Does anyone know how it happened, if he's broken the tibia and fibia it's akin to a car accident type injury.He might be out til round 8 2020 if I'm reading things right.

Awful for Tom. Very unlucky and will be missed for whatever period he is out.

In other news, if you haven't loaded up on the Crows to win Round 1 there isstill time. Its been smashed to 1.46 but thats still good value.

Hawthorn to miss the top 8 is nice @ 1.70 but this only for big punters.

-50 disposals in Hawks possession count each week.

Serious though, speedy recovery Tom and hopefully he has a strong 2020. But I think Hawks make the 8 if some pieces fall together.

Hopefully there will be no ongoing complications in the coming years.
Bad enough that he will miss this year, fingers crossed on a full recovery and he will be back next season at 100%
This is my concern too. I still have awful memories of Nathan Brown at Richmond.

How will the Hawks and Clarkson react?

One soldier goes down another comes in to replace him!!

That is the Hawks unofficial motto. It won them several flags.

Bad news for Tom but that is the industry. He will be back and as Naitanui has said on several occasions their are real people in the world with real problems, missing a year of footy is not the end of the world by a long way.

He accumulates the ball better than any player we have ever seen, broke most disposals in a season and game record. Sad too see not see another year of him in his prime

Tackling drills i think i read somewhere...

If thats right... he may have had someone fall across his leg in a tackling attempt?..

Just a guess though..

Get your bets on now for Matt Crouch to get the most touches in the season.
I hope brad crouch gets more touches than his brother!.. a few more 80 plus possession games from the two crouch bro’s, like that 2017 west coast game, would make me very happy!

We missed brad dearly for the entire 2018 season.

Season ending OP, knee injuries and broken legs are faaarked.

If Greg Williams played in this era of non- accountability he would have averaged 55 possessions a week. All more damaging.

Best of luck to Tom for a quick recovery

The guy gets a hard tag every second week. Just out-works his opponent on the spread and out-muscles his opponent in close

Interesting that when he plays he is a crab who does nothing, but now hes injured our season is over.

Dont ever change Big Footy !
Destroyed us last year and was the difference between the two sides.
Terrible news and I just can’t see the Hawks playing finals now

You’re joking right? Hard tag every second week? Soft tag every 10th quarter. Diesel dealt with a “hard tag” every game he played. Even the umpires liked to get inside his personal space 😉
Again, I wish Tom a speedy recovery.

If you think that this era is one of “non-accountable” football you know absolutely zilch about the game.
