Geelong vs. Box Hill Hawks
Sunday 18th April
Skilled Stadium at 10.10am

The Box Hill Hawks this weekend travel down to Skilled Stadium to play Geelong in the AFL Curtain Raiser, for the Round 4 Geelong v Port Adelaide AFL clash.

Skilled Stadium in the past hasn’t been the best of places for the Hawks, who will look to re-write history of the past.

Box Hill last defeated Geelong away at Skilled Stadium in Round 7 of the 2007 VFL Season by 15 points.
As per my usual modus operandi, I've left all the good bits at the link:

I think he is on KFC diet to put on 10 kg in the next 2 to 3 weeks. Why isn't he playing is he injured?

11 HFC players whoo hoo.

Shame it is a curtain raiser. I would have wandered down to sleepy hollow, done some antique shopping, check out the surf shops, absorb the vibe.

It will be a great effort if we can go down there and come away with win. Geelong have the likes of Djerrkura, Hogan, Gamble, Rooke & Stokes running around for them.

The efforts of Lisle & Renton on West & Simpson will be very important.
