HAWTHORN had a dozen names on the list yesterday of men not available owing to injury. Headed by the coach and captain, Dan Minogue, who broke down in the first game, the list in- cludes Jackson (a former captain), Burke, the present captain, Splatt, the crack half-back,     Drake, Hyde, McCashney, Donovan, Calwell, Gill, Stewart and Ennis. Such a list of casualties makes it hard to manage a team, but Hawthorn still stands to its guns. Tomorrow Bullen, from   Doncaster, Corry from Rupanyup, Williams, and Donnellan will fill the vacancies caused by accident

last week.
