The Hawthorn Football Club's 2013 season is its 89th season in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Overview[edit]

After losing the 2012 AFL Grand Final against the Sydney Swans, Hawthorn participated in the 2012 AFL Draft and traded Tom Murphy and Clinton Young to the Gold Coast and Collingwood respectively via the free agency system. The club also picked up Jonathan Simpkin from Geelong. During the main trade period, the Hawks picked up former Western Bulldogs backman Brian Lake and Sydney Swans forward Matthew Spangher and offloaded Stephen Gilham to Greater Western Sydney.[1]

On a cool, wet and windy afternoon, the Hawks started with high pressure intensity that the Dockers are renowned for, and they led by 23 points at half-time after restricting their opponents to just one goal. Gunston kicked three of Hawthorn's five goals in the first half and finished with four. Lake did a superb job in restricting Freo skipper Matthew Pavlich while Hodge and Birchall were rock solid across half-back.
