Hawthorn got their first win of the season last week, blowing out bottom of the table rivals North Melbourne by 41 points. It was a good response from Sam Mitchell’s men who put in arguably their worst performance of the season the week prior in their 53-point loss against the Suns.

Coming up against their easiest opponent for the season you would expect the Hawks to hit above their averages in every statistical aspect and that is what they did, with the most impressive a 19% increase of efficiency inside 50 and a 16% increase in uncontested possessions, controlling the ball and avoiding luckless and dangerous ball movement.

Sydney had plenty to work on during their bye-week in round 6 after putting in a couple of poor performances before the week off with their loss against Richmond costing them their perfect start to the season. 

Whatever was said and done by John Longmire and the coaching team at Moore Park certainly had a positive effect with the Swans coming out and looking in complete control in their 53-point win against a spirited Gold Coast side. 

The Swans took it to the new and improved Gold Cost midfield with Errol Gulden (30 disposals) and Isaac Heeney (28 disposals) touching everything between them giving perfect service to the forward line who outdid the Coast 16-5 in Marks Inside 50.
