The Hawks have piled on the meat pies today at home (TG Milner) with a win over the Western Sydney Magpies.
The Hawks got off to a dream start, with a short left edge pass onto Second Rower Matthew Ryan to cross over for the first 4 points.
The left edge seemed unstoppable with Fullback Bradley Cousins stepping on the inside of Captain Mitchell Gray to receive a pop pass to cross for the Hawks second try to add 4 points. A continual two-minute left edge punishment propelled the Hawks a further 8 points before half time.
Second half saw the Magpies came out capitalising the ruck to force the Hawks to make a mistake which lead them to their first points of the game.
A few Magpie handling mistakes gave the Hawks an opportunity to run riot with Captain Mitchell Gray crossing for his second try followed by Mason Ward scoring a personal double and Jamin Williams finishing the game to end the Hawks on 38-6 victory.
The Hawks are in action on Sunday from 1pm at home, TG Milner. Sydney Shield coming up against Penrith Brothers and Ron Massey taking on Blacktown Workers.
The 2022 campaign off to a flying start!
