Round Three Review (Easter Monday)

Written by Dane on April 6 2021

Geelong (10.9.69) defeated Hawthorn (9.10.64)

1. Cameron Guthrie (163). A career day for Guthrie who set career best numbers in the disposal count (43), kicks (20), handballs (23), marks (11), clearances (10) and of course Supercoach score, so yeah, he played pretty well.

2. Jaeger O’Meara (142). Was everywhere with Mitchell being blanketed to lead the Hawks midfield to finish with 34 disposals (17 contested), 5 tackles and 13 clearances.

3. Mark O’Connor (121). As mentioned, he blanketed Mitchell pretty well for the game, while also finding plenty of attacking opportunities himself. His stats of 26 touches, 8 tackles and 8 clearances that led to a career best Supercoach score.

4. Changjuoth Jiath (118). Is locked in for a huge price increase after a 23 disposal, 10 mark game that included his typical attacking play.

5. Mitch Duncan (117). In Duncan’s first game of the season, he essentially ran free in the midfield to pick up 37 touches, 10 marks and over 500 metres gained in an impressive display.

Other 100+ scores:
Jarman Impey (108)

Disappointment: James Worpel’s start to the Supercoach year couldn’t have gone much worse than this could it? Has started the year with scores of 45, 54 and the most recent 40.

Rookies: Koschitzke was probably on the field for a lot of coaches this week, so the game of 4 disposals, 1 goal and 22 points was not welcome, much the same as Brockman’s 7 disposal, 29 point game. Second gamer Evans only mustered 1 point before he was subbed off with an ankle injury, but the good news was the solid 16 disposal, 53 point game of 123K M/F debutant Max Holmes.

Injuries: Besides the ankle injury to Evans, it was not the best day for Geelong recruit Higgins, who suffered a hamstring injury.
