AFL 2014 Live Hawthorn Hawks vs West Coast Eagles Footy Kick Off On Aurora Stadium, Launceston, 13: 40 (AEDT) 7 th June 2014.
The Hawks will welcome the likely return of Jordan Lewis, Ben Stratton, Ben McEvoy and even Cyril Rioli whilst the Eagles could make a few changes after their loss to North. Mark Hutchings, Dom Sheed, Scott Lycett and Patrick McGinnity all performed well in the WAFL. Veteran defender Darren Glass could return too.
The injury-hit Hawks struggled to beat the Giants last weekend. They’re 3-3 over the last six games. They’re still 2nd on the ladder thanks to a strong percentage. The Eagles struggles are well documented having four wins over bottom five sides. They’re 11th on the ladder at 4-6 – two games outside of the eight.
These two played out a high scoring affair in round 13 last year. The Hawks kicked six goals to one in the second term to blow this game out of the water. Jack Gunston and Jarryd Roughead kicked five each whilst usual suspects Luke Hodge, Sam Mitchell and Jordan Lewis run amuck in the midfield. Josh Kennedy and Luke Shuey were the shining lights for the Eagles in their 20-point loss.
