AFL Live Geelong Cats vs Hawthorn Hawks Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 02 match will be kick off at MCG Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Monday 02 Apri 2018 online, 15:20 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The modern-day rivals of the AFL, Geelong and Hawthorn, meet in the final game of Round 2 in the traditional Easter Monday clash at the MCG.
Both sides come off wins in Round 1 and the action gets underway at 3.20PM. Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game.
Geelong have been posted as favourites in early markets and come off a thrilling win over Melbourne last weekend when the Demons big man, Max Gawn, missed a goal in the dying seconds to gift the Cats a three-point win.
Hawthorn enjoyed a slightly more comfortable victory by defeating Collingwood in their season opener by 34 points. Tom Mitchell was the star for the Hawks and picked up an AFL record of 54 possessions.
He was assisted in the midfield by Jaegar O’Meara, who was brilliant early on in the game and the battle between the Hawks on-ballers and Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield, Gary Ablett and Joel Selwood shapes as a beauty.
Dangerfield missed the Cats win last weekend but Ablett and Selwood were brilliant. The Cats were also dangerous in their forward line and slammed on 12 goals in the first half, with Daniel Menzel booting four for the game.
The Cats have been very efficient inside their forward 50 and the Hawks defenders will need to be on the ball. James Sicily and James Frawley will both have key roles in that part of the ground for the brown and gold.
Expect these two sides to go helter-skelter early on and the team that can manage their weary legs late in the game will get up in what should be another tight contest at the MCG.
