Hawthorn vs Gold Coast Match Up

Most predictions for 2021 would have the Gold Coast Suns improving yet again whereas the aging Hawks look set for a rebuild and, with that, a likely lean period.

In the second half, Hawthorn stopped what looked a likely blow-out against the Bulldogs last week. Now with a few games behind them at this venue, they have that in their favour along with an extra day's rest over the travelling Gold Coast.

The Stuart Dew-coached Suns will be eager to end what's been a promising 2020 on a high and with the shackles hopefully released from both sides with no finals up for grabs, we'll hopefully see a more open and high scoring contest.

That does play into Gold Coast's hands should that occur as they are a quicker side over the field and, when firing, can score heavily.
