terrible news ... although an oppo player you gotta respect the fact he is a damn good one ... it sucks when an injury in preseason wipes out a season ... hopefully unlike Gooses leg this one heals quickly and without complication
Feel bad for Mitchell but don’t care about the Hawks . It must be a really bad break as they had to get the ambulance on the ground to help him . Hopefully he will recover and play next season. Remember Brown from the Dogs / Tigers , he was never the same player after his bad break .
watch they will prob finish bottom 4 this year , Josh Kelly will nominate them as his prefered club and they will win the 2020 flag and everyone will gush how great they are to bounce back so quick ....
Big blow for Hawks 2019 season.
I remember Goose and Terry Wallet's love child (Browny) breaking their legs. Neither were ever the same.
Wonder if Clarko can work his magic and develop another gun from seemingly nowhere to keep their ladder position up.
Or... could the Saints actually sneak ahead of them now.
Interesting times ahead.
Its going to be interesting watching the Hawks midfield this year considering how dependant they are on Mitchell being the main accumulator. Tag him heavily and they suffer but not having him in the side means Clarko is going to have to adjust. Thing is, they are an old as hell team without that midfield dominance of 5 years ago. Tough.
