SUMMARY

The final match of the weekend promises to be one of the most intriguing, with the Suns and Hawks both desperate to break their ducks. Gold Coast was abysmal against GWS last weekend, and a win over the Hawks would ease the pressure on coach Rodney Eade. The Suns have started horribly in both matches and need to show a lift in intensity, particularly through the midfield where they have a plethora of quality personnel. Hawthorn has been competitive in both its losses, but looked less potent than in previous years. Tom Mitchell has fitted in nicely, as has Jaeger O’Meara, who returns to Metricon Stadium. It won’t just be a matter of who wants it more, but which team can execute better, and based on the opening fortnight, Hawthorn should have the edge.

  7. Just got home from work and checked score before watching replay. I think this will be the first Hawks’ match I haven’t watched in years!
