NAB Cup, Round 1: Premiership stars lead Hawks to big win

After a fairly boring day to say the least, which started with tennis in the morning, I eagerly awaited 4.40pm. It finally came, and I opened up Realplayer on my laptop and started listening to the coverage of Adelaide v Port Adelaide by SEN radio. The Power ran away with the match in the second half and we had our first real surprise of the NAB Cup. But Hawthorn and Richmond awaited, I hope to see an exciting match and a surprising result, but I couldn’t see it happening for the Tigers.

The Hawks ran out in their clash strip, while the Tigers looked striking in their black number, which they only wear in the NAB Cup, please explain. Dustin Martin looked fit and ripped and I eagerly awaited to see if this kid can play.

The first quarter began and Franklin was imposing for Alex Rance with the first two goals of the game from marks. David Astbury kicked a nice goal from 20m out, and looks a likely type. Franklin bobbed up again and kicked his third, followed by goals to Luke Hodge, Xavier Ellis after smothering a kick and snapping a goal from a tight angle, Jarryd Roughead and Garry Moss after Roughead unselfishly but dangerously kicked the ball back into play from the boundary line, but Moss capitalized. The Hawks had opened up a handy 38-point lead at quarter time, 0.7.3 (45) to 0.1.1 (7).

The second quarter began with a super goal to Luke Breust after a 50m penalty. Franklin kicked his fourth, but Jack Riewoldt answered with a good goal. Sam Mitchell kicked a super goal after another 50m penalty, and goals from Matt Suckling and Jordan Lisle saw the Hawks out to a very handy lead of 72 points at half time, and things were only getting worse for Richmond. Tough youngster Ben Nason’s leg awkwardly gripped with the turf as he was running and looked to rip his ACL, but the signs after the match were good. At half time, the Hawks led 2.10.7 (85) to 0.2.1 (13).

The third quarter saw Liam Shiels goal after a free kick, but Tom Hislop replied with a good goal after a bad turnover by Ryan Schoenmakers in the goalsquare. Franklin marked on the boundary line and from 45m out, split the middle with a perfect kick for his fifth. Hodge and Mitchell kicked quick goals followed by a long bomb off a standing start from Roughead saw the umpire signal nine points. Graham Polak kicked a good goal late in the quarter, but Roughead took advantage of a poor Richmond backline to take an uncontested mark and kick his third goal of the match, giving the Hawks a 102-point lead going into the last break.

The final quarter saw Riewoldt kick the first two goals before Schoenmakers kicked a rare goal, taking the margin back out to 97 points. The Tigers replied strongly with back-to-back goals through Robin Nahas, followed by a good mark to Mitch Morton over brother Jarryd. As M. Morton came into kick, J. Morton shouted obscenities at his older brother, much to the delight and laughter of the crowd and viewers at home. Mitch kicked a goal by the way, and it would be the last goal of the game, the Hawks winning by 73 points, 3.16.12 (135) to 0.9.8 (62).

First thing that comes to mind when I think of tonight’s performance: Wow. Hawthorn really impressed me tonight with their skill, cluster and defence. I had to keep in mind that they were playing Richmond, but if the Indigenous likes of Cyril Rioli, Shaun Burgoyne and Josh Gibson were playing tonight, I would predict the margin would have been a lot bigger. As for the Tigers, Martin was impressive with 26 disposals, Nason was good before his knee injury and Astbury looks like he’ll get some opportunities in the forward line this year. Danny Connors would be pleased with his efforts, 25 possessions and nine marks, while Robbie Nahas showed some signs that he won’t be suffering from any second-season blues. But the likes of Mitchell, Hodge, Jordan Lewis and Brad Sewell, who combined for a total of 116 possessions, were far too good. But the Tigers showed they have turned a new leaf, under Wallace they most likely would have rolled over and died, but to their credit they stuck at it and were rewarded with a five goal to one final term. Maybe Hardwick really can take this team somwhere.

Hawthorn 0.7.3—2.10.7—3.15.11—3.16.12 (135)

Richmond 0.1.1—0.2.1—0.4.2—0.9.8 (62)


Super goals: Breust, Mitchell, Roughead

Hawthorn-Franklin 5, Roughead 2, Hodge 2, Ellis, Moss, Suckling, Lisle, Shiels, Schoenmakers, Mitchell.

