Excellent point.My seats were on the wing half forward for this game so got a good perspective of the whole ground...what was really obvious or what it appeared to be was our lack of fitness in that second quarter...maybe they had spent all their tickets in the first..time and again it seemed Hawthorn just ran off our guys to easy and we couldn't chase.....??
It was mentioned on the telecast that in the first quarter our pressure stats were off the chart, basically above elite. The commentator (I believe it was Nick Riewoldt) wondered if it was sustainable. The evidence clearly shows it is not. I’d rather 80-90% pressure over the whole game, than 110% for one and virtually nothing for the rest.
