Game Chat – Hawthorn vs Essendon

Written by Thommo on August 4 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: MCG Saturday, August 4, 1.45pm AEST


With great rivals meeting and plenty at stake, the MCG on Saturday afternoon is the place to be. That’s particularly so for the Hawks, who have won five from seven there this year, although perhaps not for the Bombers, who have won just one from six visits. Still, with eight wins from their last 10 matches, the Bombers are one of the most in-form teams in the competition and their run and spread will cause headaches for Hawthorn. A key for the Hawks will be to win the clearances and control possession because once pacy Dons such as Conor McKenna and Adam Saad get hold of the ball they can move it the length of the field, as they did against the tiring Swans last week and get the scoreboard ticking over. The Hawks are the fourth highest scoring team in the AFL this year and the Dons will likely need to kick more than 100 points to beat them.


R7, 2018, Hawthorn 13.12 (90) d Essendon 10.7 (67) at the MCG
R1, 2017, Essendon 17.14 (116) d Hawthorn 12.19 (91) at the MCG
R12, 2016, Hawthorn 23.13 (151) d Essendon 6.7 (43) at Etihad Stadium
R13, 2015, Hawthorn 16.18 (114) d Essendon 11.10 (76) at the MCG
R2, 2015, Essendon 12.6 (78) d Hawthorn 11.10 (76) at the MCG

Thommo’s Tip: Essendon by 12 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.
