What to expect

One area that the Saints have dramatically improved this season is their scoring efficiency when going inside forward 50.

Last year, they were ranked 13th in the competition, scoring on only 44.9% of their entries. But so far in 2017, they sit second-best in the league in this category, with 53.2% of their deliveries turning into scores.

This is helped by the fact that they are averaging the second most marks inside 50 at 14.2 per game, trailing only the Adelaide Crows, who average 17.6.

The Saints boast a forward line with multiple threats, with the ever-reliable Nick Riewoldt leading a band of promising, young forwards, in Tim Membrey, Josh Bruce, Jack Billings,...

Jaeger O’Meara

With Saturday’s midfield battle set to be a defining factor on the result, Jaeger O’Meara’s return to the Hawks line-up is significant.

Interestingly, the Hawks and the Saints are two of the worst four teams in the competition in clearances.

But the Hawks will be buoyed by the former Sun’s return, who sits second to only Tom Mitchell (5.2, O’Meara 4.7) in clearances per game.

O’Meara will be hoping for a quick return to his opening season form as he re-joins an improving Hawthorn midfield.

VFL match preview: Round 3

Box Hill Highlights: Round 2 The Box Hill Hawks remain undefeated after a sixty six point win against the Coburg Lions.

The Box Hill Hawks’ Senior and Development squads make the trip out to Williamstown this Sunday, with both looking to maintain perfect starts to the season and improve to three-and-zero.

Williamstown were the victors the last time the two sides met and are always a challenge for visitors to Burbank Oval.

The seventh placed Seagulls will be looking to bounce back from a 21-point defeat at the hands of the Northern Blues last weekend, whilst the third place Hawks will be keen to consolidate their promising start to the season, which continued with an eleven goal win last outing at home to Coburg.

The Vic Development League will act as a curtain raiser for the seniors, with the first bounce at 10:45am.

The Rundown

The Hawks were able to capitalise early, taking an 18-point lead into the first break, as the Saints started the game with multiple costly turnovers.

But in the second term the Saints were able to rectify these errors and steady the scoreboard back into their favour with Nick Riewoldt flourishing in his new role on the wing.

The Hawks were unable to pull away from the Saints, as the youthful enthusiasm of the Saints became a factor in the scores being even at the final change.

But the Hawks were able to grind away at the Saints, and...

3 Hawks in Team of the Week

RUCKMEN, resurgences and the continuation of three unbeaten runs were the talking points from the Anzac weekend, and are reflected in the round five Team of the Week, brought to you by Accor Hotels.

Three ruckmen made claim to spots in this week's team, with the standout Greater Western Sydney's Shane Mumford for his demolition job against Sydney.

Closely in contention were Richmond's Toby Nankervis and Hawthorn's Ben McEvoy. The big Tiger took out the fans' vote to claim the last spot on the bench.

As far as resurgences go, Fremantle backman Michael Johnson silenced the critics with a general-like performance in the Dockers' thriller over North Melbourne.

As always, midfield depth across the competition made selection tough with Nat Fyfe, Ollie Wines, Rory Atkins, Callan Ward, Dayne Zorko and Jack Steven unlucky to miss out. 

It was also tough for forwards, with Orazio Fantasia and...

Hawks prepare for Blue Ribbon Cup

AFL 2016 Rd 04 - Hawthorn v St Kilda

The Blue Ribbon Cup will be awarded to the winner of the Round 6 Hawthorn St Kilda clash.

Hawthorn and St Kilda will be playing for the annual Blue Ribbon Cup in their clash on Saturday afternoon.

Entering its 18th year, the Blue Ribbon Cup is played in memory of two Victorian Police officers, Sergeant Gary Silk and Senior Constable Rodney Miller, who were killed in the line of duty in August 1988.

The Hawks and Saints will meet at the University of Tasmania Stadium at 1:45pm on Saturday, in what will be the third time the traditional match has been hosted in Tasmania. 

As a mark of respect to all the Victoria Police officers who have been killed in the line of duty, players and on-field officials will wear blue and white checkered armbands while umpires will wave specially made Blue Ribbon Foundation flags.

Match preview: Round 6

Last Time We Met: St Kilda R4 2016 Same place, similar time of year and three points was all that separated the two sides, this Blue Ribbon match was a thriller.

The Saints narrowly missed last year's finals and a contributing factor was a three-point loss to the Hawks in the corresponding fixture when they were the better team on the day. That was about as poorly as the Hawks have played at their Tasmanian fortress for quite some time. They've won 19 straight games in Launceston and their thumping win over West Coast on Sunday suggests they've found their mojo once more after a bleak opening to the season. Hawthorn's backline is starting to click and the Saints don't appear to have the weapons to hurt the Hawks on the spread. This promises to be a beauty – close and tight throughout – but it is a crunch game for finals aspirant St Kilda who at 2-3 face the prospect of...

Consistency the key, says Smith

All The Goals: Round 5 v West Coast There were 19 goals in the Hawks win over the Eagles, watch all the six pointers that added to the tally.

