Of those five wins, none have been consecutive, with inconsistency plaguing the Hawks in 2019.

So far this season Hawks fans have experienced the highs of beating sides such as GWS, Adelaide and Port Adelaide and then the lows of the losses to Melbourne and St Kilda.

Ricky Henderson has been a stand-out averaging 26.9 disposals a game and a number of the team’s younger players have shone through such as Mitch Lewis, James Worpel and Jack Scrimshaw.
