I'll take that given where Hawthorn is at the moment. TIges absolutely punished our errors (two dropped chest marks from Frost resulted in goals). Richmond too classy in the end but there's at least something to work with for the Hawks. Absolutely need to find a bull type midfielder because we were slaughtered in the midfield (although Wingard was very good in the last). Richmond can defintiely cause some trouble for the other sides in the eight. Too many good players not to be a threat.

I liked how the hawks didn't drop away and came out fighting till the end....That is a neon sign that the hawks are on to a good thing.

And that’s hawthorns lot.
Not good enough for finals
Not bad enough for premium draft picks
Mitchell knew it in trade week
He tried …
Carlton’s lot can be summed up as more succinctly - not good.

The fact you had some sort of a chance for an upset 10 points down with 2-3 minutes to go, the Hawks kept coming as they did against Demons. That's a terrific sign, once the young guys mature a bit more that never say die attitude will win you a lot of games.

We need midfield depth and quality desperately. It's entrenched in the league that it's the worst and has been for some time. We have an awful group of midfielders who can't win clearances to save themselves bar Newcombe, at times Jaeger, Nash and Wingard when he plays there. It's why we threw Day in there today to see what he can bring. Badly missing our 1st choice ruckman too which has had an effect on our form since the Geelong game. No CJ or Reeves and we haven't been the same.

So given you beat us by one point, you'd have to say Carlton are similarly placed. So far we've played 6 of the current top 8 as it stands tonight, compared to Carlton's 2. We've both beaten one top 8 side. There is nothing surer in life than Death, Taxes, and Carlton fans getting ahead of themselves.

Yeah, exactly. He just understands the game so well and uses his body so well too. Not an impressive athlete by any stretch yet makes people far stronger, faster and taller look silly almost every week.

Freakshow!
Doesnt rely on athletic traits like speed , Leap or endurance and can have the strength into his late 30's
Football brain and talent is his wood and could be a 50 goal foward with 80/20 fwd/mid split

still has another 100+ games left in him

Tigers look in really good form . Lynch is in red hot . They just looked physically bigger and stronger than across the field.
They will be damgerous if they stay fit.

Was really glad we fought it out .
Liked seeing Day and Macdonald go through the midfield.
