Jack Gunston booted five goals in a key attacking role for the Hawks.

Gunston made his name as a forward, but has spent a lot of time roaming the half-back line in the last 18 months.

He told 3AW Football he doesn’t know where he’ll play from one week to the next.

Tim Lane: Are you a forward for life now?

Gunston: I’d like to say so!

“I just go week to week,” he said.

“I’m in the dark as much as you!”

FULL TIME

Hawthorn has won an epic by four points.

In a game of wide momentum swings, it was the Hawks who finished with their noses in front.

Travis Colyer gave the Bombers a glimmer of hope with a goal in the dying seconds, but the Hawks stood firm.

HALF TIME

Hawthorn lead by 11 points at the main break.

It’s been a seesawing match in which both sides have seen periods of ascendancy.

=====

LATE CHANGES 

Essendon has made two late changes today.

Matt Guelfi (ill) and Matt Dea have been withdrawn, with Ben McNiece and Travis Colyer coming into the 22.

Dea was concussed last week against Sydney, but the Bombers say he passed all protocols in that regard.

Hawthorn is unchanged.
