THIS should be one of the games of the season and quite possibly a preview of this year’s Grand Final. The Swans have been outstanding in winning their past 12 matches and could be bolstered by the return of Kurt Tippett and Dan Hannebery to an already-powerful side. But Josh Gibson and Brad Hill are back for Hawthorn, which is inching closer towards full strength at the right time of the year. The teams are evenly matched, but the Hawks might have the edge in outside run – and that counts for plenty at the MCG.
