Some big farewells this weekend and none bigger than in this game with Bob Murphy and Luke Hodge’s last games.
Both sides should be up and about but with the Dogs’ finals hopes clinging by a thread you would think they have the obvious reason to be fired up.
Hodge has been for the Hawthorn football club and even Jordan Lewis says he’ll turn up and watch the game and see Hodge in the rooms before the game.
Now that tells me a lot and tells me that Hawthorn will win this and extinguish any finals thoughts the Dogs have.
Both players have been magnificent, Hodge with the flags he has won and Bob with the one he inspired others to win.
No losers here even though the scoreboard might say that at the end of four quarters.
Just think the Dogs don’t have one more left in them like the Hawks do
I’m tipping Hawthorn, but not by a lot and I hope both players get the send-off they deserve.
If it’s not a full house then I’d be disappointed.
Hawthorn at $2.07
Western Bulldogs at $1.78
Tip: Hawthorn at $2.07
Line tip: Hawthorn +3.5
