AFL: Ten players to watch in 2015, including Hawthorn & Sydney Swans stars
Essendon verdict: 34 players found not guilty by AFL Anti-Doping tribunal following supplements scandal
Essendon verdict: ASADA may appeal AFL Anti-Doping Tribunal’s not guilty decision on 34 Bombers players
Old rivals Essendon and Hawthorn meet at the MCG on Sunday afternoon in a fixture that always produces plenty of fireworks.
The Bombers will be looking to get one on the board following its dramatic late fade out against Sydney last week, but there’s no doubt that they’re up against it against the reigning premiers.
Hawthorn totally outclassed premiership contenders Geelong on Easter Monday, running out 62-point winners at the MCG.
It was a performance that suggested Alastair Clarkson’s side are well on their way to a three-peat unless a rival side significantly picks up its game.
Hawthorn are the raging favourites, but form almost goes out the window in this one.
Make sure you tune in, it promises to be a cracker.
