Game notes: The Tigers could end the Hawks’ finals charge once and for all on Sunday and every September-bound team will be watching in anticipation. Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson has manufactured a magnificent revival from 1-5, throwing the magnets around and getting the best out of Jack Gunston, James Sicily and Taylor Duryea in new roles. But with eight wins and one draw, his team must win its remaining four games to stay in the hunt. Richmond (12-6) sits fourth and starts round 20 with a one-match buffer to protect. The Tigers have structural issues in attack they are dealing with, but have won three matches on the trot. Damien Hardwick’s men are winning ugly when they need to, with superstar midfielder – and new Brownlow Medal favourite – Dustin Martin in unrivalled form after his 11th game this season with 30 possessions or more against the Suns in round 19.
Hutta’s Tip: Richmond by 15 points.
