Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson backs shorter half-time breaks in AFL games, as long as player performance is not affected


“Our whole game goes for far too long. We’ve got 30-32-minute quarters by the time you have time on and all that sort of stuff.

“Our guys are playing 100 minutes thereabouts and in some cases 110-115 every week. It’s unbelievably taxing.”

Hawks midfielder Isaac Smith is also unconcerned by the rumoured changes.

“It would have more of an impact on the coaches,” Smith told RSN.

“As a player it doesn’t worry me.”

The move, which would shift some of the onus to players when it comes to touched-off-the-boot calls only, was discussed at the AFL’s competition committee meeting in Melbourne on Tuesday.
