The older Hawthorn blokes kicked 8 of their team's 10 goals
4 of their 6 best players were from the older brigade. Hardwick should've been named among the best players.
If we include him as an older guy (25yo, 120 games) then it's 5 of their best 7 players.
They are taking the piss with Sicily and Mitchell. JOM and Gunston well deserving of their spot in the bests today.
Our need of forwards and a creative attacking midfielder are clear as day though. Without Lewis and now Moore pushing up to the middle rather than HFF we have a big gap of younger blokes filling that role.
