East Wagga-Kooringal veteran Chris Gordon believes there’s plenty of work to be done as the Hawks prepare to keep their premiership dream alive.
Gordon downplayed his role in last weekend’s 32-point elimination final win over CSU Bushpigs, branding the game a solid effort from the team and highlighting a few areas of concern for his side in the process.
“I didn’t think I played that well, to be honest. I wouldn’t say it was one of my best games but I think we put in a good team effort in the end,” Gordon said.
“We need to improve a few things and I think we definitely need to get better at holding on to the ball and retaining possession.
“When we got control of the footy against CSU, we were really good but we could go a lot better if we hang on to it more.”

The versatile Hawk is nevertheless taking a positive approach to Sunday’s upcoming semi final, saying there’s plenty to like about EWK’s newest crop.
“Blokes like Keigan King have been amazing all year for us,” Gordon said.
“He’s been running around down in the forward line and gets through tonnes of work.
“(Keigan) applies himself really well and Sam McCready’s been good since coming into the side as well.
“There’s plenty of blokes like that and we’ve got a young bunch with plenty of speed.”
