Hawthorn has won by 53 points.
The Suns did not kick a goal in the second or third quarters as the Hawks broke the game open.
Goal-kicking was horrible all day with the sides kicking 18.31 collectively.
Paul Puopolo – who nearly missed the game to be at the birth of his child – spoke to 3AW in the rooms after the game.
“They said I was all good to go, so I told Clarko: I’m coming down, book me a flight!”

Hawthorn has warmed into the game, taking a 13-point lead into the main break.

Hawthorn enters this clash in 9th place, but with a chance to keep some heat on the Top 4.
The Hawks will be just one win off fourth-placed Port Adelaide if they can get past the Suns.
But Gold Coast will be out to atone for last week’s devastating, last-gasp loss to St Kilda.
And rest assured – they’ll be finishing strongly today!
Gold Coast has scored a total of two points from its last four final quarters. #AFLSunsSaints
