Game Review

Already missing Gleeson and Glascott, the Blues suffered another casualty when Gary Ayres deliberately lined up Wayne Johnston and sent him from the ground with broken ribs after he slid into him with his knees. In a day of windy and greasy football, the Hawks made the most of the conditions and won convincingly.
