Not expecting a win, but hopefully it will be an honorary loss instead of being belted by 50+ points.

If Hawthorn do manage to outplay Brisbane, I'll be as happy as Larry :p

Pitto gives physicality at ground level and lays tackles on oppo mids. Not many rucks do that. A fortnight ago people were bemoaning that Soldo towelled us up in the hit outs. We cant have it all. He deserved another game after last week. I'm actually keen to see how he goes vs Martin. Who I reckon is overrated. Cegs is in good form and finding the footy. We can win this part of the game. Hoping it gives us a stoppage advantage, which they've beaten us in the last 2 games we've played.
Pretty sure Brisbane is one of the top teams from stoppages so if we can even things out in that dept it will go a long way to winning the game

And that’s enough for me. Hope you all enjoyed the updates. Really was the lightest of sessions just to get familiar with the Gabba. Spirts were good. I’m sure we will give it a good show tomorrow night. Go hawks!
Curiously asking Brishawk how was the ground surface while you were there? By memory the GABBA gets pretty dewy for night games so hopefully the boys have the long studs packed. Last thing I want to see is anyone going to ground during the game which is what these walkthroughs are great for IF the boys were paying attention. Guys like Sammy Mitchell would be straight onto theses things.

It wasn’t dewy. Gabba is a great surface. Certainly not as dewy as it gets at Metricon.
