A win for the Hawks against the Eagles takes the pressure off them for at least a week, whilst the Saints will look back on their match against the Cats as a missed opportunity to take 4 points off a top 4 team. Down by just 5 points at three-quarter time, the Saints were smashed in the 4th quarter by Joel Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield who guided the Cats to a 38 point win.
Whilst the Hawks proved that they could win against a West Coast Eagles line-up that did nothing to silence the critics who doubt their ability to play at the MCG, the big question is whether the win is a once off or a sign of the giant waking up.
Jaegar O’Meara returns for the Hawks to strengthen their midfield, but Cyril Rioli is a big omission with a hip complaint
Final Say: If the Saints recapture the form that took them to the final break against the Cats they will beat the Hawks on Saturday afternoon.

Saint Kilda at $2.00
