Tom North goals! We are only 78 points behind now.

Commentators made an interesting point; Hawks are an inside team, and the Blues an outside team. Very true.

Crocker gets a gift free-kick and kicks truly. The Blue kick two in a minute.

Better than nothing but not much better. Just a joke of a performance really.

Off to watch a replay of something else. Let's hope the Blues can reduce it to toward 50 points.

Kemp needs some weight and running but his skills and nous are good.
Glad Ceglar and a few of the other Hawks didn't play seniors, is Jeka a rookie?
He should be in the seniors....

Just tuned in and wished I hadn't. Pathetic.

Last quarter wasn't too bad, but the total lack of bigmen is really telling. We are being smashed in the middle. Simple as that.
Kennedy got a fair bit of ball.
Parks not having a good one.
Our disposal is letting us down - isn't that a surprise.
Live Long and Prosper!

Depressing. Couldn’t stick a tackle, hit a target or spread with the intensity that’s needed.

No depth, no competition for spots despite Teague’s comments to the contrary.

Parks is more clueless than Plowman and that’s saying something. How can we recruit three players with as poor decision making as Plowman, Jones and Parks? Mind boggles.

Ouch!

A tad harsh on Parks? Only 19 so he at least has time to improve. Williamson started off very cool under pressure but learned how to truly panic playing alongside Plow and Jones. Hope it doesn't infect Parks also.

Hawks are good and our VFL have been a bit injury hit - especially in the big men department.

A spanking not a huge surprise. Kemp getting through without injury was the big positive.

Yes a bit harsh, but very hard to watch

Honey, Williamson and Kemp the only players that showed something

Agree....Kemp looks the goods but the layoff has left him thin looking and lacking a bit of pace.
He needs building up and we will have a very good player.
Honey should be in the seniors IMO, doesnt have to play 4 quarters just impact when he does get the footy and he can be a X factor player who kicks big goals and wins games.
Williamson needs a few more games in the VFL to show he has over come his fumbles and poor decision making.
Parks is raw and unsophisticated about how he plays the game at this stage and needs more work in the VFL to smooth out
his rough edges.

The commentators were saying that we fielded 11 afl listed players to hawthorn's 10.  Most of ours are first and second year players though with exception of Newnes and Kennedy.

Of the rest the hawks had ceglar who dominated, and they had a lot more players that had played 30 or more games at this level than we did. 

Tells the story well enough.  They also said there were a few players playing for the hawks that had won flags be it at vfl or afl level.

Well, that was three hours of my life I'll never get back  :(

At least Kemp showed a bit.  He will be playing in our AFL side before much longer.

Willo was OK but I think he got sucked into trying to do too much in the absence of genuine KPPs.  I'm not sure who put together our VFL side but I hope they don't have a role with our list management.

Yes, it was men vs boys at the weekend, and even Kemp looked like a skinny.
