Preview

Another two sides who don't like each other very much. Adding to the spectacle will be Jordan Lewis, who will play against the Hawks for the first time since leaving the club.

Jesse Hogan is likely to return, after missing last weekend due to the passing of his father. This will bolster a winning side, and provide even more confidence for a team that should already be thinking positively coming into the game.

Hawthorn have been one of the stories of the competition, their start to the year has been below par. The possible return of both Grant Birchall, and Cyril Rioli, should give their supporters some hope.

Melbourne's tenacity and attack at the football is exactly how the Hawks made a name for themselves. The Demons should be too strong in this department, and claim another scalp in season 2017.
