Ablett shrugs off boos with vintage performance


//

Geelong star Gary Ablett has shrugged off a chorus of boos from Hawthorn fans at the MCG to turn in a vintage performance on Easter Monday.

Ablett was instrumental in the Cats breaking the game open in the second quarter, taking a brilliant contested mark before converting one of the goals of the year just minutes later.

The two-time Brownlow Medallist finished with 23 disposals and three goals as he capitalised on his new forward line role in the Cats' 17. 11. (113) to 13. 12. (90) win.

Ablett, who is one of the more popular player in the league, was curiously booed all day by Hawks fans, but told Seven that he was used to the treatment.

"I reckon it happens most weeks so you just get used to it. It's good to get the win," he said.

"Honestly there's that rivalry and plenty of close matches over the years. They've obviously got a few players out.

"We knew it was going to be a high-running game and I'm just proud of the boys.

"It's always nice to kick a few goals. Obviously a bit of a different role for me this year up forward but I'm really enjoying it."

Ablett was far from the Cats' only lethal weapon up forward with former Sydney Swans star Gary Rohan playing his best game since his move to Geelong with four goals.

More to come
