Hawthorn has come back from last year’s grand final loss with a 15-point win over Fremantle at the MCG. Jack Gunston, not Lance Franklin led the Hawks to victory with a superb four-goal performance in the 11.11 (77) to 8.14 (62) win.
In front of a huge crowd of 100,007, the Hawks looked good for most of the day before being put under pressure by an inspired third quarter from the Dockers. In the end, experience told as Hawthorn held off a late charge from the Dockers to seal their 11th VFL/AFL flag.
