‘Moorey’ & ‘Switta’ Make Second Cut

Andrew Moore has joined Sam Switkowski in the VFL representative side’s 27-man squad to face a similarly assembled WAFL outfit.

An initial 40-man squad had already been announced, with one further cut to come in order to finalise the 23-man team that will take the field at North Port Oval on May 27.

The match, which will be broadcast live on Channel 7, brings together a host of top talent from across the two state leagues, with the Hawks pair rewarded for their terrific early season form.

Moore has won inclusion on the back of a brilliant – albeit delayed – start to his 2017 campaign, returning from a medial ligament strain suffered in pre-season in his side’s win over Williamstown in round three.

Having overcome that setback, Moore showed selectors what he’s capable of with a best afield display in Box Hill’s come from behind victory against Richmond on Sunday.

He accrued 33 touches, including 5 inside fifties, and booted 2 crucial goals to ensure the Hawks remained unbeaten through five rounds.

Likewise, Sam Switkowski has won his place despite an interrupted season. Having played in round one, ‘Switta’ sat out rounds two and three before returning with 2 goals against Geelong and an important role in the Hawks’ win over the Tigers.

Known for his second efforts, insatiable work-rate and eye for goal, Switkowski shapes as a potential key to victory.

In further good news, Hawks defensive coach Ricky Petterd will be an assistant to Justin Plapp for the match.

The final team will be announced following a two week training block.
