Jordan Lewis admits Hawthorn are still a work in progress this season but the three-time premiership star remains confident the Hawks are slowly building towards their best football.
Alastair Clarkson’s side accounted for Adelaide on Thursday night to move into fifth position on the ladder with a 7-4 record but the performance didn’t impress Hawthorn legend Jason Dunstall, who labelled it “pretty average” and accused them of trying to play “too pretty” on Triple M.
Lewis agreed there was still plenty of work in front of the Hawks as they look to regain their best form.
“Jason’s been involved with this club and this group for over 10 years now, so he would understand if we’re playing well or we’re not playing well,” Lewis said.
“He’s probably one of our biggest critics and he’s always, or nearly always, right.
“I would say that we’ve played some good football this year but probably not as consistently as we would have liked.”
