Australian Football League Live Essendon Bombers vs Hawthorn Hawks Live Stream Free, AFL 2018 Regular Seasons Week 07 AFL Stream. Essendon Bombers vs Hawthorn Hawks match will be kickoff at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Saturday 05 May 2018 online, 14:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
Saturday afternoon football sees the old rivals, Essendon and Hawthorn, square off at the MCG at the traditional timeslot of 2.10PM.
The Hawks that have been posted as slight favourites in the head to head betting for the May 5 clash and all the action can be seen on Fox Sports.
Essendon have won just two of their six games this season and come off a 36 point loss to Melbourne last weekend. The Bombers haven’t quite lived up to their form from 2017 when they qualified to play finals and are languishing in 14th position on the ladder
Their opponents, Hawthorn, have fared better, winning four of six and in their Round 7 match they were too good for St Kilda, prevailing by 35. The Hawks are sitting pretty in 4th but are amongst a logjam of teams that are separated by just one game. A loss in this will see them back with the field.
Alistair Clarkson’s side can head in with some degree of confidence, given their standing on the ladder. They are 3rd in the competition for points per game, 4th for inside 50s and 5th for clearances.
Tom Mitchell continues to find plenty of the footy. The ball magnet is averaging 37 possessions per game, while Luke Breust sits 2nd on the goalkicking table with 19 majors after six weeks of footy. They are two players that the Bombers will need to stop.
John Worsfold’s side will need more from a host of players, including Joe Daniher, who was held goalless last weekend and they will need to avoid making the skill errors that plagued them in the second half against the Demons last weekend.
