AFL Live Port Adelaide Power vs Hawthorn Hawks Stream AFL JLT Series 2017 Pre Seasons Week 04 match will be kick off at Hickinbotham Oval Stadium, South Adelaide, Australia, Sunday 12 March 2017 online, 12.40 (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
For the first time in more than a decade the Hawks will be without champions Sam Mitchell (now at West Coast), Jordan Lewis (Melbourne) and Luke Hodge (played with Box Hill).
But it will reel out the two recruits who can replace the aforementioned at the top of the club’s best and fairest count in former Swan Tom Mitchell and former Sun Jaeger O’Meara.
They will also face former Tiger Ty Vickery in the ruck and Hawthorn forward line while Jarryd Roughead returns after spending last season on the sidelines fighting melanoma.
The club paid a high price for Mitchell and O’Meara and assistant coach Brett Ratten said the club was confident they will be central figures in the its next era.
“They’re going to have an influence on this footy club for the next eight to 10 years,” Ratten said. “They’re very good players, very professional.
“They’ve played extremely well when they’ve come into the team. ‘Jaego’ had a run-with in the second half against North Melbourne — they sat on him for a while — and Tommy had 26 possessions from a bit of limited game time.
“They know how to find the footy and they’re quality players.
“It is a changing of the guard a little bit in that regard.
“You want things to go forever but they can’t and you need to change and adapt very quickly to the next season.
“But to have Jaego and Tommy come in and some of the development of our other players as well has been enormous.”
