Expect this one to die off pretty quickly.

To win Coleman’s you need bags of 7-8 historically at your peak and Hawkins best is 4-5 with quiet weeks of 1-2 sometimes nothing.

Just won’t happen, but he will have a good year with 50-60 goals
He kicked 7 goals twice in consecutive weeks last year, so he can kick a bag. Plus the forward line is functioning a lot better as a whole this year so there's no reason he can't get a few big hauls, particularly given our fixture for the rest of the year - fair few bottom teams to come.

s**t, I might have just convinced myself!

R23. Tomahawk needs one goal to win the Coleman. He is 20 metres out on a slight angle. He sees Tim Kelly in a slightly better position, clear of his opponent, handballs to him, and Kelly goals. Siren sounds

PS: Kelly thinks to himself that if Hawkins and the Geelong teammates are so selfless why would he want to leave....

...Kelly goes home and tells his wife he wants to stay. She says "no". He says "okay".

While I think it’s unlikely, all it takes is a suspension or injury to Cameron (not wishing it in him) and Hawks right in there. Last years winner kicked 65. Not even at the half way point of the year and Hawks on 31. It’s unlikely, but geez, it’s going to be fun to see how close the big fella comes. And let’s remember, it’s the ride not the destination.

To be fair, I can't think of any tall (or, at least, spearhead) forward who deserved it since Ablett Sr in 89. Hawkins would have if he'd kicked straight, or played like that all game and not just the second half.
Tom Boyd came pretty close a few years ago, if he converted that last shot that he missed he could've almost got the norm
