Jack Harmes courage - and vomit - at the MCG last weekend spoke wonders about Melbournes desire to finish the AFL season with a bang.Harmes epitomised the phrase body on the line in round 19, when he was crunched in a marking contest by Gold Coasts Kade Kolodjashnij.The 20-year-old, who copped an inadvertent knee to the midriff, spewed as trainers helped him off the field.I had a bit of a chunder but other than that I was fine. It just knocked the wind out of me, Harmes told AAP.I didnt actually know the other bloke was coming.Luckily I didnt get knocked out so I was able to go back on.The expectation every year is that the performance of clubs in the bottom half of the ladder will drop off once they tumble out of finals contention.The Demons turned the ball over frequently in their last-start win over the Suns, when they got home by two points after Tom Lynch missed an after-the-siren shot.But their effort and desperation couldnt be questioned.Harmes, who was nomiinated for the Rising Star award earlier this year, expects more of the same in the final four rounds of the season.ddddddddddddMelbourne confront triple reigning premiers Hawthorn at the MCG on Saturday, with Harmes saying belief wont be an issue for the underdogs.Its definitely a real test for us, well see where were at as a footy club, the midfielder said.If we can win the contests and use the ball better, we should go really close to winning.Were starting to see all the players mature a bit.
