With or without Hawkins should be no issue for me if we play 4 quarters.

Geelong copped the full force of a pro-Richmond crowd in 2017 but Dangerfield said the Cats were keen to play in front of a packed house - regardless of whether the Tigers had bigger numbers.

"I don't think it gets you off your game - you love hearing it," he said.

"There's nothing like a packed crowd. You'd prefer it to be your own supporters but you appreciate it for what it is, when it is the opposition. So you want to play in (front of) as big a crowd as possible."

Dangerfield emphasised the importance of Geelong retaining possession against the Tigers, whose game is built on manic pressure and rapid transition.

"When they generate movement from their back half, every single player moves forward and really looks to press and overlap," Dangerfield said.

"So we've got to make sure we don't turn the ball over in positions where it's impossible to defend, continue to give our forwards a good look and chop out our defenders where possible.

"They're an incredible side, they have been for a long time. They've got a great contribution of even players and then they've got some superstars in there as well."

Couldn't agree more.

The afl will find a way for him to play.

If they loved playing in front of big crowds then Geelong wouldn't keep sooking about playing home games in finals at the 'G.

If Chris Scott believes in giving the home/higher ranked team the maximum advantage in finals then he'll now agree to Richmond supporters having first access to tickets and filling the 'G a la GWS-Prelim-style leaving just a few hundred tickets aside for away Cats fans  :wallywink.

The Big Boo will be baaaaaaaaaaack!  ;D

Yep. Hawkins has got a week.

Classed as intentional, high contact and low impact = one week.

---------------------------------------------

Charge Laid:


Tom Hawkins, Geelong Cats, has been charged with Striking Will Schofield, West Coast Eagles, during the third quarter of the Semi Final match between the Geelong Cats and the West Coast Eagles, played at the MCG on Friday September 13.
 
In summary he can accept a one-match sanction with an early plea.

Based on the available evidence, the incident was assessed as Intentional Conduct with Low Impact and High Contact. The incident was classified as a one-match sanction.

So  he now pleads guilty and cop a fine?

I am still sceptical of the afl in finding some way of Hawkins getting away with it.

No guilty pleads now. They will challenge by saying it was careless and not intentional. His only chance. May have a sneaky chance too as he didn't clench his fist although I'm not sure what his arm was doing swinging that way.....
