Big weekend gone & didn’t get around to posting on the biggest AFL finals series thriller so far. The Hawks JUST getting over the line against a rampaging Port Adelaide. What a cliff hanger this game was, and if Port had kicked straighter – just once – they’d have got it. In true cut-throat finals fashion, this game was brutal from the first minute. Underdogs Port had come to play, throwing everything at it, bodies on the line – one player, head over the ball & knocked out mid air, legs limp on the way down like a rag doll. Players on both sides, and particularly Port, slammed into packs kamikaze-style relentlessly throughout the game. In the final moments Hawthorn, battered & bruised, had run out of legs, clinging to life by a thread (thanks to Port’s inaccurate kicking). Here are the final 2 minutes of play –

Fires out.
