Match of the round by an absolute mile.
Hawthorn-Geelong clashes always produced the goods and this will be no different with both sides aiming for a home qualifying final.
Chris Scott brings back Jimmy Bartel and Jordan Murdoch back into the side after both players missed the Cats’ narrow victory over Carlton last week.
The biggest in all of perhaps is the return of Jarryd Roughead for the Hawks, who returns after missing last week’s loss to the Dockers through suspension.
This contest is almost too close to call, but the Cats have the wood over the Hawks and it just may continue.
1. Steve Johnson proved the difference between the sides earlier this season, in round 5 at the MCG he was best on ground with 34 possessions and three goals; Tom Hawkins once again proved a handful for the Hawks defence kicking five goals.
2. Geelong is the number one ranked team for marks Inside 50 this season, averaging 13.9 thanks to Tom Hawkins who is ranked second, with 3.8 per game. Hawthorn is ranked fourth.
3. Since 2009 Geelong has won 12 of 13 contests between the sides; nine have been decided by single figures and six have been decided by less than a goal.
4. These teams are heavily contrasted when it comes to tackling: Geelong is ranked second averaging 72.4 per game while Hawthorn is last with 61.2.
5. Also heavily in Geelong’s favour is the record between the sides at the MCG; 15 wins to five the Cats’ way; three of the Hawks wins have been in finals.
6. Sam Mitchell averages 16.9 Official AFL Player Ratings points against Geelong – his best against any side.
