Game notes: Add the Lions to the list of teams itching to have a crack at the Hawks after years of being lorded over by the men in brown and gold. Lions coach Chris Fagan will have a plan to beat Hawthorn after nearly a decade there as a key football staffer, but the question is whether he has the personnel to execute it, and the signs are emerging that Brisbane is starting to flag after a bright start to the season. If the Hawks of last week turn up then they should get their third win of the year, but we thought that a fortnight ago and they were walloped by the Saints. In 2017 it is all in the head for Hawthorn.
Thommo’s Tip: Hawthorn by 24 points.