Richmond-Riewoldt 3, Nahas 2, Astbury, Morton, Hislop, Polak.

Richmond-Martin, Connors, Deledio, Collins, Riewoldt

    21- lmao i hate it when u put effort and it come out crap but when i just tie up up without a mirror and im about to mop the house it looks GREAT! argggg lol

  23. Josh Barnstable says

    Lettuce is alright, although for two weeks in a row i’ve had to sweep the mushrooms under the carpet, i can’t stand them. So far the teacher hasn’t noticed.

  24. 22: Yuk! Lettuce! Mayo! Eurgh! Although the chicken isn’t too bad.

  25. ……23 what and ewwwwwwwwww

    status- jamming to song in comment 19

  26. My favourite song was released in 1983.

  27. 24- lol yeah deff cant marry you adam!
    that only thing i can cook. lmaoo

  28. I can tolerate lettuce to an extent if it’s mixed in with a bunch of other things, like in a burger or something, but I can’t stand mayo anywhere.

  29. 26- 1983????????

  30. Yep, 9 years before we were born. Hawthorn won their 5th premiership that year.

  31. Josh Barnstable says

    25: Hmm?

    26: What song Adam?

  32. Iron Maiden – The Trooper

  33. Josh Barnstable says

    Iron Maiden? No thanks

  34. lmaoo remind me not to listen to my jam while im driving cos I WILL DANCE AT THE WHEEL! lmaoo

    I love mayo..JUST NOT THE 95% FAT FREE ONE MUM BOUGHT! :(

  35. 32- ill have a listen.

  36. …yeah Adam…no wonder u dont like the Jonas Brothers ROFLMAOOOOOLOL times a trillion.
    interesting…but deff not my thing…

  37. Josh Barnstable says

  38. status- crazy dancing to same song as comment 19

  39. 37- YEAH iu like it..not bad but Hot Mess is like…hot dayum better lol

  40. Josh Barnstable says

    39: Trust me, listen to it a few times and it’ll be better than Hawt Mess.

  41. watch these dudes Dance!
    i watch this like 5 times in a row lmaoo

  42. Josh Barnstable says

    Everyone get their little black book today?

  43. Damian Watson says

    Intresting to see Andrew Lovett charged today so I doubt his career at the Saints will continue.

    I can’t believe none of you guys like the Foo Fighters!

  44. Josh Barnstable says

    43: I do Damo, Wheels and The Pretender are my favourite songs by them, and Times Like These makes me sad for some reason.

  45. Steve Healy says

    my favourite song is the Melbourne theme song, no joke.

    Thanks for that link Danni, I still cant believe that Jurrah signed my jumper

  46. Steve Healy says

    42- Not everyone

  47. 45- the part about the theme song..thats a problem…

    did he sign it while u were wearing it?

    you guys need to learn to dance like NLT in water

  48. Josh Barnstable says

    46: That’s just racist Steve.

    I’ve got the Melbourne theme song, the Bulldogs theme, Freo theme and the Power theme in my iTunes.

  49. Steve Healy says

    How can your club’s theme song not be your favourite song? It’s obviously the song that makes you the happiest, gives you the most joy, and the one you know the best.

    Yeah, he did Danni. He’s so nice to the fans, even though he’s a bit shy. He spent ages on the field after the game signing autographs

  50. if you guys have not see the
    ‘can i have you number?’ thing on youtube u better now cos its so funny and steve u should watch it especailly lmaoo
    ill grab the link

  51. 49- lmaoo well i remember when Cameron cloke signed my t-shirt he touched my shoulder and i thought i was going to pass out

  52. Steve Healy says

    Liam Jurrah’s signature is awesome, Wonaeamirri’s is really funny, it looks like this:

    /\/\/\/\/\/\/\ 33

    I hope my piece gets put up

  53. STEVE watch this and rofl

  54. Josh Barnstable says

    LOL, i can imagine Jurrah doing something like that

  55. Steve Healy says

    hahahaha thats hillarious

  56. ‘excuse me can i talk to you for a minute?”
    lmaoo ;)

  57. Josh Barnstable says

    Lol i like his eyes when he’s asking for her number lol.