Hawthorn vice-captain Isaac Smith can acknowledge his club has undergone considerable change over the past six months, but refuses to grant it as an excuse for the Hawks’ poor start to 2017.

Speaking to RSN on Thursday, Smith said that his side’s victory over West Coast on the weekend was a more accurate illustration of what expectations should be for the Hawks this season.

“We’ve been pretty disappointing in the first four weeks but what we dealt on the weekend, we were pretty impressed with,” Smith said.

“We’ve had a couple of changes and we’re trying to get that consistency, but is that an excuse to be losing? And losing by the amount of points that we have? Definitely not.

“I think we’re a lot better side than what we dished out in the...

Team announcement: Round 6

Team Announcement: R6 v St Kilda See the side that will travel to Launceston to take on the Saints in Round 6.

Jaeger O’Meara is a welcome inclusion to the Hawks’ Round 6 team set to take on St Kilda.

The young midfielder returns to the line-up after spending two weeks on the sidelines while recovering from a knock to the knee sustained during Hawthorn’s Round 3 clash with the Suns.

GM- Football Operations Jason Burt believes O’Meara’s availability will give the Hawks’ midfield an added boost ahead of its clash with the Saints.

“Jaeger’s selection is a real positive as we head into this weekend’s game,” says Burt.

“As we’ve said all along, we wanted to take a cautious approach due to Jaeger’s medical history, and we’re fully confident that he is fit and ready to go.”

“We know he can slot seamlessly into our midfield and play his role.”

Though the Hawks’ will undoubtedly be buoyed...

Footy flashbacks: Round 6

R5: Roughead slots his 500th Hawthorn captain Jarryd Roughead takes a strong mark in the forward line and kicks career goal no. 500

When Hawthorn played St Kilda 40 years ago in Round 6 1977, the Hawks set two records which remain in place to this day.

Hawthorn’s extraordinary score of 25.41.191 set League records for most behinds and most scoring shots. Hawthorn still clearly holds both records with the second highest tally of behinds being 35 by Geelong in 1981 and the second highest number of scoring shots being 60 by Carlton in 1969.

The inaccuracy was largely in the first half as the Hawks went to the long interval with a score of 10.24.84. Just two of the 41 behinds were rushed, with 13 individual players kicking at least one behind. The Matthews brothers were major contributors with Kelvin booting 4.6 and Leigh 4.5, while others included Peter Hudson (7.4), John Hendrie...

AFL 2017 Training - Hawthorn 200117

Jack Fitzpatrick was best on ground in last weekend's VFL clash.

Hawks fans will be hopeful Jaeger O’Meara is fit for selection as the Hawks set themselves to take on St Kilda on Saturday.

Hawthorn Elite Performance Manager Andrew Russell said that the 23-year old will benefit from another strong week on the training track.

“Jaeger trained last Thursday and trained pretty well, but he wasn’t quite right,” Russell said.

“So we’re going to have another crack this week with him at training and we’ll make an assessment at the end of the week about how good his function is”.

With Isaac Smith having recovered from a leg injury sustained against the Eagles on Sunday, the successful Hawk 22 look set to be available to take on the Saints.

Although strong performances at VFL level will ensure competition for spots remains high.

Bupa recovery report: Round 6

Bupa Recovery Report: Round 6 Jack and Hannah discuss the injuries of a few big name Hawks from the weekend and the season so far.

Following injury concerns sustained in Round 5, both Isaac Smith and James Sicily have recovered well and are expected to play in this week's clash against St Kilda.

Smith limped off the ground after overextending his knee in the second quarter, but according to Elite Performance Manager Andrew Russell, it didn't take long for the wing man to bounce back.

"Isaac's pulled up pretty well. He stretched the medial side of his knee a little bit," says Russell.

"After 10 minutes on the sidelines, it had settled down so he continued to play and he was pretty much full function."

Russell says Sicily is still feeling some soreness after sustaining a 'corkie' during the clash with the Eagles, but believes the young forward will be in full fitness come...

The Hawks' lucky charm

Goals of the Week: R5 v West Coast There were seventeen goals kicked on the weekend, watch the standouts from Round 5.

AFL 2017 Round 05 - Hawthorn v West Coast

Howe's nine tackles was the most for Hawthorn, and the second most of the field - behind only Matt Priddis (11).

Daniel Howe could be Hawthorn’s lucky charm.

Of the 16 senior games Howe has played, the Hawks have emerged victorious in all but two, giving the young defender a tidy winning record of 89 per cent.

Howe returned to the AFL side for Sunday’s 51-point win over the Eagles, and the 21-year-old’s effort couldn’t be faulted.

He managed a team-high nine tackles, as well as 13 disposals, 21 pressure acts and four clearances.

Ever modest, Howe says he was just happy to be able to contribute to the team’s success.

“I was able to play my role for the team, and we came away with the win so that’s all that really matters,” said Howe.

“Hopefully I can keep going and...
