Punched/round armed Schofield to the head from behind off the ball. Schofield went down and got up pretty groggy. I guess it depends on whether it is graded as intentional or careless and impact as medium or low.

Bit of a dog act, and Hawkins has a history.

Looked intentional, medium and high which is two matches, though I can see them trying careless, low and high which is a fine.

Watch the AFL embarrassingly grade it as careless lol

absolute dog act, but it is Hawkins so not surprising at all
Even if they go careless and high, they have to somehow justify the force being "low" instead of "medium". Schofield absolutely should have come off and it's a reason why the rules around runners need to be loosened.

Hawkins just said to SEN: "We came about intending to throw the first punch and we did". Sound like a conspiracy charge to me.
Odd that post game he wasn't asked about the hit by Daisy. Won't make any difference next week as Tigers will go in dry, but he needs to be dealt with.
