Busselton’s Damon Greaves was a late inclusion for the Hawthorn side that faced Fremantle at the weekend and made a good case for continued selection, with a strong display across half-back. Despite playing one of the better games of his short career against Port Adelaide the week before, Greaves was dropped from the side to face the Dockers in Launceston, but then called up as a late injury replacement for fellow defender Blake Hardwick. The 21-year-old had his side’s fourth highest disposal tally in the 16.12 (108) to 6.10 (46) defeat and was a significant contributor on an otherwise difficult day for the Hawks. His 20 touches included 12 kicks, as he disposed of the footy at 85 per cent. For Fremantle, none of the club’s three South West products was involved for the senior side, with Connor Blakely not used as the medical substitute and Ethan Hughes and Tobe Watson sent home to play WAFL. Hughes made his first appearance at any level since injuring his shoulder in the round seven western derby loss and looks set for a return to the senior side soon. The 26-year-old had 11 touches on limited minutes for the Thunder in their win over East Fremantle. Watson also pushed his case for a return to the Dockers with a productive 22-disposal display which included 15 kicks.
