Neither of these sides have had a great start to the 2017 season and are still chasing their first wins respectively.
Hawthorn have played well in patches against some quality opposition in their first two clashes. They looked the better side at stages against both Essendon Bombers and Adelaide Crows before being overrun.
Alastair Clarkson will be concerned with last week’s fade out against Adelaide. In the second half the Crows piled on 11 goals whilst the Hawks managed just three.
Gold Coast are coming of a pathetic display against premiership favourites GWS Giants, who gave them a football clinic and a 102 point hiding.
Gold Coast are a club under enormous pressure going into this match and another performance like last week will have the vultures circling.
Hawthorn need to gel as a team but that takes time. New inclusions in the off season were Tom Mitchell, Jaeger O’Meara and Ty Vickery and are all still getting used to a new game plan and new teammates.
Gold Coast are simply a team full of unrealised potential who rely on Gary Ablett too much. Ablett is out of form but is a living legend and we wait with baited breath to see if he can step out of the shadows
