Hawthorn Hawks vs Western Bulldogs Preview

If the season were to start just before Clarko got the lemon and sarse, sorry “Transition plan”, I should say – Hawthorn would be top of the ladder.

Of course, that would be the case, as Alistair Clarkson somehow makes life harder and harder for Sam Mitchell to take over the top job next season.

The Hawks are back in Launceston (Touchwood) this Saturday and face a Western Bulldogs on the rebound from a shock loss to a rampant Essendon outfit last week.

It’s been a tough old week for the Dogs with the news that big man Josh Bruce is out for the rest of the season with an ACL injury, but the second-placed Bulldogs bat deep and have been one of the best teams all year for a reason.

You would expect the second-placed Western Bulldogs to get back on the winner’s list in this one, especially with spots 2-4 being a three-way tie with Geelong and Port on 60 points but in the words of Peter McKenna post the 1987 Preliminary Final “Never-ever write off the Hawks”

The underdogs have covered the line in seven of the Western Bulldogs’ last eight matches, and given Hawthorn’s form and the four-goal headstart they’ve given the Dogs – expect the Hawks to cover.
