Hawthorn Hawks vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Preview
It was after the 1987 Preliminary Final (Hawthorn v Melbourne, Gary Buckenara after the siren, 15-meter penalty, Jim Stynes) that Peter McKenna uttered the words “Never, ever write off Hawthorn.”
McKenna’s words still ring true in 2020 after the Hawks did an absolute number on reigning premiers Richmond last Thursday night.
Perhaps the Hawks just had an off-night when they went down to the Cattery a couple of weeks ago.
Their wins over Brisbane and Richmond this season have been quite impressive.
Hawthorn is developing a reputation of being giant killers having beaten every team that finished in the top six last year in their past 11 games.
North will be filthy about their loss to the Swans last Saturday.
They will be evenly matched with the Hawks and this game will be a good test in a clash between potential contenders.
With this being played at Marvel, it might actually work in North’s favour.
The Kangaroos in a close one.
