Triple M commentator Danny Frawley has labelled Geelong forward Tom Hawkins a “big sook”, and called for the two-time premiership player to be dropped, following the Cats’ loss to Sydney on Friday night.
Geelong slumped to sixth on the AFL ladder, after two successive losses.
Frawley questioned Hawkins’ position in the side, following a largely unimpressive season, kicking just 33 goals in 14 matches, averaging 2.4 per game.
“There’s only one course of action and that’s to send him back to the VFL,” Frawley said.
“Don’t get me wrong, Tom’s best form won them a Grand Final, but you’re talking about a guy that played his third game, and let’s not take anything away from this guy, Allir Allir, he was outstanding, he was terrific, his closing speed (but) he’s playing his third game, let’s get some physicality into him.
“If I was Chris Scott, I go to Tom Hawkins, you’re playing on a kid that’s playing his third game, is there any chance you get him in the goal-square and give him a bit of man-to-man combat, within the rules, and be a bit forceful.
“He’s playing like a big sook.
“I want to see some fight from Tommy Hawkins, I want to see some aggression, bring the ball to ground, maybe give a couple of free kicks away, but show some fight.”
