Hawthorn overran the Western Bulldogs, but there was a lot to like for both sides

HAWTHORN missed forwards Jack Gunston and Chad Wingard, but the Hawks found the firepower to make a comeback against the Western Bulldogs in Wednesday’s practice game

The Hawks lagged behind any change on the first official hit of the preseason but hit back last season to beat the Bulldogs’ top by 15 points

After Hawthorn’s group of strikers scored four goals to one in the first season, they turned the tables and offered coach Alastair Clarkson numerous options in the first round, Tim O’Brien, Luke Breust and Ollie Hanrahan each scoring three goals while Mitch Lewis with two majors was also impressive

The Bulldogs would have been strengthened by the pairing of Recruit Stef Martin and Ruckman Tim English (pictured) The athletic former lion, who had tasted the dogs little in the trading period last year, displayed his wares on the ground and also let English drift forward, where he posed a threat in the air and scored two goals

Caleb Daniel continued his selection across Australia last year, dominating the back half while Josh Bruce, who had a mixed start to his career with the Dogs last season, scored two goals, including one of one highly competitive brand

Bolters of the first round It’s a good line-up in the kennel with Zaine Cordy, Josh Schache, Cody Weightman, Ed Richards and Taylor Duryea excluded from the main game, McNeil and Scott, if signed, threaten as potential bets for Luke Beveridge’s team at the start of the Hawthorn season tried a few more youths This is their rebuilding position Changkuoth Jiath impressed half the back with his pace, his shot and his skill Tyler Brockman, who won selection No. 46 was selected at last year’s NAB AFL Draft, was bloody as a small striker and although calm, as a chance for the Hawks’ season opener with Essendon
