Roughy's 25th bag of five

hawthornfc.com.au  August 31, 2017 4:09 PM

Goals of the Week: R23 v Bulldogs Roughy booted five, Smith slotted some trademark ones from the run, this week's goals package has some pearlers.

When Jarryd Roughead booted his fifth goal against the Western Bulldogs on Friday night, he created a little piece of history. 

The Hawthorn skipper recorded the 25th time he had kicked five or more goals in an AFL game.

Only four other current players have reached this mark, Lance Franklin (65 times), Josh Kennedy (30), Nick Riewoldt (26) and Eddie Betts (25). 

Franklin’s 65 stellar performances sits him narrowly outside the top ten of all-time in the category, with St Kilda’s Bill Mohr slightly ahead with 68 games of five or more goals.

Having played 253 games, Roughead’s strike rate with a bag of goals is mightily impressive, going at almost once every ten games.

Yet the Hawthorn skipper, who booted his first bag of five in his 46th game against Carlton in Round 12 2007, has a way to go before he reaches the heights of some of the game’s most famous goal kickers.

On the all-time list for games with five-plus majors, Tony Lockett leads the way with 145 of his 281 career games, followed by Hawthorn’s Jason Dunstall (128 from 269 games). 

These statistics are incredible when you consider Lockett kicked five goals or more in a game more often than he didn’t.

Another impressive stat sheet comes from Hawthorn goal kicking great, Peter Hudson. 

From his 129 games, the Tasmanian Hawk kicked five or more 78 times, at a rate of over 60%. 

Nevertheless, Jarryd Roughead continues to break records with his goal kicking prowess.

His next achievement in sight may be to break into Hawthorn’s top five all-time goal kickers list.

The group is headed by Jason Dunstall (1,254 goals) followed by Leigh Matthews (915), Peter Hudson (727), Michael Moncrieff (629) and Lance Franklin (580).

The 30-year old Roughead sits 51 goals behind Buddy in fifth position, with 529 career goals.
