Thanks for coming and this is AFL. I can imagine the Hawks will be buoyant after last week’s amazing win over the Crows, but they have a tendency to play like superheroes one week and super duds the next.

They’re winning some big games but it’s because their defence is so stingy

If Collingwood can kick some goals then they can easily win.

Hawthorn were incredible last week and the big guns stood up.

Tom Mitchell (pictured above) is a ball magnet and while many argue he isn’t penetrating, I’ll point to the scoreboard and say he is.

The ball needs to be in someone’s hands and if its him, he generally does something good with it.

They play that extra man swooping in defence so well it upsets other teams.

Here’s an idea. Put someone on Luke Hodge so he’s not on his own.

Pendles (pictured below) plays game 250 and if there was ever a reason for some of the young Magpie stars to pull out the Mal Meninga, then this is it.

He’s a star and they should lift for him.

The Verdict

I think the Pies can win but I’m not confident.
