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.

Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match on Saturday night at University of Tasmania Stadium in Launceston, starting from 7:25pm AEST.

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.
