Game notes: After spending the whole week on the Gold Coast, third-placed Geelong returns to more familiar surrounds having easily accounted for the Brisbane Lions by 85 points. Hawthorn, meanwhile, is fresh from a pulsating draw with Greater Western Sydney in Launceston, just a week after the Cats themselves couldn’t be separated with the premiership fancies. Midfield generals Patrick Dangerfield and Tom Mitchell will be worth the price of admission alone, with the latter setting a new record last week when he became the first player to collect 30 or more touches in 12 successive games. While the Cats will start favourites in Saturday’s clash, the 13th-placed Hawks will be fighting to remain in the finals hunt and have the potential to cause a major headache, as they honour former skipper and club great Luke Hodge in his 300-game milestone.
Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 12 points.
