Hawks cruise past Magpies, Crows go top

21 juli 2012 14:48

The match was still up for grabs at half-time of what was billed as a blockbuster encounter, but a devastating 13-minute burst after the major break, which saw the Hawks slam on five unanswered goals, emphatically ended the contest.

They eventually ran out 21.12 (138) to 13.13 (91) victors in front of 83,714 fans after the margin blew out to 68 in the last quarter.

The win, Hawthorn's seventh win in a row, sees the Hawks provisionally enter the top two, but no matter what ladder position they possess on Sunday, make no mistake - they are this year's number one premiership threat.

Hawthorn's disposal efficiency and intensity on the opposition ball carrier was simply devastating all day and their ability to limit the influence of Collingwood's key playmakers was startling.

Magpie defenders Nick Maxwell, Heath Shaw and Nathan Brown were also forced to play one-on-one for most of the game and got badly exposed as Jordan Lewis (five goals), Luke Breust (five), Jack Gunston (three) and Jarryd Roughead (three) stood up superbly in the absence of Franklin.

Collingwood's key forwards failed to fire a shot as Travis Cloke, Chris Dawes and Chris Tarrant combined for just two goals in first three quarters by which time the game was well and truly over.

Lewis, whose five-goal haul was a personal best, ended up with 20 disposals and the use of him as a permanent forward was a master stroke.

Adelaide added further lustre to their premiership credentials with a 49-point pasting of West Coast at AAMI Stadium, but the big win came at a cost with key forward Kurt Tippett suffering his third head injury in five weeks.

Tippett was subbed off early in the third quarter of the Crows' 19.10 (124) to 11.9 (75) triumph after he clashed heads with Eagles hard man Beau Waters late in the second term.

An undermanned and under siege Carlton kept their faint finals hopes alive with an 18-point come-from-behind victory against Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium.

The Blues trialled by 25 points before half-time but booted 10 goals to three in the second half to claim the much-needed 16.6 (102) to 12.12 (84) victory.

Port Adelaide snapped a run of five successive losses with a 12.12 (84) to 8.8 (56) triumph over Melbourne at TIO Stadium in Darwin, while Brisbane took out the QClash with an 11-point win over Gold Coast.
