GAME REVIEW: Port Adelaide flogs Hawthorn

Charlie Dixon was the hero in a 51-point win for Port Adelaide over the Hawks. The win takes their percentage to a league-high 148.6.

The match was well and truly over by half-time, at which point the Hawks had recorded their lowest ever half-time score (0.3 (3)).

But Hawthorn did manage to find a few goalkickers in the second half.

After the game, we spoke with Luke Hodge and Sam Powell-Pepper – audio highlights below.

Daniel Harford’s votes:

Ahead of tonight’s match, Hawthorn assistant Brett Ratten says the Hawks put themselves under pressure by starting at 0-4 this season. According to Ratten, one of the key match-up will be Ben McEvoy against Paddy Ryder in the ruck.

Speaking about his future coaching aspirations, Ratten says ‘never say never’, but it would have to be the right fit for him and his family.
