    Match preview:

    The Hawthorn Hawks host the struggling Gold Coast Suns at their home away from home Launceston. Join The Roar live at 1:45pm Saturday 23rd June for live scores and a blog.

    Hawthorn will look to try and crack the top eight before the weekend finishes with a win over the Gold Coast Suns in Tasmania, Gold Coast will look to try and resurrect a season that is in free fall after starting with some hope.

    Hawthorn have had an up and down season at times this year but are riding back to back wins and will look to make it three in a row.

    Gold Coast have lost their last seven and are coming off an absolutely heartbreaking loss to the Saints in the previous round.

    Tasmania has always been a strong home for the Hawks despite some losses in recent seasons they are still a daunting prospect for any team down south.

    The Suns however have recent form against the Hawks and despite neither of the games being played in Tasmania the Suns will hope that form from last season can continue on Saturday.

    Final quarter struggles have been the talking point for the Suns who have scored just four points from their previous four final quarters including being held scoreless last weekend as the Saints ran over the top of them.

    Hawthorn will have two potential last minute changes to their side with Paul Puopolo and Ben McEvoy awaiting the arrival of babies this weekend, at this stage it may be wise to count them out of the team just in case.

    The potential loss of both players could hurt the Hawks but with the strength of opponent being taken into consideration it may not matter.

    Gold Coast will just want to put on a solid display for an entire game this week after last week started so well, if they can make a contest out of it for the full game then first year coach Stuart Dew will be happy with his side.

    Alastair Clarkson won’t want his men to drop what could be a crucial game going into the second half of the season and will expect nothing less than a dominant display across the board.

    Hawthorn being a far better team on paper and their recent record in Tasmania should be more than enough to get them the win over the Suns. If Gold Coast want to turn their season around though this week may be the best time to do it by catching the Hawks off guard.

      The suns are that bad they even corrupt teams playing against them. I mean they still win but it’s ugly as hell. I gather it was a little windy down there today but

      Hawthorn far too dominant for the Suns.

      Hawthorn have cruised to a 53 point win at their Tasmanian home over the Gold Coast Suns. 13.18.96 defeating 5.13.43.

      Gold Coast started the game well kicking 3 of the first 4 goals and controlled the ball throughout, Hawthorn were missing Jack Gunston for large portions of the quarter while he was coping with a niggling calf injury. The first term was the one and only time the Suns looked like they were in the game as the 2nd quarter completely flipped on it’s head.

      Hawthorn kicked 3 goals 6 behinds in the 2nd term to the Suns 0 goals 2 behinds to take a 13 point lead in what was a largely poor game in kicking terms. Gold Coast could not get any ball movement in the term, Hawthorn despite controlling it for the quarter were poor in front of the big sticks, the inaccurate kicking was preventing the Hawks from extending their lead by more. Taylor Dureya took the highlight mark of the game late in the 2nd quarter and despite it being a contender for mark of the year it was far from a contender for kick of the year as he missed the shot on goal after the siren.

      The third quarter was much the same for both sides as the Suns again went goalless for the quarter and the Hawks continued to kick away from them. The only positive for the Suns was that Hawthorn for all it’s scoring attempts couldn’t consistently kick goals. The Suns were goalless but the Hawks were 3 goals 6 behinds for the quarter.

      The Final quarter was again an inaccurate quarter with both teams missing easy shots on goal with both sides missing easy shots from directly in front. Gold Coast broke their hoodoo in the fourth quarter by finally kicking their first goal of the final term in over 4 weeks. They doubled up not much later but they were unable to build on those goals to get the game closer.

      Hawthorn kicked 3 late goals as they started to show some accuracy in front of goal but the game was already decided by that time. A late injury to Steven May and Shaun Burgoyne may have ramifications for both teams in the coming weeks,

      The Suns will again be going back North with a loss and will need to regroup before facing the resurgent Magpies at Metricon next week. Hawthorn have the daunting task of going to Spotless stadium to face the Giants at a ground they are yet to win at.
