third highest averaging defender coming into this round. Yes he can put in bad games but you should never rule someone out (unless they are consistently injured)


      1. If Clarko finally leaves Hawks, Sicily will come more into thought, I just don’t like inconsistent players. Yeo-Yeo is another example of who I ignore. If Sicily was just set in his role every week, then sure. But seeing this forward switch occuring, is just too off putting for me.

    1. hawks still pretty good considering they haven’t had a top draft pick in a decade
      clarko should drop every player with a niggle for the rest of the year
