SEN | Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson says Geelong are “not that good” and that his side was “terribly poor” in last week's 61-point thumping.
Hawks bounced back with an upset 32-point win over Richmond on Thursday night after Clarkson described his midfield as “fourth-rate” following the Round 2 loss to the Cats.
The four-time premiership coach was delighted with Hawthorn’s response against the reigning premiers.
“It was a tough week because we were so disappointed with our performance. We have a proud group and a proud club,” Clarkson told reporters post-game.
