In summary - our midfield shits on theirs. Not worried about losing the tap outs with our junkyard dogs at their feet.

Dogs by 17.
Their rucks still present a worry and Clarkson is a much better coach than Longmire, he'll have a real plan to exploit our short backline.

I wish I shared that confidence but we're not a good wet weather team. Hopefully being shorter means we can run the ball better. We have to find an advantage and exploit it.

We have tended to over handball and over possess in the wet, leading to the eventual turnover.

One or two handballs and then kick!!

According to my mate who is a Hawks supporter Adelaide mids got a lot of the ball. Hawks just used it much better and in more dangerous places.

They of course have a very efficient forward line.

In other words this game will be very different to last week.