  58. Steve Healy says

    Yeah It’d be Jurrah with Danni

  59. lmaoo
    its soo funny
    when hes like

  60. Josh Barnstable says


  61. “Thats a french ass name Ivvone!!”
    my liitle brie,

  62. Steve Healy says

    I need to make a plea to the editors for Jurrah to be on this year’s Almanac cover

  63. Josh Barnstable says

    No, the cover of the Footy Almanac 2010 will be Ben Cunnington or Jack Ziebell.

  64. Joel Selwood.

  65. Damian Watson says

    Chris Judd should be on the cover lol.

    What show was that clip off Danni?

  66. Steve Healy says

    There would be no better fit for the Almanac cover this year than Jurrah

    No Josh, one of those hasn’t played yet and the other impressed but broke their leg

  67. i dont know…but its hilarious
    Josh u better show it to Hayley when u see her next lmaoo

  68. Steve Healy says

    They wont pick Selwood cos they already put Chapman on the 07 cover.

    Judd’s too boring, if anything they should’ve had Judd on the 08 one

  69. Jonathan Brown.

  70. Steve Healy says

    No, Liam jurrah, and ill draw the picture

  71. Josh Barnstable says

    One impressed and broke his leg? Ziebell was more impressing than Jurrah last year Stephen.

  72. adam say something funny!!

  73. Steve Healy says

    you’ve gotta be joking, Ziebell didn’t capture the imaginations of thousands of people. Did Ziebell kick goals on his back? no. Did Ziebell even attempt a high flying mark? no. You’re just being completely biased Joshua

  74. 73: I think I’m the only one here who isn’t being biased

    72: I can’t just say something funny at will, I need something to comment about thats funny

  75. Josh Barnstable says

    I’m being completely biased!?? Screw you Healy

    Did Jurrah win a Rising Star Nomination? No, because he’s too old. Ziebell is only 18, and he was diving into contests, winning the hard ball and feeding it out to the likes of Harvey, Rawlings and Swallow.

  76. Josh Barnstable says

    74: Jarrad Oakley Nicholls, Jordan McMahon, Jake King, Jayson Laycock, Simon Taylor..does that help Adam?

    Footnote: Most of those hacks have names starting with ‘J’…

  77. Damian Watson says

    Ziebell was a revelation but you have to admire Jurrah’s transition from a town which was fairly isolated with grounds consisting of sand and dust into the big league, his skills were phenomonal.

  78. 76: You forgot Tom Hislop, Kepler Bradley, Simon Taylor, Xavier and Raph Clarke, Mark Blake, Alan Toovey, Simon Taylor…

  79. Steve Healy says

    Josh, Jurrah and Ziebell are different players, but at the end of the day, Jurrah’s going to get more bodies in the crowd.

    I wouldnt call Taylor a hack

  80. 79: Taylor’s quite a useful tap ruckman, but nobody in the AFL concedes more frees against, and Taylor just comes across as being really unintelligent and brutish.

  81. Josh Barnstable says

    I would, and he’s a dirty player.

    Kepler isn’t that bad.

  82. Steve Healy says

    yeah, he’s a good tap ruckman, thats what he’s in the team for, so you cant compare him to the likes of Oakley-Nicholls, Hislop, McMahon and Laycock

  83. Steve Healy says

    kepler Bradley’s improved, he had a quite good 2009

  84. Josh Barnstable says

    Hislop is a good player too.

  85. He’s no Hamish McIntosh though.

    I’m saying this because at the beginning of last season in Supercoach, Kepler was $366,000. Hamish was $27,000 cheaper than Kepler. While every Supercoach with half a brain went for Hamish and reaped the benefits, Kevin Sheedy, with his outrageous love of certain players like Kepler (and Courtney Johns), went with his heart and not his head.

  86. Steve Healy says

    he couldnt hit the side of a barn

  87. Josh Barnstable says

    86: You sayin he couldn’t hit the side of ME?

