Illawarra-Perth Nov 11
Don't expect the floppy cats to get 10 less fouls than the Hawks this game. The best thing I like about the Hawks crowds is they get involved. If they aren't pouring beer over pesky opposition players, they let them know from the sidelines they are playing in one of the toughest cities in Australia. Steeltown. The home of the Owen machine gun, proudly made at the BHP Springhill works.
The Hawks will be keen to coming out all guns blazing after a stirring victory against Melbourne, so this game will be bitter hand to hand combat all the way.
Perth had a great win against Brisbane earlier in the round with the Cotton 3 on the final siren being the decider.
This game will be close, there is no denying that, but when the guns fall silent, I think the Hawks will walk away will the spoils of war. The final quarter should be an absolute humdinger!
