Brisbane haven’t beaten Hawthorn since 2019 and with the Hawks playing seriously good footy at the moment and the Lions overcoming their injuries, I am on the Hawks and will lay a unit on the win and a few on the Line. 

Hawthorn have won three of their past five and their 7 losses have been to seven teams in the current top-eight. Brisbane are on the cusp and the Hawks have beaten mid-pack teams and went within a whisker of beating the Power last week. 

  • Hawthorn have won their past 4 games against Brisbane. 
  • The Hawks have not lost to a team outside of the current top-eight.
  • Hawthorn have won 3 of their past 5 matches.
  • Hawthorn have won both of their games at Marvel this season.

Head to Head 

The Hawks hold the Hoodoo over the Lions, winning all 4 matches they have played since the opening round of the 2020 season.

Hawthorn have two wins in Launceston and two wins at the MCG, including a 98-73 victory in 2023.

The Hawks will come into their clash with a chip on their shoulder after letting a 41-point third quarter lead slip against the Port Adelaide Power, losing the match by one point in the final minute of the game. 

How the young Hawthorn side will react to the disappointment will be a telling tale of their season, with a good response and a win over Brisbane this week setting them up for a strong second half of the season and overachieving on their expectations in 2024. A loss could see them spiral back down to the bottom of the ladder, despite winning 3 of their past 5 games after losing their opening five matches.

Hawthorn Team News

James Sicily is fit to play this week. Chad Wingard has performed well in the VFL and was on the edge for selection this week.

Despite their injury crises, Brisbane handed Richmond their ninth-biggest loss of their history, thumping the Tigers by 119 points in Round 10 at the Gabba.

The Lions are showing their true character and depth of their development after their backline has been decimated by injury. Brisbane have had a tumultuous start to the year but when the going gets tough the tough get going and the Lions have now gone undefeated with two wins and a draw in their past 3 games despite their health issues. 

Brisbane mids are still clearing the ball well as the best team in the AFL in that department at stoppages. The Lions are a top-four side getting the ball into their attacking 50 and if they can improve their accuracy they will continue to win games.

Zac Bailey will return this week with Brandon Starcevich expected next week.
