Afternoon at the MCG Hawthorn V Melbourne

So on the Sunday of my family holiday I went to the MCG to check watch the Hawks play the Demons, I was pretty excited I don’t get to see Hawthorn in Melbourne very often so I was really hoping for a win for the Hawks. The weather was not great and I had on only my Hawks media polo from a few years ago so with it only being about 17 degrees and raining on and off I was getting pretty cold. Check out the jacket I brought below (not my best selfie effort) maybe I could smile or something…

I had a great view of the game on the wing almost directly in line with the centre circle, throughout the game I took a whole bunch of video as well check out the merged video footage

My Hawthorn v Melbourne footage MCG 15 April 2018, big win by the Hawks over the Demons

I tried to capture a few goals and some centre clearances, being a Hawks fan I focused way more on when they had the ball. Forgive my poor footage at times I got distracted watching the game sorry…

I found it great to watch Tom Mitchell live, he didn’t have his best game but he works hard always running and getting very few cheap possessions. Melbourne paid him very close attention and the stoppages with Jones almost glued to him yet he was still the leading clearance getting for the game. I reckon he has a great shot to win a Brownlow over the next 2-4 years if he stays injury free. He does need to work on his disposal a little more, he doesn’t quite have the elite kicking skills of some of the more recent great Hawthorn midfielders.

Roughy started slow but got into the game as it went on and we are finally starting to see dividends into the Hawks recruitment of Jaeger O’Meara┬áif he can stay injury free they have a pretty impressive midfield.
