    Match preview:

    The Hawthorn Hawks and St Kilda Saints are both desperate to get back into the winners’ circle this week, but only one of them will be able to do it.

    The Hawks have had a strong start to the 2018 AFL season, seemingly having taken a number of big steps forward after last year saw them miss finals for the first time in nearly a decade.

    On average Hawthorn are fielding the league’s second most experienced side so far in 2018, but it’s a side that does still look different in many ways from that of just two years ago.

    The Hawks have found some valuable players through unconventional methods and it has allowed them to rise up back up the ladder quickly rather than go through the traditional crumble and rebuild.

    However, their last performance was a stinker – they had no answer for North Melbourne’s pressure in the first half at Etihad Stadium last week and by the time they clicked into gear it was too late.

    St Kilda on the other it would be fair to say have had a very disappointing start to the year, though last week’s game against GWS improved their general opinion of them somewhat.

    They put in an almighty effort but still weren’t especially clean with their use of the ball or in front of goal – it cost them a win, but they at least got to settle for a draw.

    Hawthorn have lost James Sicily and Liam Shiels to suspension and injury respectively for this match and have dropped Conor Glass. Shaun Burgoyne is back from injury, James Worpel will debut, and Will Langford is also in.

    St Kilda have one change, Hunter Clark has been dropped for Jimmy Webster.

      Hawks fly past the Saints in a final quarter onslaught.

      Hawthorn have got their winning ways back with a big 35 point win over the Saints in Tasmania.

      Hawthorn 13.11.89 defeated St Kilda 7.12.54.

      A inaccurate night of kicking in what was perfect (yet dewy) conditions in Launceston saw the Hawks pour on 6 goals to 2 in the final and defeat the Saints.

      The first quarter was a tough affair from both sides with Hawthorn taking a 21 point lead after the Saints went goal less in the term. Both teams struggled in front of the goals in the first quarter with just 3 goals kicked to 11 behinds. St Kilda dominated the early going beating the Hawks in inside 50’s but the defence of the Hawks kept them from having shots at goal.

      The 2nd quarter was a complete turnaround from St Kilda who looked more composed and in control for the quarter outscoring the Hawks 3 goals to 1, Tim Membrey stole the show in the 2nd quarter missing an easy open goal before kicking his first major a few moments later. The Hawks took an 8 point lead into the 3rd quarter but it looked like they may slip behind the Saints at any time.

      The third was an arm wrestle of a quarter with St Kilda potentially taking the chocolates with a better quarter but Hawthorn still held a good margin on the Saints thanks to a late goal to Breust who finished the day with 3 goals.

      The final quarter was all Hawthorn as they put their foot on the accelerator and never looked back, Tom Mitchell who had a slow 3rd quarter finished the game strong collecting 45 disposals for the game and further strengthening his case for a Brownlow chance. Isaac Smith had one of his best games of the season kicking 4 goals and collecting 24 disposals for the game. St Kilda would be kicking themselves for their poor kicking in front of goal and letting the 4th quarter get out of control so easily.

      No major injury concerns came out of the game but Ben McEvoy was on the bench for the majority of the final quarter. No reports were made in the game in what was generally a good tough contest from both sides.

      Hawthorn faces Essendon at the MCG next week and St Kilda are up against the Demons.

      Hawks gave the Saints a sniff but the better team lifted.

      Better players for the Hawks McEvoy, Henderson, Worpel, Morrison, Duryea, Mitchell, Bruest and best on ground for mine Izzy Smith.

      Not a classic by any means but bank the 4 pts and move on.

      Goal Hawks

      Jarman Impey kicks an easy goal in the goal square and that will likely be the last score of the game.

      Less than 10 seconds remains in the game.

      That was an absolute shocker of a kick from Tim O’Brien.

      Tom Mitchell has 45 disposals for the game and that was with a an impressive third quarter from the Saints who managed to keep him locked down.
