    Quite a few of us would have James Cousins on our bench.
    He hurt his shoulder on the weekend playing for Box Hill and will have surgery on it, most likely out for the rest of the season.

    Hasn't made enough cash to doing anything with. Perfect loophole donut for games where Hawks play late enough in the round, which is basically every week other than this and round 19.

    HAWTHORN will consider sticking with youth in the final three rounds and warehousing its returning premiership heroes after a 29-point loss against Richmond that all but ended the club's finals charge.


    The Hawks have been waiting on the return of defenders Grant Birchall (knee), James Frawley (toe) and Josh Gibson (groin) as well as star forward Cyril Rioli (knee), but time is running out for the group.


    "We're not expecting too many back to be fair," the coach said on Sunday night.


    "Birchall, (Ben) Stratton, Rioli, Frawley, Gibson, they're probably all unlikely for the next week or two … but we're going to run out of time with three games left.


    "You've got to decide whether it's worthwhile bringing them back via Box Hill (and) Box Hill are top of the ladder and going really well, so it's probably going to destabilise them.


    "It might be best to just not worry about bringing them back and keep going with the younger fellas and see where that takes us over the next three weeks."

    New knee surgery slows veteran Hawk

    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-01-1...defenders-2018

    HAWTHORN defender Grant Birchall's horror injury run has continued, with the star Hawk requiring a pre-Christmas arthroscope on his troublesome right knee.

    Birchall hopes to be back running by the end of January, but already faces a race to be ready for round one after an abbreviated pre-season to date.
    Rule him out imo. Be lucky to string 5-6 games together and probably won't get to Round 1 anyway.

    His knee has never been the same since he did that injury down in Tassie a few years ago.
    Agree red line through his name.

    Unfortunately agree, since that knee when he was absolutely flying he's not been close to the same player even when he plays. Can't see the 95 average from him or the durability to justify anything less.

    Sicily is the Hawks gamble I'm looking at. JOM is probably the only other one I'm really even looking at (Titch obviously in the premiums).

    McEvoy is probably the only other one to consider, his strengths are best accentuated in a poorer team as evidenced by his best seasons at the Saints being as they slipped and last year at the Hawks. He tackles well, which involves losing around the contest and he's a very good intercept marker, which involves not having the ball, both things that get helped in a weaker side. They also don't really have a logical backup so hopefully he would get big minutes.

    Just say NO to Broughton.
