Blake Hardwick (pectoral) unlikely to play in Round 2
Meanwhile, Hardwick has recovered from the pectoral muscle injury that left him out of round one, but with little contact since the seasons suspension, he will also be questionable to play in round two.
O’Meara and Hardwick will be given until the very last moment to be ready for the game, but Clarkson has labelled it as a “significant challenge” for both to get up for the game.
23 year old Hardwick appeared on AFL Fantasy radars with a 2019 average of 72.
He has increased his average every year and could be an attainable trade target in both AFL Fantasy redraft and Keeper Leagues should he push towards 80 as a defender.
