Last time we met

Hawthorn (142) defeated West Coast (26) in Round 10, 2023.

Hawthorn managed a massive 116-point victory over the Eagles in Launceston to earn their second win of the 2023 season.

The margin saw the Eagles suffer their heaviest loss of the season, while for the Hawks it was the first time they had scored more than 20 goals since 2016.

Mitch Lewis kicked a career-high 6 goals, Luke Bruest slotted three, while Josh Weddle and Cam Mackenzie kick two each.

Both James Sicily and Conor Nash were heavily involved and finished with 30 disposals and were among the best players.

Our last game

Hawthorn (97) defeated Richmond (49)

The Hawks managed a fourth straight win after walking away from the MCG as 48-point victors in front of a crowd of over 92,000.

It was Richmond’s milestone-man Dustin Martin who slotted the first goal of the game but from there it was all Hawthorn.

Will Day was best on ground for the brown and gold, finishing with 20 disposals and five inside 50, which complemented his damaging work with the football and aggressive defensive running.

Mabior Chol managed four majors and assisted with the ruck work, while Luke Bruest was again impressive as the substitute, coming on for Jack Gunston in the third term and proving immediately threatening inside 50.
