Both the Hawks and Pies are coming off disappointing 2017 campaigns and shape as the two of the more difficult clubs to handicap heading into the new season. What is clear about the Pies is that they’ll need close to their best 22 available most weeks if they’re to snap their four-year finals drought and, sadly, they’ll again be missing some key players this week. Not so the Hawks, who will be close to full strength and given the difficult few weeks to follow, the same nightmare 0-4 start from last year looms large again if they don’t win this. The Pies bat deeper through the midfield and are the better clearance team, but the Hawks have more talent inside both 50-metre arcs and the return of Ben Stratton, James Frawley and more than likely, Cyril Rioli, helps considerably.

Schwarz Suggests: Hawks by 10 pts

  1. Hawthorn v Collingwood at the MCG, 7.25pm AEDT


    Hawthorn: Taylor Duryea, Daniel Howe, Liam Shiels, Cyril Rioli
    Collingwood: Sam Murray, Taylor Adams, James Aish, Travis Varcoe


  2. With Ryder looking like he may miss a few.

    I made a last minute change to Big Mason Cox at F5.

    English R3.

    It might back fire ,but I do sleep better with ruck cover.

    This also means I can’t loophole Dusty.

    T Mitch is my C tonight.


  3. Any idea how bad O’ Connors ankle is? My only option is to trade for Fogarty(Geel)
    Am I better off
    TU Keep O’connor he’ll be back next week and Fogartys JS is suspect or
    TD trade O’Connor not sure when he’s back


  4. Daniel Howe’s ankle injury looked nasty. Fingers crossed for his sake it’s just rolled, but to be honest, I will be very surprised if it’s not broken. It bent at an angle at which ankles are just not meant to bend.


  5. Bucks: ‘so, you’re a natural footballer who’s starred as a junior and played your entire career in one position?’

    Footballer: ‘yes, that’s right…’

    Bucks: ‘I can see you not playing that position’.
