WHERE AND WHEN: GMHBA Stadium, Saturday, August 25, 1.45pm AEST
All eyes will be on Gary Ablett’s first game at GMHBA Stadium against the side he captained for six years as Geelong looks to book its passage to an 11th finals series in 12 years. Should Port Adelaide beat Essendon on Friday night, the Cats must defeat the Suns to play finals. Then if Melbourne loses to Greater Western Sydney on Sunday, the AFL.com.auladder predictor has an eight-goal Cats win pushing them above the Demons into seventh. Tom Hawkins needs four goals to draw level with Jack Riewoldt in the race for the Coleman which looms as a shootout across town. With 20 goals from his past three matches at home, Hawkins has a 25-minute head-start on Riewoldt’s Tigers, who meet the Bulldogs at the MCG. With one match remaining in Stuart Dew’s debut season, a number of Suns will be out to impress in order to earn fresh contracts.