    85: I’ve got a tough decision to make after reading my Black Book today. Do i trade out Big H for Dean Cox or not?

  88. 78- Toovey?
    HAHAHHAHAHAHAHA lmao about time Adam

  89. I haven’t even read the little black book yet. I wouldn’t recommend Dean Cox this year.

    I’m looking forward to driving past Dani’s school tomorrow. (in a bus)

  90. Steve Healy says

    85: That’s just racist Josh

  91. Josh Barnstable says

    89: No offence Danni, but your school didn’t impress me at all. I would say my school has better facilities than yours, but i only saw it from the front.

  92. Josh Barnstable says

    Just looked on Ben Nason’s Facebook to see if he replied to any of those concerned fans. He didn’t.

    I also looked on Adam Thomson’s page since he got a bad knock on the weekend, no one showed any worry for him though lol.

  93. 91- lol its much nicer inside

  94. I’m concerned about Adam Thomson, I don’t think he’s that bad.

    Matt White has regressed in the past couple of years though.

  95. Steve Healy says

    I don’t think I’ve ever gone past your school Danni, I dont like to venture through weedy suburbs like Coburg, haha only joking

  96. I’ve never been past De La Salle, I bet that has ace facilities.

  97. Damian Watson says

    The only time I’ve ever been to Coburg is when we try to reach the Hume Highway on the way to Sydney of Canberra, until they built that bypass.

    I have school photos tomorrow!

  98. Damian Watson says

    Sorry that should say Sydney or Canberra.

  99. Steve Healy says

    Hmm our facilities are all right, I wouldn’t say ace compared to some other schools in the area

  100. 97- rofl nawwwwwwwww Damo!!!

    (steve dont u dare start with the pizza)

  101. Steve Healy says

    Damo, do you travel alot? Cos it seems like you’ve been everywhere

  102. Josh Barnstable says

    Looking on Jack Riewoldt’s facebook, interesting..Angus Graham makes some pretty harsh remarks about Raines and Brown.

  103. Steve Healy says

    The fab 5 are like a a pizza with five equal slives, we’re all equal

  104. Steve Healy says

    He’s from Tasmania Josh, they both are actually

  105. Damian Watson says

    Well I’ve been to every state or territory in Australia except WA.

    I haven’t been overseas yet, until I go to Fiji in June, which means I’m going to miss a couple of weeks of footy!

  106. Damian Watson says

    I sitll haven’t been to Waaia yet though!

  107. steve I can tell u our lockers are huge compared to yours according to my cousin that goes to ur school.

    damo, im comming with you!

  108. Josh Barnstable says

    I’ve been to every capital city except Darwin, Perth and Hobart.

    Steve, the Fab 5 is dead. :|

  109. Josh Barnstable says

    106: Come to Waaia on your way to Fiji!

  110. 109- rofl

  111. Josh Barnstable says

    Hey, does anyone agree with me that Angus Graham will be the poster-boy for the AFL in a couple of years?

  112. Steve Healy says

    Thats a shame Damo, hopefully you can get on the internet there.

    I’d say we’re the Fab 6 at the moment

  113. Josh Barnstable says

    Sensational 6 featuring Jeff and Dom.

  114. 111-…hell no

  115. Damian Watson says

    111- probably not

    nawww Danni I wish you could lol.

    lol I must go to Waaia someday, it’ll be on my things to do before I die list.

    Port Arthur was much better and scarier than Hobart.

  116. 115- nawww i know!!
    we would have so much fun!!
    traveling buddy!!! :)

  117. We should all take photos of our schools.

    What’s that about Angus’s comments on Raines and Brown? I’m interested Josh.

  118. Josh Barnstable says

    I’m sure Waaia will be having a big function that may drag you towards there. Last year they had Kerry O’Keefe, the year before Anthony Stevens, Denis Pagan and Glenn Archer..

  119. Hang on Josh, I think I found the comment you’re referring to.

  120. Damian Watson says

    Oh yeah that reminds me, Adam a match will be played this weekend I think at Eltham with Glenn Archer and Adam Simpson on opposing sides.

    lol Kerry O’Keefe has the best laugh, not sure if I want to meet Denis Pagan though.

