Show Preview

It’s do or die for Hawthorn, as they travel to Perth to take on West Coast in a game both teams will be desperate to win. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 8:10pm AEST.

Given last week’s massive win over Gold Coast, Hawthorn can still make finals, remarkably. It’s technically a rather convoluted path – win today, hope Adelaide upset the Bulldogs tomorrow, hope nothing else disastrous happens. Let’s stay with that first step first; winning against the reigning premiers in Perth. It won’t be easy.

West Coast are coming off a narrow loss to Richmond last Sunday, and will be comfortable in the knowledge that a win here will guarantee top four, and will go a long way to boosting them to a top-two position (granted, top two is a much harder aspiration, given it relies on other teams producing the results the Eagles need).

The Eagles midfield is comfortably the better of the two sides, and they have the forward power to trouble the Hawks – although they’ll be wary, given their struggles in overcoming Adelaide at this ground a fortnight ago.

With a boisterous West Australian crowd against them, the Hawks will have plenty to consider headed into this game. Shutting down the Eagles’ dangerous forward line is one of them – James Frawley will help with that, given he managed to keep Josh Kennedy goalless already this season, while they’ll need young gun James Worpel to produce another silky midfield performance he’s becoming renowned for.

They won’t have Jarryd Roughead to help with the effort, though – the legend has opted to skip the trip to Western Australia, declaring last week’s six-goal haul the last of his career.

Teams wise, it’s two changes apiece. Mark Hutchings is a casualty for the Eagles, ruled out with an injury, while Josh Rotham has been omitted. Chris Masten and Liam Duggan have been omitted. The Hawks have replaced Roughead and Changkouth Jiath with Daniel Howe and Jack Scrimshaw.

West Coast by 46 points
