Hawks should change coach: Jeff Kennett
By Roger Vaughan
20:23 AEST Mon Apr 1 2013

Former Hawthorn president Jeff Kennett wants coach Alastair Clarkson sacked at the end of this AFL season.

The Kennett Curse - Geelong's winning streak over the Hawks - reached 10 matches on Easter Monday when the Cats won another epic clash by seven points at the MCG.

Clarkson's contract runs until the end of next season, but Kennett was remarkably calling for regime change soon after the 13.15 (93) to 12.14 (86) loss to the Cats.

It was the eighth time in the streak that Geelong have won by nine points or less.

"I think we need to introduce a freshness at the club that doesn't exist at the moment because so many of the personnel have been there for a number of years," Kennett told 3AW.

"They have been listening to the same voice for too long."

Kennett, one of the AFL's most outspoken figures, resigned as Hawks president at the end of last season.

The Hawks have not beaten Geelong since their upset 2008 grand final win.

Before they next met in 2009, Kennett notoriously boasted that Geelong lacked the mental drive of his team.

Geelong coach Chris Scott and Clarkson played down the significance of the streak post-match.

But the look on Clarkson's face immediately after the final siren on Monday seemed to say "not again".

Asked if the Hawks suffered any injuries in the game, Clarkson replied: "just a bruised ego - we'll have to get rid of that pretty quickly, get it back tomorrow.

"They're a good opponent, they've been a great side and we haven't got there this time.

"We'll keep pegging away and we'll get there eventually."

Cats captain Joel Selwood was best afield, with Scott comparing his efforts to the heroics of Gary Ablett in Gold Coast's upset win on Saturday night over St Kilda.

The Hawks led by 30 points in the second term, but Clarkson felt Geelong's two late goals in the quarter were crucial.

Geelong hit the front in the third term and never gave up the lead again.

Hawthorn made a late charge with the last two goals of the match, but the Cats were able to prevail again.

"It's illogical to say that a team that was completely different in 2009 still has a hold over a team in 2013," Scott said.

"I hope our fans enjoy this for everything it's worth, because it's not going to last forever."
