SUMMARY
The Hawks close out their Tasmanian schedule for 2016 with the first ever visit from the big-drawing Blues, ensuring a bumper crowd at their Launceston fortress. The Blues will be well schooled on what makes the Hawks tick, and their best chance to spring the upset is for Patrick Cripps and Bryce Gibbs to take charge in the midfield and get the ball moving quickly. Saturday represents a great chance for the well coached and improving Blues to measure themselves against the best team in the competition, and they will be competitive for long periods, but luck and severe favoritism from the men in white will get Hawthorn home here. Two games clear on top of the ladder, there seems no chance the Hawks will jeopardise the perfect launching pad they have built for their flag assault.

The 6 Points

1. When these teams last played Sam Mitchell was the star with 34 disposals, six tackles and three Brownlow votes. Jarryd Roughead and Jack Gunston kicked four goals each.

2. Hawthorn is ranked fourth for scoring this season, kicking 100 points per game compared to Carlton, which is ranked 17th with only 71 points per game.

3. Hawthorn has dominated Carlton over a long period, winning the last 13 matches, a club record; the Blues haven’t won since Round 6, 2005.

4. The Blues are ranked last for contested possessions after 17 games, averaging only 131.7 per game, but the Hawks are only marginally better, 14th at 135.9 per game.

5. The Hawks will be looking for their 19th consecutive win at York Park, a league record. They haven’t lost there since Round 5, 2012. Carlton will be playing for the first time in Tasmania.

6. Cyril Rioli dropped one place in the AFL Player Rankings on the weekend and is now 11th overall with 545.6 points.

  1. Already conplaining about the umpires and the game hasn’t even started yet, Motts.

    I hope we win with a free kick after the siren just to sh*t you.

    The Blues looked the better side in Q2 but couldn’t convert easy shots. The Hawks look like they’ve never played at Aurora stadium before.

  4. 10 free kicks to 5.

    The usual ones… the free kick hawthorn ones are there.

    Easy to be on top of the ladder with extra players in white.

    1. In the first quarter, the Hawks had a run of about 3-4 soft frees but since then it’s been pretty even. The Blues defenders are doing a lot of holding and pushing that is not being called while the Hawks are doing a fair bit of holding in the middle that is also not being called.
