4 Senior emergency.
5 WCE Fumbly at times, but grew into the game and was a handy contributor. 4
6 StK Struggled to get his hands on the ball. Kicked a nice goal in final term, but that was about it. 3
7 Melb Inexperienced defender gave away silly 50 that gave away a goal but did mix in some good stuff as a defender. Battled hard. 4
8 Bris Youngster won plenty of the footy. Looked comfortable on the wing and across halfback with 21 disposals. 6
9 Coll Took hard knock in third term but continued to battle it out (eight tackles). 5
10 Syd Okay throughout and another young Hawk who stood tall when needed. 5
11 Port Under more pressure than a one-armed paper boy but has to keep playing to gain more experience. Not the worst. 4
12 GCS Not sighted in a defence that was under the pump all day. He did what he could and just needs to get more games in. 4
13 Bye.
14 Adel Spent all game man handling Sloane, borderline fair or outside the spirit of the game. 6
15 Coll Tagged Pendlebury early and did the job fantastically well. Released later and ended with 26 disposals. Great game. 8
16 GWS Ran with Shiels for a quarter. Ended with 17 touches – 14 contested. Okay. 6
17 Geel Tagged Selwood in what was a great learning experience. Ended with 20 disposals and team-high 10 tackles. 6
18 Frem Good job tagging Fyfe. Kicked two goals. 7
19 Syd Completely shut down Kennedy in the midfield, copped an early knock but was brilliant. 8
20 Rich Had job on Martin when he played midfield. Tough ask given flow of the game but battled away as best he could. 6
21 NM Keeps getting the big jobs and delivering. Had 20 disposals and blanketed Cunnington. 6
22 Carl Moved off Murphy and failed to have an impact in the midfield. Average night. 4
23 WB Quiet in the midfield with just 11 effective disposals. Great learning year for the emerging Hawk. 4

16 Port Late call-up for O’Brien, played his role across half forward. 5
