Hawthorn Coach Alastair Clarkson did little to hide his thoughts about his side's win over North Melbourne on Sunday night. 

Despite the Hawks prevailing by four points and entering the top four on the back of the victory, Clarkson wasn't necessarily impressed.

"There were no highlights in the game apart from the fact that we got a result," a blunt Clarkson told a press conference post-match.

"I don't think North played well and I don't think Hawthorn played well. 

"But we got a result so we can bank it and move on."

Clarkson spoke at length in his post-match press conference about the trends of modern-day football, saying he was concerned about the lack of "spectacle" in low-scoring, high-congestion affairs.
