Game notes: Noses to the grindstone this week for the Hawks, as they need to win to ensure a top-four finish. They’ll be happy to be back at the MCG after a nightmare trip to Perth, although their home ground advantage is negated when you consider that Collingwood plays there more than any club. History favours the Hawks, who have won eight straight over the Pies by an average of more than six goals. But the Magpies have been better over the last month and will back the likes of Scott Pendlebury and Adam Treloar to win enough footy through the midfield to cause the Hawks some problems.  Not enough to win the game necessarily, but to cause the three-time premiers some anxious moments.

The 6 Points

1. Cyril Rioli was the difference between the sides the last time they played, kicking five goals even though Scott Pendlebury collected the three Brownlow votes with 37 disposals and 10 tackles.

2. Both sides have struggled in clearances in 2016; Hawthorn is ranked 10th with 36.5 per game while Collingwood is equal 14th at 34.2 per game.

3. This season has been one of the lowest scoring seasons in a long time for Collingwood. Leading goal-kicker is the injured Alex Fasolo with only 25. If it stays at 25 it will be the lowest tally at Collingwood since 1954.

4. The teams have played 30 times at the MCG with 19 wins to 11. Collingwood has struggled at the MCG in 2016 winning six and losing seven.

5. The Magpies have been a strong handballing side in 2016, ranked fifth averaging 176.3 per game, compared to the Hawks in equal 14th at 158.8 handballs per game.

6. Hawthorn’s Isaac Smith will be the better-ranked Smith in this game according to the official AFL Player Ratings. He comes in at No.199 compared to Magpie Josh who is No.466.

Thommo’s tip: Hawthorn by 20 points.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.
