MYSTERY still surrounds the final make-up of Hawthorn's team to face Geelong on Easter Monday at the MCG. 

The Hawks have yet to submit their final side, with coach Alastair Clarkson naming a 25-man squad on Thursday night, which included the additions of Billy Hartung, James Sicily, Blake Hardwick, Tim O'Brien and Daniel Howe. 

Teia Miles was dumped from the Hawks' side that was belted by Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium last Sunday.

Boom recruit Jaeger O'Meara is also out with knee soreness, leaving potentially three more omissions from the Hawks' round three side.

None of the Hawks' five possible inclusions played in the Box Hill's Good Friday VFL clash against Footscray. 

Midfielder Jonathan O'Rourke made his return from a hamstring injury, playing three-quarters of the game, before being benched in the final term as a precaution. 

The former No.2 draft pick had 25 disposals, four inside-50s and a goal assist at three-quarter time, and appeared to be moving really well.

Alongside O'Rourke, ruckman Jack Fitzpatrick was also impressive, taking several contested marks and kicking two goals. 

Midfielder Dallas Willsmore had 31 touches, six inside-50s and kicked a crucial goal in the final term, while Kade Stewart's pressure was outstanding with the young Hawk laying nine tackles. 

After missing round three with a hip injury, Bulldogs forward Stewart Crameri also returned in the Whitten Oval clash. 

The ex-Bomber played just the first half, before being managed but didn't have much of an impact, kicking just the one goal in the second quarter. 

Axed premiership players Caleb Daniel and Shane Biggs were slow to start, but improved as the game wore on.

Biggs was solid across half-back without being outstanding, while Daniel fared slightly better, pushing his claim for a senior recall.

Young Bulldog Patrick Lipinski, who was taken at pick No.28 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft, was impressive with four goals. 

Fellow draftee Fergus Greene also contributed solidly with three goals.

Ruckman Tim English, midfielder Lukas Webb and Mitch Honeychurch were among Footscray's best as they lost to the Hawks by two points.
