    Match preview:

    Sunday arvo football takes us to the home of footy, as Hawthorn host Melbourne in a potentially mouth-watering clash at the ‘G. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match, starting from 3:20pm AEST.

    After missing the finals last year, there were a lot of alarm bells around this new iteration of the Hawks, but as Hawthorn does, they’ve begun to prove the pundits wrong.

    They’re 2-1, with wins against the Pies and Cats under their belts, and their only blight being last weekend’s loss to the premiers.

    The Demons, too, are 2-1, but are honestly a pretty middling 2-1 side. A loss to Geelong and wins against Brisbane and North are on the board, but they were challenged at various levels of severity in that latter pair of results.

    So, all this adds up to a big, big clash this afternoon. Hawthorn’s on-ball brigade has been stellar this year – their two biggest names, Mitchell and O’Meara, have been in great touch, and Ben McEvoy is thriving, albeit a little under the radar.

    They’re also gaining James Sicily back from suspension, which is a important in for their defensive structure.

    The Dees, despite question marks over their form, have been well served by the likes of Jesse Hogan, Christian Petrracca (finally providing some great, relatively consistent form!) and, of course, Max Gawn.

    Gawn versus Ben McEvoy will probably make or break this game, whilst the Demons’ midfield will also have to be in great touch to overcome the Hawks powerful midfield.

    A few changes for both sides, with Hawks dropping three: Kaidan Brand, Will Langford and, surprisingly, Ryan Burton have been dropped.

    Irishman Conor Glass, Sicily and David Mirra (debuting) will all feature. The Demons have lost an ill Dom Tyson, and selected Angus Brayshaw for the first time this season.

    Prediction
    Tough one to tip, really. The Hawks have been in good form in the early stages of this season, whilst the Demons are also in pretty good nick.

    Agonising decision, and it’ll probably be a match that ends up with a few points in it in the final stages. I’ll go Hawthorn, just.

    Hawthorn by 5 points

      This looked like a game of boys against men. Demons still have a way to go don’t they? As for Hawthorn, they continue to defy the odds.

      FULL TIME

      It’s Hawthorn prevailing by 67 points in a big, big win at the ‘G.

      Incredibly disappointing day for the Demons, who managed a measly one goal after quarter time.

      Thanks for joining me today.

      Hawthorn: 18.7 (115)
      Melbourne: 6.12 (48)
