Well, a tight tussle in the wet for the first game of the year. Worst result for us, unfortunately.

Plenty of players put their hand up, so who deserves to be recognised? You have 15 point to distribute, maximum 5 points to any player.

Disgraceful BS in the last 5 mins where the umpires have cost you the game the non call on the deliberate of bounds and the blatant time wasting is just blatant cheating

I hate theVic bias we see week in and out

Didn't think anyone stood out head & shoulders above anyone else, so I've given a spread:

4 - Matt Flynn: thought he was pretty strong on debut across a number of categories
3 - Callan Ward
3 - Harry Himmelberg
2 - Toby Greene
2 - Jacob Hopper
1 - Harry Perryman

5. Flynn - 2nd most hit outs to advantage of any debut ruck. some really important contested marks. really liked his game
4. Pez - his reading of the play has really come on.
3. Hopper - is becoming what we thought he would
1. Cal - almost back to his best, certainly his best in a long while.
1. Keefe - battled manfully all over the ground
1. Harry - 3 goals but we can’t have our focal forward playing chop out ruck (did Jezza ever contest a ball up/in?) again.

5. Matt Flynn - How good was he? Like seriously? It'll be interesting to see how he goes against an experienced ruck but holy sh*t, Preuss may not be a walk up with how good Flynn was!
3. Isaac Cumming - I may have been too harsh, was very impressed with him today especially with some of his kick ins, always love when a player backs himself to go for a central one or 7.
3. Harry Perryman - may genuinely be our best player, that is all
3. Jacob Hopper - Won a lot of ball and worked into the game, had moments where I thought he was seriously hurt throughout the game then he'd just go back at it
1. Stephen Coniglio - I'm happy with that for a captains performance, don't think he ever looked like giving up and got around the boys, looking improved

22 possessions at 77% DE and 9 intercepts - in game #11. Kid can play.

Was a day for the slow burners (he and Flynn). Hawthorn used to be famous for making players serve long apprenticeships before releasing them into the side as more finished products.

On the other side of the coin. He did have two brain snap clangers, the push and the dinky kick late that both led to opposition goals