  121. Yeah Damo I read about that, anyone else going? Barney?

  122. Josh Barnstable says

    How about you two travel to Waaia? Haha

    117: This was the conversation:

    Adam Pattison: raines would have backed u up shedwards he goes to war, poor bloke has gone to war with injury this year and has fought a losing battle, but not once has he turned up his toes and chucked it in, bloody great lesson to all of us i reckon

    Angus Graham: all us young blokes stick together unlike raines and brown who think their 2 good 2 hang with any of us young fellas……earth has gravity so if u want to rate and be swords go 2 the moon where u might fit in more.

    He’s probably only joking around but yeah..

    I seriously thought Danni would diieee at Graham’s pics.

  123. is DEAN gonna be there???????

  124. 122- nope..hell nope

  125. Damian Watson says

    Dean is at Port Adelaide no Danni, to see him you have to blend in with the wharfies lol.

  126. I’ve heard Angus is a bit of a metro in terms of the way he dresses.

  127. metro….so he dresses nice but hes not hot.

    …yeah i know… :(
    i hope he takes over at port.

  128. DEAN <3 :)

  129. Josh Barnstable says

    126: Whaaa?

    Nah i’m not going to that thing..

    If anyone’s interested, that’s the Waaia footy ground. Like 3km from my house, i’ve kicked quite a few goals from that end.

  130. I still cnt believe how much Adam looks like Pendles!! Its so cute :)

  131. Damian Watson says

    Josh who is that stand named after?

  132. Steve Healy says

    Looks like a pretty good ground Josh, even though ive seen it on google maps before

  133. Josh Barnstable says

    131: I don’t think it has a name Damo, i guess you could call it the ‘Old blokes stand around a fire drinking beer and watching the footy’ stand.

  134. Steve Healy says

    But it says Bob something stand

  135. Bob Bow….Stand

  136. lmaoo stalker bob.
    Josh if u still have candy on facebook leave her a message saying
    ‘Hello stalker bob”

  137. Damian Watson says

    Yeah thats what I noticed but the last name is obscured cause of the goal post.

  138. Josh Barnstable says

    136: …Why?

  139. lol cos she wants to get that on her year 12 jumper. lmaoo

  140. Steve Healy says

    Bob Du.. (Cut off by goal post) stand

  141. Josh Barnstable says

    137: Hmm, trying to think of a Bob that’s famous with Waaia. I’ll ask Dad tomorrow. Should be renamed the Barnstable stand :)

  142. Steve Healy says

    its funny how a barrel is leaning against the fence behind the goals lol

  143. Damian Watson says

    You already have a shrine at your school Josh, what else do you want? lol

  144. 143- naww Damo AHHAHAHA

  145. Steve Healy says

    I’m suprised that there isnt an Anthony Stevens stand

  146. You’ve probably been to that ground umpteen times and you never noticed the name on the stand?

    What sort of a name is Candy? Who would name their daughter after an American word for lollies?

  147. Josh Barnstable says

    Bob Ducat!

  148. Steve Healy says

    yeah Candy is such a weird name, its funny cos shes also got a realyl weird surname (not saying thats a bad thing)

  149. Josh Barnstable says

    142: That’s a bin Steve.

    143: Hahaha.

  150. Josh Barnstable says

    148: Everyone has a strange last name…lookin at you Danni..

  151. lol well Adam we have 2 Candys at my school so its common!

  152. 148: Imagine if her name was Candy Kane…

  153. lol Josh ur surname is the bomb!

  154. 152- thats YEAR 7 joke old! lmaoo

  155. Everyone ALWAYS misspells my last name – i have a basketball trophy with my name engraved on it “ADAM BULLMAN” and in the school magazine last year I was Adam Bullmana.

  156. Josh Barnstable says

    152: Hahaha.

  157. Steve Healy says

    Danni’s lebanese, of course she’s gonna have a non-english name

  158. Josh Barnstable says

    155: I’m gonna call you Bull Man.

  159. Steve Healy says

    My last name is always mispelt “Healey”

  160. The surname Barnstable would never suit someone living in the city. Although there’s a family 2 houses away from me called Barns, and they would have dinner at the Barns Table.

