A kid who has hardly played was really the driver behind our 2nd half turnaround.

Whatever Clarko and the forwards coach said clearly got him in to gear. A sublime 2nd half effort and continued on from his fantastic finish to 2020.

Interviewer : What's it like playing with this group?
Dylan : It's just fun.

So simple yet so good to hear and such a turnaround from the dreariness of 2020. Early days but there's such a good vibe coming from the changing of the guard.
A little snippet of the good vibes in the background of the clip too.

Granted it’s after a win, so take it with a grain of salt, but it’s good to see a group of the younger guys who were both playing and non-playing having some banter and laughs after last years shitshow.

Just finished watching that 3rd quarter again and wow he may be even better than i thought

Been great to see Breust take him under his wing and i think he has been great for him.

Lotta spunk for a little fella as well, going to piss oppo supporters off for years.

Liam Shiels echoed the same sentiments as Dylan Moore re the team this year. It seems like a really good place to be at the moment, hopefully a couple of bad losses don't ruin that vibe.

Moorey was fantastic in that 3rd quarter and his work ethic/rate and smarts around goal will be huge for us going forward.

Did everybody notice that he started the chain of possession on the back flank that lead to the goal he kicked from the goal line? Now that's serious workrate!
He showed clean hands in close on several occasions linking up with team mates well.

If he can narrow the gap between best (second half) and worst (first half) can become a very valuable player.

Interesting to see how he goes against the better teams where he won’t be able to get by on work rate and teams being defensively lax.

No coincidence his output has improved with his adjustment in role. He isn't a small forward, he's a high half forward who can use his running ability to pop up in the right spots at the right time
Hence the Michael Osbourne/Chance Bateman comparison Sam Mitchell made mention of recently.

When Dylan Moore next takes the field, he will set a modern-day record for games played wearing number 36 for Hawthorn.

Since Gene Chiron played the last of 33 games in number 36 in 1972 (he moved to number 9 in 1973), a total of 14 different players have worn number 36 in Senior games. However, remarkably, the 13 games played by Barry Young (2000) and Dylan Moore (2019-21) is the most any individual has managed in the number in almost half a century.

Max Bailey began his career in number 36, before first moving to number 1 and then achieving Premiership success in number 39. Josh Kennedy began in 36, moved to number 32, and then achieved success at Sydney. Other number 36s, like Andrew Demetriou and Ricky Nixon, achieved fame in other aspects of football.

The Hawthorn games record holder for number 36 is the late Brian Falconer, who played 57 games from 1956 to 1960. Number 36 is the lowest Hawthorn number, not to have been worn in a Premiership, while six higher numbers have earned that honour.

7 goals in 4 games. Leading our goal kicking.

Showed his other talent yesterday which is contested marking.

If he can lay a few more tackles a game (not that he is weak in that area however) then we'll have the perfect Poppy replacement for the next decade.

Never going to lay more tackles, not quick enough - if he can continue to link up and kick goals when required then I'll be happy. I'd like to see him thrown into a few more stoppages too because it's a genuine strength of his.
