WHERE AND WHEN: UTAS, Saturday, April 28, 7.25pm AEST
The Hawks are depleted and with defender James Sicily set to miss through suspension again, would seem vulnerable. But at least they have a complete midfield arsenal to throw at St Kilda, with Tom Mitchell dodging his own match review bullet and evergreen Shaun Burgoyne expected back to add some experience. Perhaps he can address the dreadful first quarters that have plagued Hawthorn this year. The Saints showed tremendous pluck to eke out the draw against the Giants and kept on coming against one of the flag favourites, but their conversion remains an issue. The Hawks are generally hard to beat in Tassie, but the venue won’t faze St Kilda, which should have won the game there in 2016 and easily did so last year.
