Ratings | Round 21 – Hawthorn v. North Melbourne

2017-08-13T18:30+10:00

Hawthorn retained bragging rights against fellow part-time Tasmanian inhabitant North Melbourne in a free scoring contest in Launceston.

Our Inside Football experts take a look at the individual performances of each player...

HAWTHORN – 18.8 (116)

Kaiden BRAND – 5

Beaten early by Brown, but solid down back with his disposal, and continues to get better.

Luke BREUST – 7

Became just the 11th player at Hawthorn to kick 300 goals. Finished with four after a slow start.

Shaun BURGOYNE – 4

Quiet day for Silk, but still impacted with two goals.

Ryan BURTON – 7

No more doubt on the Rising Star award – lock it in. 26 disposals and damaging. Looks like a rising leader and very composed.

Taylor DURYEA – 3

Quiet day with just seven kicks, and could face MRP scrutiny.

Conor GLASS – 5

Getting better every week. His kicking was outstanding and laid some good tackles too.

Jack GUNSTON – 8

Phenomenal work rate up and down ground from his half back role, 27 disposals and a goal.

Blake HARDWICK – 5

Gets to the right spots. Excellent opening quarter, but faded.

Billy HARTUNG – 6

Productive afternoon with 26 disposals and a goal. One of his better games for the year.

Ricky HENDERSON – 6

Too many players in similar roles saw him depart the Crows for more opportunity. But adds class to this Hawks team. Two goals.

Luke HODGE – 6

Started slowly and wasn’t his best kicking day, but got progressively better to continue his consistent back half of the year.

Dan HOWE – 6

Keeps getting the big jobs and delivering. Had 20 disposals and blanketed Cunnington.

Will LANGFORD – 5

The yips in front of goal keep getting bigger, but was busy with nine score involvements.

Ben MCEVOY – 6

Directly assisted Breust for three of his goals and kicked one of his own. Solid in the middle.

Teia MILES – 3

Quiet day with just seven touches, but kicked a goal late in the 2nd quarter.

Tom MITCHELL – 7

Led all-comers with 35 disposals and six clearances, but not at his damaging best. Still quality numbers though.

Tim O'BRIEN – 3

Struggled to have much of an impact. Maybe feeling it towards the end of the season?

Jarryd ROUGHEAD – 7

The captain delivered in spades. Vital first goal of the final term to halt the Roos momentum. Finished with eight marks and three goals.

Ryan SCHOENMAKERS – 3

Got his hands to plenty, but struggled to take many marks. One nice goal assist.

Liam SHIELS – 4

Busy around the footy, but only two kicks. Did contribute to the side with eight tackles.

James SICILY – 7

Foot skills exemplary and read the play beautifully. 11 Marks, but also did the tough things for the team.

Isaac SMITH – 8

29 disposals (17 to half time). Long kicking broke the game wide open and finished with two goals and 12 score involvements.

NORTH MELBOURNE – 14.5 (89)

Shaun ATLEY – 4

Ran hard, but lacked end product. Just seven kicks and a goal.

Ben BROWN – 6

Dynamite early, and unlucky not to be paid some marks he should’ve got. Finished with three goals, often up against many opponents.

Ryan CLARKE – 6

Plenty of the ball (27 disposals), has a real crack.

Ben CUNNINGTON – 4

With the skipper missing he needed to do more. Only 10 touches to ¾ time and well held.

Trent DUMONT – 6

Got the job on Tom Mitchell, but both players showed scant regard for their opponent. Finished with 25 disposals.

Sam DURDIN – 4

Likely type. Faded late, but showed why Roos have stuck by him, despite his injuries. Game high eight one-percenters.

Taylor GARNER – 5

Kicked two nice goals and his best is x-factor worthy. Just not enough of it.

Sam GIBSON – 6

26 disposals and six clearances. Solid.

Todd GOLDSTEIN – 2

Looks a shadow of himself. Only one kick and fumbled a lot. Cannot play him and Pruess in the same side.

Shaun HIGGINS – 7

Copped a heavy tag, but fought hard with 31 disposals and eight inside 50’s.

Nathan HROVAT – 3

Very quiet, but got a few touches late. Just six kicks and no goals for a small forward. Run in the VFL perhaps?

Luke MCDONALD – 7

22 disposals and a goal. Used his hardness to effect and was industrious by foot.

Declan MOUNTFORD – 3

Big goal right on ¾ time kept the Roos in it, but struggled via foot. Learning and should be persisted with.

Aaron MULLETT – 6

Was prepared to run hard and rebound. Nine first term disposals and finished with 20.

Daniel NIELSON – 4

Reasonably solid down back. Still very much learning his trade.

Braydon PREUSS – 5

Played a key role in the Roos 3rd quarter comeback with his physicality. Took some good marks and kicked two goals.

Jy SIMPKIN – 4

Tough day at the office. 12 disposals.

Andrew SWALLOW – 6

Got plenty of it in the middle, finished with 12 tackles and seven clearances, Solid

Robbie TARRANT – 6

Skipper for the day. Held up well down back, and used the ball well.

Scott THOMPSON – 3

Looked a frustrated man all afternoon, and little impact. Does he get a new deal?

Kayne TURNER – 2

First game back after seven weeks out injured. Kicked a goal, but little impact with just three kicks.

Cameron ZURHAAR – 5

Late inclusion for skipper Jack Ziebell. Two nice opportunist goals and took the game on. Promising.
