What it means for Hawthorn:
The Hawks need to be near-perfect to keep their slim finals hopes alive, but September footy will still be on the agenda for Alastair Clarkson. Victory in Launceston will keep the momentum going.
What it means for Fremantle: The season is quickly slipping away from the Dockers. Injuries are compounding lamentable losses and finals suddenly look a distant prospect. They need a win on the road to settle the nerves.
The stat: Fremantle has a dismal record in Launceston, winning just one of its 11 games at the venue. That win came in the famous 'siren-gate' victory over St Kilda back in 2006.
The match-up: Dan Howe v Nat Fyfe
Stopping the inspirational Fremantle captain could be key to Hawthorn's hopes of securing victory in Launceston. Howe has done a good job on a number of talented opposition midfielders recently, limiting Scott Pendlebury's influence on Friday night. Expect him to go to Fyfe this weekend.
It's a big week for: Mitch Lewis (Hawthorn)
The young Hawthorn forward enjoyed a breakout performance last week, with his contested marking and ability to hit the scoreboard a highlight of his display. He'll now be looking to add consistency to his game and has a great opportunity to do that on Saturday.

Big call: Breust recaptures his best form, kicks five in a cruising Hawks win.
Prediction: Hawthorn by 23 points

Welcome back Birch. Two years battling a knee injury and a credit to his determination. After today people will stop laughing when I say we will make finals. Hawks will come home with a storm ...
Look, if you're going to take this game seriously it's going to REALLY wreck the vibe of what has the makings of a morbidly funny gameday thread :D

Hawks should win but you have to be wary of the Dockers bouncing back after Ross has been slammed all week.

I love footy history between these two in which historically the Hawks have dominated.

Rioli went nuts some years ago ( may have been in the last qtr ) when they overcome a deficit at the MCG. Ran away with it in the end.

2015 game in Tassie when the Dockers were top and got crucified.



Fyfe needs a big one today. I'm looking forward to this fixture.