  161. 155- lmaoooo naww poor Pendles!

    157- true that Steve.

  162. Steve Healy says

    but then again, thats a surname too, Rhys Healey is proof

  163. Steve Healy says


  164. Were your parents born in Lebanon Danni, or were you born there too? Is Eid an unusual name here, or is it like Smith is here?

  165. Josh Barnstable says

    159: Rhys Healey?

  166. Steve Healy says

    How can you not know who Rhys Healey is!

  167. 165: See 162

  168. Josh Barnstable says

    164: Smith is pretty uncommon in footy these days. Jesse Smith and Josh Smith are the only Smith’s in AFL i think.

  169. Steve some people here might not know who Rhys Healey is. I’m sure most people don’t know who David Gourdis is.

  170. Josh Barnstable says

    166: No i started typing that comment, then forgot to send it while i was looking at FB and by the time i sent it that joke had already been established.

  171. Damian Watson says

    Speaking of unusual surnames, Dale Begg-Smith won a silver medal today! which is good considering it is the Winter Olympics and you basically have to pull off a Bradbury to win a Gold medal.

  172. 164-
    dad born there
    mum born here
    me born here.

  173. According to Gigs’ stats section in the 2008 Almanac, a player called Smith has played in every VFL/AFL season since 1897.

    Oh sorry Josh if I misinterpreted whatyou were saying

  175. Josh Barnstable says

    David Gourdis is too overrated, many Richmond fans have said he is the next big thing for the Tigers’ backline, and after Saturday’s performance i can’t see him getting a spot with Luke McGuane and Kel Moore.

  177. Steve Healy says

    I thought David Gourdis went ok

  178. Josh Barnstable says crap.

  179. Damian Watson says

    Anyway cya guys, I’m off.

  180. Steve Healy says

    cya Daymo

  181. 175: Many Richmond fans say HE’S GOING TO BE THE NEXT BIG THING for the Tiger’s backline after a 73 point loss? Bloody hell, thats a bit optimistic! How many is “many Richmond fans”? One complete idiot on SFF? Gourdis was probably one of Richmond’s better players, but I think he’s more of a forward than a defender.

  182. lol steve wanna hear something cool?
    i wanna have my 21st b’day on a big boat!!

  183. Josh Barnstable says

    181: No, i’ve read in profiles of him that he is expected to take the roll of a key-position spot in the backline, and he’s been on the list since 2007 is it?

  184. Steve Healy says

    Invite Jack Anthony, and it might be a remake of Titanic Danni, lol.

  185. No he was taken in the 2008 pre-season draft, he was on the senior list, then the rookie list in 2009 and is still a rookie now.

  186. Josh Barnstable says

    Alright, whatever. Can you tell me who Warren Benjamin is?

  187. I still cant believe Richmond got rid of Silvester!

  188. 184 – :( “JACKKKKKK JACKKKKKKK”

  189. Will that boat be a birthday present for you Danni?

  190. 186: Warren Benjamin is an Aboriginal player on your list, looks absolutely nothing like Benjamin Warren.

  191. 187: Silvester was an Atticusing hack!

  192. no he wasn’t he played a few good games in your backline

  193. Josh Barnstable says

    I thought Silvester showed promise.

    Was talking to Michael earlier, he said he can’t help us with his AFL membership cards for getting better priced tickets and what not, so yeah it’ll be standard cost for Sunday.

  194. 189- LMAOO NO! what would i do with a massive boat. im not talking about a small talking a big boat with a dancefloor and food and stuff. lmaoo


  195. Are you having a laugh Steve? He was slow, couldn’t kick, looked lost whenever he had the ball and was only a good player against Coburg standard forwards.

  196. 195- ben Reid any one?

  197. Josh Barnstable says

    What is so funny about Atticus, Atticus? I read up to Chapter 3 today in English and so far haven’t found anything amusing.

  198. 197- its in the movie

  199. Josh Barnstable says

    We’re watchin that tomorrow! :|

  200. It’s just a funny name. It also sounds like a Harry Potter spell designed to teleport you into the upper room of your house that’s filled with old junk.
