Hawthorn vs Brisbane Preview

Despite Hawthorn’s accuracy against the Crows last week, they weren’t able to get the job done in a 19-point loss.

Despite leading in the majority of the crucial stats (clearances, inside 50’s and disposals), the Hawks simply weren’t efficient enough and defensively fragile against the Crows forward line.

It will be a huge end of the season and end of an era for Hawthorn and Alastair Clarkson, with news coming that Clarkson will part ways at the end of the season rather than next season as part of the coach succession plan with Sam Mitchell.

Clarkson will be desperate not to be awarded the wooden spoon in his last season at Hawthorn. They currently sit equal on points with last-placed North Melbourne.

Meanwhile, the Lions ended a two-match losing streak with a convincing 49-point triumph.

It was a game of two halves by Chris Fagan’s outfit, they found themselves behind for the entire first half and 27-points down at the main break, but a 13 goal to one second half saw them roar back into top-four contention.

With only four games remaining in the home and away season, it’s looking more likely that Brisbane will have to win all of their remaining games to finish in the top four. However, they do have a healthy percentage juxtaposed to the Power and Demons in third and fourth.

These are matches that the Lions will be looking to win comfortably to cement a spot in the top four, and I believe they will do exactly that.

Hawks vs Lions Team News

James Cousins is a certain exclusion for the Hawks with an injury. Whilst Conor Nash, Damon Greaves, Finn Maginness and Jai Newcombe have been introduced.

*Teams are yet to be reduced to 22, four omissions still need to be made from the eight-man bench.
