Australian Football League Live Hawthorn Hawks vs Gold Coast Suns Stream AFL 2016 Seasons Week 14 match will be kick off at Aurora Stadium, Tasmania, Australia, Sunday 26 June 2016 online, 15.20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Hawthorn continue to creep their way up the ladder, and should do so again against a hapless Gold Coast.
Hawthorn are still putting together unconvincing wins, the latest over an injury-riddled and inaccurate North, which followed a rout against Essendon and grinding performances over Melbourne and Brisbane.
Gold Coast have notched ten straight losses, but there may have been some light at the end of the tunnel against Richmond pre-bye, when they led at three-quarter time for the first time since Round 3.
Gold Coast are yet to defeat Hawthorn in the seven times they’ve met. The Hawks average winning margin has been 54 points.
Hawthorn have won 16 matches in a row at Aurora Stadium, at 65% ATS and 59% at the over. In this run, they have failed to reach 100 points only three times, and haven’t conceded 100 there. They’ve started $1.10 or less nine times.
Gold Coast has one win from 14 interstate games under Rodney Eade, at -57% POT, 29% ATS and 79% at the over. Their opponent has scored 100 or more in 13 of those.
Hawthorn have won four in a row, and six of their last seven, but are yet to convince against a series of easybeat teams, and an injury-riddled North. Gold Coast shapes as another victim, particularly down at the Hawks’ Launceston fortress.
Gold Coast put in a brighter performance against Richmond pre-bye, and are starting to field a better and more experienced team each week, which should ensure a rise in competitiveness.
Many teams go down to Tassie to play the Hawks already beaten, and the Suns may be another. But if they can put up a fight, they can make a less than sharp Hawthorn work for it.
