Interesting comments from a Cats fan.Tex. if it's not on a platter for hawk, he is pretty much useless.
I'm surprised his lack of second efforts and chasing isn't highlighted in the media more.
Is a throwback, playing in the wrong era.
I have changed my mind.Hawkins excels in one skill, contested marking, though granted its probably the most important one for a key forward. His speciality is that he is the best player in the league for when there is no options to kick to so just kick it in his direction and see what happens. His strength allows an advantage for him in every one on one no matter how good the defender is. The defender is always going to be out positioned and will need to fight for a draw with Hawkins. Also thank the stars he has also become a pretty decent kick and his marks usually become goals.
Tex is an all round key forward and the benchmark of what you look for from one, he marks, he runs to good spots, makes good decisions, kicks goals from all positions and situations. He is a one man forward line and a better player then Hawkins.
